This adorable place in Carmel Valley is quickly becoming a staple for locals as well as tourists. The decor is colorful and bright and the food is awesome. Tasty Panninis, THE best ice cream and shakes...great smoothie choices and fresh juice. Rachel, the owner, is a service pro at all levels and this place totally rocks! Love it
