We were in Carmel for Thanksgiving, Our research told us that Baum & Blume served Thanksgiving dinner in a pick-up/catering fashion. We made our reservation and then picked up our meals around 5pm.

Apparently, they do this each Thanksgiving. They cook anywhere from full Thanksgiving meals with large turkeys and all the sides to smaller portions (as in our case). The food was delicious and gave us the traditional meal without having to cook or sit in a restaurant. The only minor wish we had was for some cranberries (for one of us, at least - the other was glad not to have it).

The owners were very gracious and the staff was polite and very helpful. We definitely plan on dining here in the future.

We were staying at a house in Carmel Valley and did not feel like sitting in a restaurant. We were able to get a complete dinner at a reasonable price here and heat it up in the microwave. The food was cooked from scratch and was delicious. We had enchiladas, which came with a side of green beans and soup. There was plenty to eat for the two of us.

Food was quite good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sit in the beer garden if you can and enjoy the blue jays.

I have discovered the most charming café. Baum and Blume & The Carriage House is located in Carmel Valley Village, just off of Carmel Valley Rd at 4 El Caminito Rd. The Cafe is open Monday through Saturday offering a lunch and dinner menu with a waffle breakfast on Saturdays. The menu changes weekly and each Saturday, they offer 2 different flavor waffles. Their cuisine is absolutely amazing.

Recently, I had the pleasure of joining 12 library staff for a last minute birthday breakfast celebration. The owners accommodated us by opening early and preparing a special menu. The breakfast menu consisted of 3 delectable gourmet options (Avocado Huevos Rancheros, Orange-scented Belgian Waffle with Blueberries and Citrus Cream and Warm Soufflé Egg Roulade) and the service was impeccable. As a special treat, Baum and Blume surprised us birthday girls with a gourmet truffle for dessert.

The library staff left the Café feeling happy and content with a shared enthusiasm, anticipating the next quarterly birthday celebration.

A small gem of a place. Hand-picked well thought-out store and handcrafted food offer so much to look forward to as you drive into Carmel Valley Village (yes, there is such a thing.)

There is a beautiful outside seating if the weather is good, and the holiday mailer they send out is a lot of fun. This is a family owned place and they put a lot of effort into everything they do.

Price is not unreasonable considering the remote location and given that they cook everything from scratch on-site. Given the quality, care and attention, they are down right well priced. The open house is always fun and a foodie love affair.
Be prepared to stick around for your next round of hors d'oeuvres and their recounting of trips and food.

Their expertise on food shows at every turn. Whatever is on the special, get it!!

There is a big growth of cactus by the parking, so watch your kids!

Ladies, say hi to Derek if he is minding the store when you go there. He is really nice.
