“Need to give it another try”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

The servings were large and the food was tasty. Every plate brought out to our table looked like something I wanted to try. I had the crustless quiche which was so huge I took half of it home. The prices were actually decent for around here. Probably cheap by Carmel standards. We were a large party who needed separate checks and told our waiter so when we ordered. He said we could put our bill on multiple cards. Then when it came time to pay and we asked how we should proceed he said, annoyed, "you're all going to pay with separate cards? Really?" I'm not going to let one bad waiter spoil this review, however, because the other wait staff who helped us were friendly. I really want to give this place another try!

“Homestyle Cooking, Garden type setting”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Had a great breakfast here, service was very good. This place is tucked away in The Barnyard Center off Highway 1 and Rio Road. I recommend the food and setting, my only issue was all the flowers attract bees. Although they weren't aggressive they wanted my biscuit gravy :)

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Found by chance. Had great eggs Benedict twice three times whilst in Carmel. Burgers looked fantastic. Coffee by the bucket full. A great start to the day.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We were staying at the Mission Inn nearby on vacation and went to From Scratch by chance. We had a great breakfast and came back 3 more times while vacationing in Carmel - Monterey. Their portions are generous and the food is outstanding. One of the best breakfast places we've been.
