Quaint Resaurant in Big Sur

We stopped to eat at the Ripplewood on our drive from Santa Cruz to San Simieon and we were so glad we did! The food was outstanding and the garden patio was even better. It is a beautiful oasis. I wish we could have stayed in one of the cottages. It is a beautiful little place.

Needed a hearty breakfast before hiking and this was the place. Great size portions and realty fresh and well prepared. Wish I could go back. Loved the Breakfast Burrito. Excellent coffee too.

It's only open for breakfast & lunch and not fancy, but the food, service and atmosphere were great.

This little restaurant serves delicious breakfast and lunch food. (They close at 2:00PM) The restaurant is rustic, and in the spring and summer there is a beautiful little courtyard with tables for meal service. The menu has a variety of selections including lovely looking pancakes, french toast,omelets, fresh fruit, yogurt and granola, etc. (There are lunch selections as well.) I... More

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Morro Bay. We were just in time as they close at 2 PM. We ordered some enchilladas, potato soup and some other food. They were just superb, especially the soup. The service was quick and efficient. A great stop on a wonderful drive.

I liked the menu, the food was excellent and the service was terrific. It is across Hwy.1 from the cabins. Very convenient.

Great food and service. Came on Christmas morning and was happily surprised with the great food and service. They put a spin on my eggs Benedict that was wonderful. Would highly recommend it

This homey cafe quickly became our favourite place to eat. The staff are wonderfully helpful and warm. The food was incredibly delicious. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and the prices were great! Imagine!! Tasty, friendly, spotless and didn't blow the budget. We love the Ripplewood Cafe!!

I would have booked elsewhere if I had known there was construction work right on the other side of our cabin across the river. I would not recommend until construction is done!

My wife and I were staying in a cabin nearby and decided to try this multi-use kind of place that also had cabins, gas station, small grocery, and this great restaurant. She had a burrito and I had two enchiladas. They were all very tasty. We took a turkey on rye sandwich with salad back to our cabin for a... More
