This is my new favorite coffee shop in Carmel. It's not the best coffee I've ever had but it hits the spot. The pastries are quite good - much better IMO than the bakeries in town.

Tucked back in one of the many alleyways with an adorable patio. They made me a cafe miel that wasn't on the menu, it was excellent. Very polite and helpful staff.

This is a real true coffee experience, they roast there own organic coffee here. Great baked items also. You won't be disappointed here if your a coffee aficionado. It's tucked away down a narrow walk way!

Pleasant service, quaint but better options. Didn't try the food, maybe that's their strong suit. We didn't leave feeling like we had anything special, so good in a pinch.

There are several coffee houses in Carmel and this one is one of the better ones. It is casual, somewhat dark and located on the main boulevard. There are tables inside. Service is very casual and helpful

Great place to get a cup of coffee or a cup of tea. We stop in each day we stay in Carmel, sometimes two or three times

When we first walked in I got a sense that the people working there were not happy, maybe that should have been a warning. We ordered a double espresso and a medium Vanilla Latte. The espresso was okay but bitter. The Latte was so hot...More

Stumbled across this and very glad I found it. Great coffee, great snacks and pastries and just quiet enough to be able to sit in the sun in the courtyard. Prices normal when compared to the inflated ones in other places in the town. Give...More
