I like making a stop at this bakery every time I visit Carmel. Ice cream is delicious and for me coffee is also excellent. The only problem is that it's always full and the place is small so during a weekend it will be very difficult to find a spot to seat. Very nice and friendly staff.

We noticed that it opened at 7 AM and decided to return the next morning for breakfast. The window display is stunningly delicious. And the food match the window display the next morning we went in for breakfast.... More

I was heading out of town and wanted a last hurrah. I had the pecan pastry and it was spectacular. Typically, these are dry, but this was just perfectly gooey with tons of pecans. I ordered several pastries in a variety of styles to take home to the family. I will definitely come again next time I am in town.

The bakery offered delicious sweets and coffee. I wish we had more time to try some of the other delights.

Just great here for many reasons: fast efficient friendly service, fresh delicious sandwiches and wraps and the prices are reasonable for Carmel. Take your treat to the park or beach to enjoy.
