Darling wine area and hopefully they'll get their license for more area to take wine outside. They do have some spots for wine outdoors. Yummy burgers and beautiful views outside. Very helpful staff even when their credit card machine went down. Would definitely go again.

Sebastian's cafe is a regular stop during our visit to the Central Coast. Nice patio area to enjoy your meal. You will not be disapointed with the burgers and fries. Opportunity to also enjoy local wine with your lunch.

This is a perfect spot for lunch either before or after a tour of Hearst Castle. The BBQ chicken salad is not to be missed.
