Our waitperson Carmen, told us to sit anywhere. Lots of seating but decor a little rustic. Ordered organic beef burgers on wheat buns. Great tasting, but unimaginative sides. Organic potato chips, too salty pickles. Coming from Berkeley we expect something other than potato chips, like maybe a little salad. But still, the burger was worth it.

We stopped by for breakfast cuz we saw that they could accommodate vegetarians and we were all just thrilled! Including the meat eaters. Our host even sat down with us and helped us out with our tourists' journey - he even drew a (hilariously crazy) map. If you are looking for fine dining don't come here - this is a... More

Organic and Delicious, good for the body and soul. Totally fun place to have breakfast when visiting anywhere in Carmel Monterey area. This restaurant was one of the first Organic restaurants in the area and proven successful with near 50 years in business. Highly recommend the "regular" Eggs Benedict! Great and reasonably priced.

This restaurant is located very near the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The sandwiches at this restaurant are amazing! The honey aioli is a must-have; I have yet to find it anywhere else. My kids loved their food as well. Everyone licked their plates clean. The staff was ok; they were not professional or dressed in uniform. The utensils also seemed a... More

For us east coasters who crave a good veg restaurant this casual spot delivers. I had a Mediterranean platter (oops, with grilled chicken). My other half had vegetarian paella. Servings were quite large. Hippy chic vibe. Great 60s and 70s music playing. Interesting desserts but we were too full. I likely will stop by again before returning to the east.

We enjoyed our food here. Old school home style vegetarian food. Not fancy but tasty. Service was lovely as well as being efficient. Off the main tourist drag, about 10 minutes walk from Cannery Row,but worth the effort.

This establishment does not take food allergies seriously, and will call you a liar to your face when you tell them you have one, rather than just apologizing for making an error on an order. My husband and I have lately been coming to Tillie Gort's for brunch just about every weekend, and often came in during the week for... More

We recently came here on our anniversaryt trip and purchased a Groupon. We got here in the early afternoon and the place was empty. We were told to seat ourselves. Went to the dining area and couldn't sit by the window because there was empty dirty tables that haven't been cleaned up yet. We reviewed the menu and I ordered... More

I was initially excited by the gluten free options offered by Tillie Gort's. It's hard to find gluten free accommodating restaurants. For lunch I ordered the pesto cream and chicken pasta with gluten free pasta and was a little disappointed by the small portion and the hefty price tag - $16.50!?! Yikes. This was more expensive then the fine dining... More
