On the lookout for a quick breakfast before heading home from our Carmel getaway, we stepped into Friar Tucks. We were greeted by an adorable grandfatherly gentleman who was so friendly and welcoming, I would have been willing to forgive poor food. Luckily I didn't...More

The website said 'open at 8am', we got there at 8:20 and the sign on the door was changed to 9am. We were very disappointed!
