“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Terrific place to stop on your Highway 1 trip. The food was great, serving sizes were generous enough to share, service was quick (no waiting for tables), and, of course, the views are magnificent. Don't miss the Phoenix gift shop next level down, and take time to look at the patio of Nepenthe upstairs. Also enjoy the walks, plants and fountains around the grounds. Highly recommended.

“Nice for Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped here on a whim. Beautiful setting. Very busy. Was a bit unsure of the limited menu. If your really hungry go to the larger restaurant upstairs.

“Great outdoor breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Great outdoor space for breakfast overlooking the Big Sur coast - maybe even a little better vantage point than Nepenthe, located just above the cafe. We visited in late March after the rains and the coast line was very green. Raptors were circling overhead and there was a brilliant sun making the table umbrella almost a requirement.

The menu is pretty traditional with limited bakery/pastry choices and otherwise excellent savory choices such as scrambled eggs, hash browns, eggs Benedict, etc. Great brioche French toast. The brunch menu is served all day and includes lunch choices such as several sales and panini.

Waitstaff was very friendly and efficient, severing our order very quickly after being seated. There were multiple refills of coffee. No one was rushed and many table sat there for quite a long time enjoying the sun and views. Overall I think a better choice that Nepenthe, which is more expensive.
