Little place with strange name because what you can get is more Mexican or American food. The service was very friendly. They serve breakfast till they close. The pancakes were great.

We stopped in here passing through Carmel and had a great breakfast. Cash only and very small so be prepared for that. The burrito was huge and delicious!

The Little Swiss Cafe, a local institution, is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Breakfast being our favorite time to visit - with a wide and varied selection of items. The prices are reasonable and the service is great. Eggs Benedicts are fantastic and we often order a side of Hollandaise sauce to go with our omelettes. They also... More

I love this place. There is NO BETTER Eggs Benedict on the planet! They do everything right, serving Breakfast and Lunch. Crepes, eggs, hand-made soups, and a variety of sandwiches. You will not be disappointed, other than the often 1/2 hour wait to even get in the door. A small family owned Hot Spot in Carmel

Go here for their home made split pea soup. Best I've ever had. Had both breakfast and lunch in this very small cafe. Terrific Belgium Waffle and omelets for breakfast. Seating is cramped in the front section but there are a few booths available in the back. Lots of locals hang here and they're very friendly. NOTE: no plastic, you... More

Very mediocre place from breakfast. Coffee was cold and just bad. Other than the eggs benedict, the egg dishes were average. The croissant I ordered on the side turned out to be a bun! And when I pointed it out, the waitress refused to change ît to toast. A bit stingy with the helpings.
