We dropped my car off for service in Monterey and asked about a good breakfast place. The service manager said Wagon Wheel was the best and worth the 20 minute drive to Carmel Valley. I guess I had it hyped up too much in my...More

We walked over from Quail lodge and were so glad we did. A cute classic American diner. Lots on the walls, excellent service, quick and delicious food. The biscuits and gravy were great. You can't go wrong.

This place is the real thing--amazing breakfast. Scrambled eggs, pumpkin pancakes, and they also have breakfast tacos and burritos. So good! They only take cash and they have an ATM on site.

Love the food and friendly hometown service. Waffles and eggs are terrific. I had the huesvos rancheros which didn't really look Mexican at presentation but they were great and the 1/2 order is plenty. The waffles were terrific.

My spouse found the place when looking for an authentic American restaurant. You just know the locals love it when the first person you meet in the door is the county sheriff looking really pleased after his meal. Great ambience, tasty food and friendly staff.

You can always count on the Wagon Wheel for quick service, and a wonderful meal! It's family run and a small place with a line outside on weekends, but well worth the wait! Breakfast and lunch only!

Decided to stop here on our way to the Carmel Valley wineries. Be advised that they do not take credit cards. The owner and his wife are very friendly. Service is great. It is a very small place with lots of character. Pancakes are excellent....More

Try the waffles with fresh berries or the blueberry pancakes for breakfast—you won't be disappointed. This humble cafe looks like a hole in the wall, but the food coming out of the kitchen is down home goodness and the service is great. Come early on...More
