Wow, what an amazing breakfast my family and I had. We went to Carmel/Monterey for the weekend and I found this place on Tripadvisor so I had to give it a try. Adorable Victorian house with such an inviting atmosphere. We had the chicken and waffle and the biscuit and gravy....both were unbelievable. I cannot wait to visit this place again...wish we had one just like it where I live. Don't forget to try the Chai Lattte...one of the best I've had.

A great hang out located in a beautiful Victorian on the main drag in Pacific Grove. They have creative menu offerings to make for a fun brunch spot! Take a walk down to the ocean after brunch...it's right there!

However high this place is ranked it deserves it. Incredible scones, pleasant wait staff, and interesting building. Now a repeat stop for us.

Went there for a Sunday Brunch. I had huevos rancheros, very good. My wife had waffles which she said were very good, not made from a mix, with real maple syrup. She said the coffee was good. I ordered tea ($4 a pot). We both liked the atmosphere and the service was good. Their hours are limited 9-3 Wednesday through Sunday. We are locals and will go back.

At first it was ok in spite of paying $5 for coffee... great little nooks and crannies to write in, lots of outlets for my writer's group. But then the Crema staff got an attitude about us being there... it wasn't like they were crowded or anything, either... plenty of room for everyone. I'm not sure what it was... we weren't spending enough money to suit them, I imagine...

Maybe they should have a cover charge for the privilege of sitting, writing, and sipping coffee? Or require that everyone buy one cup of coffee per hour or something. Oh, well, we're on to another location... and if Crema ends up in a few books or travel blogs... well, you reap what you sow.
