We decided to meet some friends downtown at this coffee shop
and when we arrived the young lady was behind the counter on her iphone
and said she would be right with us,after a couple of minutes we left and found another coffee shop a little further.
Service should always be number 1
we did not go back.
We arrived down town Carmel to visit some friends we met at this place in the little patio ,The girl was talking to someone on her IPhone.
The call seemed to be more important than serving someone waiting in line for coffee being told i will be right with you we left and went farther down the street.
We wont come back again.
Talk about the one who made you forget your first true love....
I was a Starbucks fan for years. I always stay in Carmel during the Jazz Festival, and of course Carmel will brook no chains. Craving coffee, we found Cafe Cardinale simply by following our noses down the street. CC roasts their own coffee and has a goodly number of traditional roasts and blends. I had never tasted anything as good as their Kona or Sunrise blend, and haven't since (it's been years!) The coffee is so good, in fact, that I've been mail-ordering it whenever I run out of company coffee (it is on the pricey side, but well worth it, and I generally reserve it for guests and when I feel as though I've earned the right to drink a cup.) Roast it again, CC!
