A Carmel Must-Visit: Casanova

Casanova looks and feels like a small country inn in Italy or France.

I imagine that the food tastes a bit like the food in such a place, too.

Good service was a running theme during our Carmel visit. Casanova was no different. We felt like revered guests of this country inn.

I had one of the best cups of hot chocolate I've ever had.

It literally came on a silver platter. I may have applauded when it arrived.

Crepes campagnardes -- roasted chicken, mushrooms, light creamy veloute, mixed greens ($12.75).

Completely unfussy and exquisite.

Side of fries ($4.00).

Awesome awesome awesome. How could fries be so awesome?

Side of chicken apple sausage ($4.00).

Plump and juicy and meaty. That's what she said.

Belgian waffles, organic apricot sauce, fresh berries, fresh whipped cream ($10.75).

Crisp, light, and fluffy all at the same time. That's no easy feat.

One highlight of Casanova is the Van Gogh table.

You can actually dine at a table upon which Vincent Van Gogh had his meals.

Casanova has many interesting rooms.
