Breakfast & Coffee in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Wake up with sunshine in the sky and gentle ocean breezes, and indulge in a hearty breakfast to fuel you for whatever the day has in store. At our on-site California Market at Pacific’s Edge, breakfast is served in a casual setting, with abundantly flowing coffee and fresh fruit providing the spark for your day.

Or venture out and explore the myriad of choices in this lovely seaside town. A line of hungry diners is a good sign at From Scratch Restaurant, a popular eatery with both locals and tourists alike. Fresh and hot, the raspberry jam and cheddar biscuits are a must-try.

Discover cute little French-inspired cafés and bistros, like Lafayette Bakery, where luscious crepes vie with the homemade French toast for breakfast supremacy, and the coffee is strong and satisfying.

Proudly serving only the freshest ingredients from local farms and purveyors that practice sustainability, Carmel Belle is a laid-back, pet-friendly eatery with excellent cappuccino. And Katy’s Place also takes pride in health-friendly options, a local gem with flavorful gluten-free pancakes, best enjoyed with views from the deck.

Friar Tuck’s Restaurant has the biggest breakfasts in Carmel, while Little Swiss Café is the place the locals go any time of day for a low-key breakfast. The ultra-thin pancakes are an unexpected treat and the omelets are hearty enough to keep you going all day.

Coffee lovers are spoiled for choice when it comes to a cup of java. Indulge in a cup of freshly brewed coffee from Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting Co., where they roast their own beans and serve up piping hot coffee in a charming, old-world style building.

Whether enjoying a delicious breakfast while taking in dramatic views of the Pacific, or exploring quaint and quirky hot spots around town, when you stay with us at our Hyatt Residence Club Carmel, Highlands Inn, your day always begins on a high note.
