On our recent trip to Monterey Peninsula, we discovered this wonderful little restaurant, Cafe Stravaganza. We had three breakfasts and one dinner here: service is excellent, food delicious and ambiance warm and welcoming.

This cafe is located at the end of a shopping centre. We stopped for the lunch and i had the lamb burger which was very juicy. The staff were very friendly. Has a wide and varied menu and is brightly decorated.

I have always had great food and service at this Café. The menu is very large, the food is primarily Mediterranean., and the service is always good. Quirky atmosphere, good value Would definitely recommend..nice beverage menu as well.

Service slow even though there were only two other couples in restaurant. Overpriced breakfast for what you get. Server was friendly but only refilled our coffee when we got his attention.

We were looking to grab a quick bite and pulled into this place. Very family friendly and eclectic. We split a delicious BLT and the service was super fast and very friendly.

Off the beaten track Cafe Stravaganza as a very eclectic menu, offering something for every taste, and does a good job with all of it. Moderately priced for Carmel.
