Our meats are hormone-free, grass-fed/free-range and humanely raised in California. Our produce is largely organic and purchased from local farmers' markets, farmers, and/or distributors that support small farms. So please join us, and eat good food knowing that we would never serve you anything we wouldn't serve to our own family.

Be sure to order that, all ingredients are local, and made with a little more love! Even the fruit bowl will surprise you by what's in season along the California coast. It's a tiny place but worth a try, I would honestly say its one of the best places to eat in Carmel.

Fresh, inventive california cuisine. Stop in for breakfast, lunch or just a snack. The avocado on toast was delicious and the coffee first rate.

It was busy but we loved the relaxed, casual feel of this place. While located in an indoor shopping center, the food was great! We enjoyed the fresh ingredients. In particular, I enjoyed the slow roasted tomatoes!

We were there for breakfast and the food was fresh and tasty. The special that day was a poached egg & thick bacon (prepared to your liking) over a bed of mixed greens (that tasted as though fresh lemon was sprinkled as the dressing) and roasted tomatoes. The flavor between the tart and the egg/bacon combo was excellent. The service was okay. Nothing special in the realm of friendliness. This is where they could really improve and become a truly excellent establishment.

Be advised that this restaurant consists of an order counter and tables in an open area, sort of like the seating in a mall. There are shops surrounding the area, so you can have your food and people-watch. You order at the counter, pick up your food when it's ready and take it to your table. Since it's outside, if it's cold, you'll have to eat fast, as you and your food will get cold pretty quickly.

Guess you can tell we didn't really like it. Giving it an average rating because it would be more tolerable in warmer weather.
