“Great place to breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We loved this place for its local flavour. The coffee is good, really good, and the fresh baked breads and other items are great too! It is very busy around 09.00 and you may have to wait a while; but that I feel is a sign of somewhere that gives the customer what they want at a sensible price. People queued and chatted away to us and each other clearly not minding that is takes time to make good coffee.

The hotel we were at would charge $60 for what the Wild Goose charges $22 - it is no contest - drop by and enjoy the place. We will be back there tomorrow before heading home to the UK.

“A Fun and Funky Cafe With Great Bake Goods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Carmel was completely fogged in, so we rode our bikes into Carmel Valley where we were greeted with a warm, sunny day. Looking for a mid-ride snack we happened upon the Wild Goose Bakery. What a find! The place is totally laid back with a small town feel and a friendly and helpful staff. The case was filled with delicious looking, homemade pastries which made our decision difficult, but we finally settled on a strawberry muffin and slice of double chocolate bread. They were so delicious that we had to pick up some of their giant cookies for later. Great pastries and a beautiful bike ride, what more could you ask for?

“Friendly helpful staff and nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

Got lunch here on the recommendation of an art and craft gallery and we weren't disappointed. The member of staff who served us could not have been more helpful in explaining what things were and our choices and supplying us with extra cutlery so that we could share our choices. The home made bread we chose was split wheat - excellent for our turkey sandwich. The cake to follow was no more than average but overall food and experience were good.
