Recently visited this cafe for breakfast and had the most delicious omelet and unbelievable service! I decided to give it a second try for lunch and i can honestly say one of the best restaurants I've been to. My dad had a fish sandwich and said it was the best fish sandwich he has ever had, mind you my father... More

Sadly, we missed breakfast hours the day we went here, and maybe that made the difference. We both got Mexican foods for lunch, and both dishes were alright, but not great. The highlight was the clam chowder we got to start -- yeah, that was pretty good. But overall, we left thinking "well, that's done, we're not hungry now," rather... More

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... More

Stopped by for breakfast on the waterfront. Ordered eggs Benedict, one of my favorites. Was not disappointed in the taste, but the dish wasn't appetizing. A bit carelessly assembled, I'd have to say. Restaurant is intimate and the view of the Plymouth harbor is, well you know how wonderful water scenes are. Coffee was extra flavorful. Waitress was friendly. Will... More

I've been to Carmen's Café Nicole a few times and ordered something different each time. They have a very different breakfast menu which is great when you are seeking a variety. I've had sausage and biscuits, the French toast, breakfast burrito, and the normal breakfast favorites. Each time everything was very fresh and delicious. The new location at Ellis Haven... More

Dropped into Carmen's Cafe Nicole last week for breakfast with my wife and (soon-to-be) 3 year old son.

My husband chose this spot. It is right across from the harbor, so the view is great! I ordered the kick starter wrap and it was healthy, good tasting, and filling. It came with delicious fruit too! My husband got something like a breakfast burrito. He liked it. The coffee was good and the mugs were cute. The service was... More

Took a Saturday trip to the Plymouth waterfront and found this nice little Breakfast / Lunch Café. I was looking for local catch fried fish and was not disappointed. Two very large pieces that were nicely cooked and very lite and fluffy. Great fries and onion rings. The onion rings were so good that I ordered an additional side. The... More

We stopped by one afternoon in August for lunch. There were eight in our party and there were plenty of empty tables available but it seemed that the fact that we had four children in our party was a problem for them.

You know we try very hard to give our customers complete satisfaction. There has never been a wait of 45 minutes and we certainly don't preference our locals as everyone would be welcome and equal.
