Stopped by for lunch while traveling through and glad I did! To start, we were there the first Friday after local schools closed for the season so the whole area was busy. I was afraid we wouldn't get parking but the restaurant has free, off street parking! When we walked in most of the tables were full save a couple that needed to be bused before the next guest could sit down. This is a busy spot and they only had two waitresses on duty so it took a few minutes for us to be seated. However, it was worth the wait as we got a spot on the patio overlooking Plymouth Bay.
This place has a quick, casual (almost diner) feel. The service was sufficient and friendly but don't expect to see your server more than a couple times. As for food, I had the fish sandwich- a great choice! It was just a plan hamburger bun, and the lettuce and tomato were unappealing, but the fish filet made up for it. The fish was fried to perfection with a light and crispy batter. The onion rings are also quite good. My friend got the cranberry walnut salad which she also enjoyed. She also requested a side of fries ($3) which were just okay.
All in all, it was a good visit to Carmen's Cafe. I would certainly go back and recommend trying it if you're in the area. Just go into it thinking "diner with a view" and you'll be all set!
