When driving up or down 101 between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, you must stop at The Cliff Side for a meal, a drink, a cup of coffee.
It won't be easy getting there if you are northbound due to construction and you have to go way past it and come back around, but it is a mandatory stop, even tho the inn itself certainly looks like it has seen better days........plus parking is awful.......but the view!!!
You dine and/or drink on a bluff in the middle of a curve of the Pacific Ocean, surrounded below by magnificent crashing waves, surfers and the biggest seagulls known to mankind, who frequently decide to do a few laps in the adjacent pool. It is breathtaking........and we ever had lunch.
We enjoyed some excellent fish and chips, homemade pineapple cole slaw and a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.
It is well worth the hassle of finding the place, getting into it from the highway and searching for a parking space.
