menu. Carmel Cafe has everything from steak frites to braised short ribs to seared Atlantic scallops. The most expensive entree on the menu is a large serving of Lamb Lollipops, which will set you back $22.99. PS - I love when restaurants do large and small portions! I am such a light eater that this works out very well in my favor.The decor of Carmel Cafe is very warm, modern and open.
Their wine list is excellent, letting you choose between a 3oz, 6oz, 9oz or bottle which I feel is great for both wino's and beginner wine drinkers. Carmel also offers informal wine tastings, visit their calendar to see what they have coming up. Eventually, the South Tampa location will have brunch. You can enjoy a great inexpensive meal, get good wine and drinks while hanging out with friends.
We started off with a Sangria French Press! How genius is this? Gabe loved it. He raved on and on about how it was better than the Columbia's sangria. I have to agree that it was one of the top Sangria's in the Tampa area.

I think I'm in love with the Braised Short Rib flatbread. It had fontina cheese, arugula and a mission fig marmalade. I would have ate the whole thing to myself if it weren't for us sharing a table with other foodies.
