I had the soup of the day - a carrot ginger - and the stone fruit salad for a quick lunch with my husband as we were traveling through the area. Everything was delicious and well balanced. The salad was sweet & rich but still light and refreshing. The soup had just the right ginger kick. My americano was very... More

We stopped off here on our way north and glad we did. It's a bit hidden - inside a shopping complex without a roadside entrance I could find. The freshly made empanadas were great and the poached eggs on toast were very good. Service is friendly and helpful.

Carmel Belle is such a great place to get something that you know is going to be not only good quality fresh ingredients and healthier then the rest yet still delicious. I have been in several times for lunch and every time it has always been very good. This particular review is for their catering. This past weekend I had... More

Carmel Belle is located in a courtyard, so it's a little hard to find, but worth the search. We ate here during Monterey Car Week and the service was pretty quick, which is saying something since the show was packed! I had their Caeser salad and tomato soup and my husband had the BLT. Everything was good and fresh.

Located inside a small building ( not visible from the outside ) this is a large place, they have 2 stations, one to order your lunches and another for juices, deserts and coffee. The food is very very good. It look like a food court but with only one restaurant. Ingredients are fresh and the " service " is nice.... More

My family and I came here during the overlap of breakfast and lunch so we could order what we liked. The breakfast polenta was great, as were the lunch salads and the fresh juices. Lots of vegetarian options and lots of healthy options, at a reasonable price.

Excellent salads, blue cheese and chicken. Good and fresh products. You have to leave the commercial gallery to avoid noisy environment.

Stumbled on this quaint-chic bistro on San Carlos between Ocean and 7th. What a delight! Brisk order line and crisp and clever staff. Best BLT ever..seriously! Belle Bowl salads and Strawberry-rhubarb pie...oh..and a fabulous heirloom caprese salad. What a gem.....living large in California!

Had a nice breakfast here. The eggs benedict were good, if a bit bland. Truffled toast amazing. Good coffees too. Casual and comfortable
