“The hamburgers are great.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

You are going to have to wait because this is one of the few places to eat around Hearst castle. It is worth it. All the food was great and there was a lot of it.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This is THE best French Dip sandwich I have ever had! The au jus was AMAZING. It was all very enjoyable, a tiny place, but so much fun!

“Great sandwiches!”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

By far the fattest sandwich I have ever had! And one of the best. Kind of hard to eat but so worth it. Very quaint little store, had lunch and a glass of wine from the Hearst Winery. Would definitely make a point to go again if we are in the area. I had the Big Sur veggie sandwich and my husband had a beef sandwich.

“Fantastic Sandwiches!!!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Fantastic roast beef sandwich and black bean sandwich. We ordered them deluxe style which came with a wheat bun and more veggies. Nice fresh vegetables...avocado, sprouts, lettuce, tomato....very thick sandwiches. The sandwiches are huge.....we each took 1/2 of our sandwich home.

Nice old style market. Be prepared to wait in line and wait for your order to be prepared in the busy season. But you can relax and chill out in the nice surrounding environment that has picnic tables beyond the cafe seating area. Just plan for it. We had no wait to order as we were there on a rainy type day and out of season. It's well worth it! Also, there's great wine tasting in the same building at Hearst Winery.

“Large portions!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Great food and lots of it, you likely don't need to order as much as you think! Fantastic burgers, buns and fries. We sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon.
