Stopped into the gallery during a weekend trip to Big Sur. It's a beautiful little gallery on the coast. It also has a little cafe with some great views.
We started by spending most of a week in the peninsula of California. We traveled by plane to Mexico, bussed across the peninsula and spent 4 - 5 days watching the whales and touching them in a small boat. They wanted to be rubbed as it was mating season and they were looking for companionship! To not disturb them too... More
Any drive along the Big Sur Coast is special beyond words. But stopping to enjoy the beautiful sights, perfect ocean views and delicious food at Coast Gallery & Coast Cafe puts the entire experience over the top!

Had lunch here...basically give your order at the counter, pick out your drink, and go find a table on the patio that overlooks the Pacific Coast Highway and Big Sur.

The gallery is certainly worth perusing. I bought beautiful seashell candles that everyone adored. The food is fresh and wonderful and the staff is friendly.
