An amazing brunch with exquisite white sangria! French classics like onion soup and a very fine scallop meet modern deep-fried Oreos & a chocolate foam of a mousse for dessert. My favorite garden, personally!

River Safety

Oh the Carmel River is glorious in any season! The river house is almost on top of the local swimming hole so in summer, please bring water shoes to keep away any sharp rocks. Follow the rock path left of the river for about 5 minutes & take the leap into the Bucket! (Or just wade & lay on the sandy beach)
