This was a cute busy little place with lots of yummy looking options. We ordered a few different items. All were good but my husband says he had the best sandwich of his life from here - the Cuban.

Wandered up Ocean Avenue looking for a quick bite and stepped inside as was busy and had a selection of sandwiches, soups, coffees etc. Lady behind the counter was confused with an off menu order question- it was as if i'd asked in Greek. Anyhow, had a soup and a sandwich and was fine but, i think their thing is... More

This little gem in Carmel is by far one of my all time favorite place to go. I have been going here for 52 year since I was a small. Absolutely love this place.

We smacked on their cheese pretzels as we wondered through Carmel and they were great. The service was very friendly. Location is very convenient right on Ocean Street.

I like making a stop at this bakery every time I visit Carmel. Ice cream is delicious and for me coffee is also excellent. The only problem is that it's always full and the place is small so during a weekend it will be very difficult to find a spot to seat. Very nice and friendly staff.

I was attracted to the Carmel bakery when walking down Ocean Avenue. The store was packed at 5 o'clock in the evening. We noticed that it opened at 7 AM and decided to return the next morning for breakfast. The window display is stunningly delicious. And the food match the window display the next morning we went in for breakfast.... More

Run do not walk to this bakery. EVERYTHING they bake is incredible, homemade sticky buns the size of a sucker, cream cheese Danish also the same size. You too will be uttering YES, YES, YES! After taking a bite of one of these Danishes. We went for breakfast and I ordered a breakfast burrito. Wow! Was I shocked when it... More
