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 Saturdays and Sundays to avoid a line out the door. Oh, and the corned beef... More

It's a tiny little place just outside of Carmel a ways, but the breakfast we had was delicious. It was a little hot inside but we sat by the window. Service was good. Would definitely go back!

We were in town for 3 days and visited this restaurant each morning The eggs benedict are wonderful. Ironically the owner is from Minnesota as we are. I highly recommend this spot. You won't be sorry.

A true authentic Cowboy diner complete with lots of cowboy memorabilia all over the walls, ceilings and counters. It's a throwback from a bygone era and you can enjoy seeing many photos of local cowboys that you might even bump into.

We visit Carmel Valley about once every two years and Wagon Wheel is always on our checklist of restaurants to visit for good food at a reasonable price. We love their breakfasts and enjoy their outdoor seating on a nice day. Very casual.

This place is a must for breakfast lovers. The Biscuits and gravy are so good. As are the pancakes made with fresh berries. We always stop at this place when we are in the neighborhood.

The western decor was fun, the staff was very friendly/easy-going, and the food was delicious! I especially enjoyed the oatmeal pancakes... I don't think I'm going to be able to enjoy eating regular pancakes ever again after trying them. So good! Pro Tip: They only accept cash, but they do have an ATM outside.
