Service slow even though there were only two other couples in restaurant. Overpriced breakfast for what you get. Server was friendly but only refilled our coffee when we got his attention.

We were looking to grab a quick bite and pulled into this place. Very family friendly and eclectic. We split a delicious BLT and the service was super fast and very friendly.

Off the beaten track Cafe Stravaganza as a very eclectic menu, offering something for every taste, and does a good job with all of it. Moderately priced for Carmel.
