“Local Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Visitors soon discover locals frequent the Little Swill for breakfast from the many people greeting one another. You can count on a hearty meal to start your day. Don't miss the hash browns!

“Not a big fan-overrated”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Not sure why everyone raves about this place well maybe its because I am not a pancake person and I think that's what they're known for. Plenty of other amazing breakfast spots i'd pick over this one!

“Our first meal in Carmel and it was a Bullseye!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We were taken to a "You have to eat here" breakfast by a local. We were not disappointed.
Very quaint place, seems like it's been there forever. Good people watching and interesting mural watching too. Had a great breakfast burrito to start my California trip.

Service, cleanliness, and prices were fine. We'll go back on our next trip.

“Decent”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Had a breakfast burrito, it was ok. Husband had the french toast, was decent. The place was charming, but not up to the standards for a restaurant in Carmel by the Sea.

Good service. Very well done food. Special Lamb pasta was very good, risotto with shaved truffles was really well done. Would recommend.
