How do you like your apple pie empanadas?

Apple Pie Empanadas!

We offer them with powdered sugar as shown, or drizzled with Crème Anglaise or chocolate syrup. Some people like them plain, some take them with maple syrup!

Apple pie empanadas, made the way you like them. Hurry up, we don’t have many left!

Blueberries Are In!

The winter season for blueberries is upon us, and they are fantastic! These are the tastiest blueberries you will ever have, and ripe and juicy.

When Carmen makes blueberry pancakes, it’s like she has a contest with herself to see how many she can cram into a single flapjack. I’m a blueberry pancake fanatic, and these are the best I’ve ever had.

Zoey Loves Chocolate

Zoe just had a generous serving of sweetheart pancakes, dressed with fresh-made crème Anglaise and chocolate sauce.

She watched us last night cooking the sauces— You can see she loves the chocolate sauce best of all!

The Great Parsley Giveaway

We just got done going around at the restaurant giving everybody a free bunch of parsley.

Why? We lucked into a great deal on a case of parsley, and wanted to share it with our friends. Come on in and grab a bunch!

Mint Julep Comes To Carmen’s

Minty and refreshing— ’nuff said!

Special at Carmen’s this weekend

Flying Out The Door

Who doesn’t like fresh hot cornbread on a cold winters’ day?

We figured a lot of people would order cornbread with their meals. But what took us by surprise is how many folks ask for a warm slice to go!

We make it both ways, but the hands down winner is the chili cornbread, warmer yet from chopped chili peppers giving it just enough tang to tickle the tongue.

Waiting for you now at Carmen’s!

Party Hearty!

It’s hard to believe that in a few short minutes this place will be Party Central. But Carmen’s annual holiday potluck starts at 5 PM— And we will be packed!
