We came here for a Sunday lunch after viewing the Elephant Seals and overall really enjoyed the experience. We ordered two veggie burgers ($11.00 each) and one small bottle of mineral water ($1.00). Food tasted good and portions offered good value for money.

Stopped here for lunch before going to Hearst Castle.....good choice. The selection of lunch food is great. Nice sandwiches and salads with barbeque beef or chicken. Very casual. Beer and wine available at the attached tasting bar.
