Totally enjoyed the food and the experience. A family favorite when they are visiting. Off season is best for viewing and comfortable driving on Highway 1.

What a perfect place to stop for brunch while enjoying stops along Big Sur. Lunch choices include a variety of sandwiches and salads. All are fresh, tasty and large enough for most people to share. The views are amazing. Seating can be inside or outside....More
