We enjoyed a little treat while exploring Carmel. The prices are reasonable for what one gets, considering the location. I had the gingerbread man cookie. I would have loved more ginger flavor. That's the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

After a full day sightseeing we stopped here and thoroughly enjoyed a couple of ice creams. Some great friendly staff seem to cheerily keep the line of customers moving quickly despite their difficulty in making their choices.

A perfect pit stop in a perfect town. Shame it is Starbucks coffee rather than a local but the pastries were fab.

Absolutely love this Bakery. Our favorite in all Carmel actually. All the pastries are delicious and are perfect for eating while strolling along the streets of Carmel by the sea.

I've been to Carmel-by-the-Sea several times but have never gone to the bakery until today. The coffee and pastry are good and the prices are reasonable. Three of us got drinks and pastry and spent less than $20. There's no dedicated parking, but there's ample...More
