“A little bit of heaven”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I started with a butternut squash pizza to-go that I enjoyed parked on the coastline watching the waves crash in. I returned with my husband a couple days later for breakfast. Incredible. The French toast with fresh berries and eggs prepared in a cast iron pot cooked in a brick oven, yummy!

“Something Different for Breakfast in Carmel”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

On our Carmel walking tour we were able to taste the pizza from the wood burning oven and it was outstanding. So on get away day of our vacation we decided to try the interestng Breakfast Menu. The good news is they are open 7 days a week since they have to keep the oven up to temperature. There are a number of interesting items but we went for the Brioche French toast with fruit and eggs and the baguette with cheese. We were seated right by the kitchen and watched all the preparations for the various orders. Everything we saw looked great and the French Toast was delicious. The baguette with cheese was more like a bread stick with a taste of cheese so we would not re-order that especially if you are hungry. All in all it was a very enjoyable way to end our time in Carmel. We also recommend the pizza for lunch or dinner.

“Great lunch!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had a delicious lunch on Christmas Eve at La Bicyclette. The lamb sausage pizza and the Velo burger were both perfect. We had the dark chocolate budino with sea salt for dessert with a second glass of red wine. Prices were great, but the service was quite slow, as other reviewers have noted.
