We came for sandwiches and salads and soup and a smoothie, and all were delicious! Nice to find a quick, healthy option.

Stopped in to Carmel Belle for a quick smoothie and avocado toast and ended up returning for lunch later in the day. Though pricey my avocado toast was delicious as was the smoothie. I sampled a GF peanut butter cookie and would definitely indulge in one - so good. For lunch I split a large salad with avocado and the... More

Looks good from the menu. Went on a rainy Saturday and got in line while 2 of our party looked for a table. Friendly staff. Fairly long wait for food (and single bathroom which was clearly not enough for 40 or more diners) . Food was underwhelming - average. We choose the polenta bowl with mixins (bland), open-faced egg bacon... More

Many local chefs eat here to get a quick, organic and high quality bite to eat. The Chicken Rotisserie Salad is the most creative and best tasting version of a Cobb you will find anywhere.

Belle has counter service, which is unheard of in Carmel, so you can get in and out relatively quickly. The food is fresh, though a little bland. Breakfast is your best bet here.

On a whistle stop break in Carmel we nipped in for some much needed coffee. Quick and friendly service and good coffee too.

Went there for a quick lunch, with organic food. Menu is standard lunch stuff (salads, chicken, burgers...). Well and quickly prepared. We also took a take away plater of cheese and ham, and this was a nice apetizer side with champagne on the balcony with sunset.

Be sure to stop in and have lunch or a coffee and treat. Buy the granola for sure. Kid friendly and the choices are many. Really good soups.

Carmel Belle has recently expanded their seating area, and it is SO COZY. You can grab a fresh juice on the go, meet a friend for a cup of coffee, or take your family out for a nice meal. They have it all. Perfect location, fresh menu items (you can sin or stay on track with their selections).

Carmel Belle is a counter-service, casual eatery and coffee bar serving breakfast, lunch and (early!!) dinner. Open daily at 8 am, but call ahead before coming in the evening; they close between 5-8pm depending on the day. Patio, cards accepted. We've stopped in for a delicious breakfast. Prices are middling to high based on downtown Carmel and self service; food... More
