We had a good basic dinner at this restaurant. The food and service were both good. We ordered portabella mushroom burgers, beef burgers and sweet potato fries.

Took a road trip from San Francisco down through Big Sur for the views. We were NOT disappointed! There's several places along the drive to pull over and take photos. It was very relaxing & breathtaking. Would do it regularly if I lived closer!

Stumbled upon this awesomeness as we took an impromptu drive with the family post-Christmas. It was for sale when we stopped, but I believe it is still open, or cafe opening soon. Cafe was incredible when we were there, as were the views, the gallery,...More
