It is nice to have this lounge in the Carmel Mission Inn. The staff are wonderful. This is great for a night cap and you don't have to drive.

This restaurant offers a good breakfast and dinner menu. The breakfast omelettes and the sandwiches and burgers are nicely presented and very tasty. The restaurant is family friendly. The staff is very attentive.

For such a nice hotel, I was surprised that the restaurant was just okay. The staff is great and attentive, but everything that came out of the kitchen was just okay. Nothing special. Very average.

Best locals happy hour, I think its still sort of a best kept locals secret that this type of happy hour even exists so I probably shouldn't even be reviewing this. If you order just one glass of whatever you get a small plate for their complimentary food buffet which always consists of cheeses, fruit, soup and other various items... More

Located in the Carmel Mission Inn, the restaurant is simple and basic .. but the breakfast buffet is over $15 ...l One would expect it include for the exorbitant price of the rooms!

Good choices, including sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, potatoes, french toast, fruit, and coffee or juice. Coffee was really good.

The Breakfast Buffet was part of our package for part of our stay at Carmel Mission Inn. Three of the four mornings major offerings (eggs, bacon/sausage, French toast or Fruit) had run out--on my last morning 4/5! Restocking took 5-10 minutes on average-one of the days the bacon never was refilled. The wait staff never came around to refill my... More

The cover charge is only the cost of a drink...in our case a glass of Lohr chardonnay at $8. What you get is an unlimited buffet of clams and mussels in a nice broth, Caesar salad, cheese, bread, fruits, and more. Ate so many clams and mussels we had to get a second glass of wine. The place is bright... More
