The food, festivities, boutique and folks are always delightful at this very creative and deightful establishment. In my 10 years of selecting some gourmet take-out at the end of a day , attending their special events (dinners, St. Patrick Day's luncheon with guests, an annual Holiday venue) or stepping into the Carriage House for a gift, card or plant, I've been extremely pleased with Baum & Blume fare. Everyone listens to what you may like and suggests how your appetite or interests may best be met. For visitors, it's a real find in between wine tasting or a special event, whlie for locals like me, it's so easy to swing by after a postal run and check out the displayed menu on El Caminito or their website to see the generous extent of their daily offerings. As caterers, B&B selections are clients consider them must have and top-notch! They are an active, welcome presence to Monterey Penisula food affairs and charitable venues, where their presentations and energies are distinctively in the top of the class with their freshness and welcomed flourishes. Go discover and return again to enjoy Baum & Blume's unique offerings. (And The Carriage House, too!).

This sweet little place on a side street off of Carmel Valley Road is so unpretentious you might drive right past it -- and never have a quintessential Carmel Valley dining experience.,,,, But no! Don't miss it -- map it, and go.
When you arrive, ask for a shady table on the tiny grassy patio ... ask for the wine of your choice from fine local vineyards ... and sit back for a relaxing luncheon. The owners are friendly and extremely knowledgeable about gourmet foods; they travel to France every year to learn more about what's being served in the land where God goes to dine. Whether you want locally grown fresh produce, naturally raised meat dishes, or just a nice little plate of carefully selected cheeses and fruit, accompanied by some fine bread and that wine you're sipping -- you'll enjoy whatever you choose from the fairly limited but wisely composed menu of the day. I wish they served dinners, but currently it's just lunch and afternoon snacks with tea; however you can order take-out, for an al-fresco supper at your chosen Carmel Valley hostelry.

B&B has a gourmet take-out, a boutique, and a small cafe to eat in if you choose. The owners (D&J Wenzler) are friendly and the food is excellent!
