We were recommended by a local to try this place and we were delighted with the experience. A cosy welcoming place - very friendly staff and laid back, relaxing atmosphere. The breakfasts were terrific and hit the spot! There were 4 of us travelling from Australia and we had the usual discussion about the bill, which was perfectly reasonable. The waitress then informed us that some person who wished to remain anonymous had settled our bill! Incredible! She was sworn to secrecy and would not tell us. It was our first time in Carmel and we do not know a soul there. An amazing experience to top off a delightful breakfast. Would recommend it regardless of our benefactor! Many thanks to whoever this generous person is.

Ate breakfast at this small restaurant our first morning in Carmel. Best eggs benedict we have ever had. We have eaten there two more mornings and can also give high marks to their omelets and huevos ranchero. Large portions so bring your appetite. Service is friendly and attentive and the ambiance warm and inviting. Paintings on the walls are not to be missed. Only drawback is they only accept cash so leave your plastic behind.

This is a cute little restaurant with a lot of charm. We went for breakfast and it was fine and reasonably priced just not amazing. My waffle tasted very salty for a waffle and they loaded everything with dollops of butter so it was pretty heavy. Service was so sweet and the place is quaint. I'd definitely visit again just because of that. Do be aware they take only cash though....

Food is very old school and cooked just like you remember breakfast tasting as a kid! This tiny place is no frills, but friendly service, great food and funky atmosphere!
