Dolores St, Carmel, CA, United States
The Tuck Box is an English-style tearoom housed in a storybook cottage that oozes charm with its striped awning, curved roof, and diminutive size. It also oozes flavor, with the best buttery scones in town (especially when slathered in olallieberry jam) and a tantalizing menu of eggs benedict variations. Seating is limited and service is slow, so bring your patience along with your appetite… and some cash as well, since they don't accept credit cards. You'll be glad you did – after such a delicious breakfast, you'll feel like the viceroy of the shire.
