Holiday Boutique

I came for their holiday boutique event. They had wine tasting by different wineries, live music, fresh appetizers, and a cooking demonstration by Chef Deric. It was a great time to visit, eat, and start my holiday shopping. It's a family business and they are friendly and great conversationalist.

We were in Carmel for Thanksgiving, Our research told us that Baum & Blume served Thanksgiving dinner in a pick-up/catering fashion. We made our reservation and then picked up our meals around 5pm. Apparently, they do this each Thanksgiving. They cook anywhere from full Thanksgiving meals with large turkeys and all the sides to smaller portions (as in our case).... More

We were staying at a house in Carmel Valley and did not feel like sitting in a restaurant. We were able to get a complete dinner at a reasonable price here and heat it up in the microwave. The food was cooked from scratch and was delicious. We had enchiladas, which came with a side of green beans and soup.... More

Food was quite good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sit in the beer garden if you can and enjoy the blue jays.

The Cafe is open Monday through Saturday offering a lunch and dinner menu with a waffle breakfast on Saturdays. The menu changes weekly and each Saturday, they offer 2... More

A small gem of a place. Hand-picked well thought-out store and handcrafted food offer so much to look forward to as you drive into Carmel Valley Village (yes, there is such a thing.) There is a beautiful outside seating if the weather is good, and the holiday mailer they send out is a lot of fun. This is a family... More

The food, festivities, boutique and folks are always delightful at this very creative and deightful establishment. In my 10 years of selecting some gourmet take-out at the end of a day , attending their special events (dinners, St. Patrick Day's luncheon with guests, an annual Holiday venue) or stepping into the Carriage House for a gift, card or plant, I've...

This sweet little place on a side street off of Carmel Valley Road is so unpretentious you might drive right past it -- and never have a quintessential Carmel Valley dining experience.,,,, But no! Don't miss it -- map it, and go. When you arrive, ask for a shady table on the tiny grassy patio ... ask for the wine... More
