We came here on the recommendation of someone in California in a starbucks coffee shop! We were not disappointed. A beautiful location and set in fantastic woods. The river runs at the bottom of the garden and you can even sit with your feet in the river whilst having your coffee. We come for breakfast and have to say it was worth the drive. HUGE portions of food. Good vegetarian options and a keenness to make sure my vegetarian diet was well met. Great service. What more can I say!

We had breakfast here and be careful it's a lot of food...you'll need the hike to work it off. Dinner was good and hearty as well.

We stopped here on our last night in big sur! The service was friendly and quick and the menu was full of choice ! We both had really enjoyable meals ! It’s a lot more relaxed than some of the quaint places in big sur but just as good! A really nice evening

I was staying here a couple of days and went early one morning for breakfast. It was chilly out and I sat by the fireplace. Service was friendly and prompt. The breakfast was wonderful, tasted great and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It turned out to be one of the best meals I had on my trip.

We ate here for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was just average, but the breakfast was wonderful! Sit outside if possible.
