“Nice place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Stopped on our drive through Carmel for breakfast with my mom and sister. This is more of a low key place for Carmel and the portions are quite large. The breakfasts that we ordered all had a bit of a Spanish twist to them but all the food was good and so was the service.

“Great food & attentive service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Ordered the spaghetti with meatsauce and my husband had the curried chicken. The bread and olive oil w/spices kept us company until both dishes arrived hot and tasty. Just a shopping center restaurant with a casual, but nicely creative (slightly artsy) atmosphere. Service good. A little pricey, but not by Carmel standards. A good value overall.
