I had a conventional breakfast except my meat was chorizo patty. All was good. We lingered for a final cup of coffee. A really great time. We know from... More

Put our name down and told half an hour so we waited. It was 50 minutes. We we were not warned that once seated we would wait another 45-1 hour to even see our food. We had to walk out. No pancake is worth that crazy wait. Just ask for an honest wait time once seated as well. Disappointing experience.... More

We always enjoy going to Carmel and we also enjoy going out for our breakfast. Again, we went to the Little Swiss Cafe in down town Carmel. The place is small but we always find a table. The place is truly Swiss and the Swiss pancakes are excellent. Our service was very good and our meals always satify our taste... More

Little Swiss Cafe is a cute and cozy place with homemade-like tasty food. Obviously the best place for the breakfast in the city.

Some of the nicest people we met while in Carmel. Obviously a place frequented by locals. The food is really good (pancakes are really more like crepes, but delicious). Be aware it is CASH only.
