About Us

Café Carmel is more than a coffee shop. Much more. A family-owned and operated business, we offer a warm and welcoming place to gather.

Long-established in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Café Carmel serves baked goods, pastries, cookies, desserts and ice cream, and now also breakfast, lunch and brunch for outdoor dining and takeout.

In addition to our sweet treats, we prepare classic breakfast items such as eggs Benedict, sweet or savory French toast, housemade granola, quiche and breakfast burritos. For lunch, choose a delicious salad (such as Caesar or roasted beet), homemade soups, and crisp panini, as well as tuna salad, roast beef, smoked salmon, chicken salad and BLT sandwiches. Round off your meal with a delicious chocolate éclair, tiramisu or classic Napoleon pastry. For an added sweet treat, we serve Marianne’s ice-cream made in nearby Santa Cruz.

Join us at one of our four outdoor tables, seating up to 12 people, or order many of our menu items for takeout or delivery through DoorDash. Or while you are strolling around town grab an Illy coffee and pastry to-go.

Café Carmel is on the north side of Ocean Avenue between Mission and San Carlos Streets. Call (831) 624-3870 or visit to place an order for takeout.
