Marvelous fresh salads with heirloom tomatoes are a meal in themselves. Service is friendly and efficient. This place is well managed.

Everyone raves about this place! We didn’t book so couldn’t get a table (it was Saturday so we should have known!). Instead we got a takeaway and sat out in the village. We could totally see why everyone raves about it - absolutely amazing!

My sister-in-law and I split a Lorraine pizza while our husbands had a vegetable pizza and a mushroom pizza. We had made reservations to sit outside on the umbrella covered tables. Temperature was perfect, but count on 10 degrees hotter than Carmel, so dress accordingly....More
