Found this wonderful little coffee shop while walking around after dinner and was excited to stop back in the morning. Hidden down one of the many courtyards in Carmel, the Carmel Coffee House has a large courtyard and a small seating area.

I have been going to this coffee shop quiet a bit since I have started working out of our Carmel office. Yes, I am a local.

Every morning I spend in Carmel, my ritual is to walk to Carmel Coffee to get my coffee. The staff is great and generally I'll have a wait for I'm not the only person with the same ritual.

Stopped off in Carmel and found this quaint little coffee hose down a little alley. My husband enjoyed his coffee and cake and I enjoyed my tea not so sure about the "Quiche"

Lovely coffee shop with great pastries and full range of hot drinks, etc. Has a nice outdoor courtyard to enjoy and public restrooms down the alley which are amazingly clean!

Fantastic no-pastry Quiche and very good coffee. Sitting in the courtyard away from the crowds of Carmel is serene and idyllic. Fast, friendly service with a no pressure vibe.

Carmel Coffee House is a cute little coffee shop with good coffee and good baked goods but their breakfast sandwiches are pre-made (seem like the frozen kind) and not very good and overpriced. The coffee was really good, though.
