A month ago I had a chance to see what's new on Fisherman's Wharf and checked out Water and Leaves for a morning coffee. https://www.chowhound.com/post/carmel... Offering a modern and contemporary interior and striking water views, this coffee and tea cafe uses Wrecking Ball coffee from San Francisco.
My cortado was a record-breaking $4.25, and unbearably bitter. I suspect that the water temperature is too hot here extracting bad stuff. While there's a big display of local honey, none are available to use in the beverages. Instead I added some white sugar to tone down the roughness on this cup.
