Coffee, cakes and service were great. We had coffee there each morning and one for the road when we drove to Santa Barbara

Located on Ocean street, the Main Street of Carmel. They have very good coffee at a reasonable price.

As many times as I have been to Pacific Grove, I have never tried the Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting. I had a very good cup there and now I want to go back for more!

They have nice blends. Get the Carmel Foglifter for example. Am a local, go here and buy their coffee often, plus other locations. Boycott corporate coffee available elsewhere at no better or worse than local coffee prices, and get it fresher here.

We stopped in for coffee as we were exploring Carmel. What we found was not only multiple choices for what kind of coffee we wanted but we had so many choices from around the world. If you love coffee stop in. It's on Ocean Ave. on the way to the lovely beach.So much to see, so much to do, one... More

Great location, cute decoration, nice pictures on the wall. The hot chocolate (almost) doesn't contain chocolate and when we asked if we could have a little added -they very obligingly added some twice and it still had no taste! Very smiling staff but apparently neither the owner nor the staff has ever had hot chocolate :-(

Best vanilla chai latte that I have had! Husband enjoyed the coffee too! Excellent service and very quick - even when there was a very large crowd!

We were staying a few blocks from the Carmel Valley Coffee shop on Ocean Avenue. I got up early and walked over to get Lattes for my wife and I. The service was outstanding and the coffee is great. All hand pulled drinks very well done!

Thank Ouijaman
