Pink and fairytale like- this restaurant is perfect for girls who enjoy princesses and their palaces. Had the lemon cake which was huge and sweet. Again good for children.

The atmosphere and the service make this a MUST SEE place when on the Calif. Central Coast. Not only is the café / restaurant a MUST SEE but the Madonna Inn itself is awesome.
