Champagne Bakery, located in Carmel Mountain next to the Ralphs and McDonalds is a really cute cafe to go for a nice informal, but pleasant lunch. There's indoor and outdoor seating that patrons can enjoy and the food is delicious. It servces breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Its meals are usually displayed in a glass case so you can see the portions and what the food looks there. The dessert here is to die for because there's tons of chocolate cakes, pastries, and pies. The French atmosphere woudln't be complete without some baguette and some of their best items on the menu would be the sandwiches that are made from baguette. Soups and salads are my personal favorite. But you pay up front, therefore reducing the hassle of having to split the bill if you're dining with friends. It's yummy and cute!
