Great place for breakfast, lunch, and evening dessert.

We were visiting from out of town and went for breakfast. This place was recommended by the front desk clerk where we were staying. It is fairly large but was crowded the first time we went there. The crowd looked like mostly locals which is usually a good sign. As you enter there is a case filled... read more

I hate when you are seated by the same person that gives you your water but does not take your order. He gave us our water and then every one forgot about us. CrabBenedict was good....so were the pancakes

Our food was very good, served hot and quickly. The waitress was quick with drink refills. The dessert display that greets you upon entering the restaurant is amazing. They look wonderful. We shared a slice of strawberry cake, which is HUGE! Very good, but HUGE. Beware...their menu states they have a "triple sampler" bite size portions. But it's misleading, it's... More

One of the dessert places in town. One can find street or lot parking close. We walked in and were seated immediately. Staff was rotated helping our table. We did not have to wait long between to get any service or help. Staff was friendly to help us to the case to make a decision. We elected to try the... More

I ate here with friends after the Big Sur Marathon. The ambiance was fun, the waitstaff were friendly and prompt, and the menu had lots of great choices. I really enjoyed my meal (clam chowder to start with lasagna for the entree). Just wish I had left room for dessert as the items in the display case looked marvelous. I... More

We spent some great time there during our vacation in California. My sister and I had pasta with seafood and my husband had a burger. The food was just delicious!!! They also had very good wine. Desserts are fantastic too but also very big (the three of us shared one cup of pudding in the end). Service was excellent. We'd... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at this place. After meals in San Francisco, Big Sur and surrounding areas, we felt this place offered a great value. The bread was fresh and our meals also included soup or salad. I ordered alfredo and my husband got the lasagna -- mine was good, but we both thought the lasagna was great. Our... More

Loved the menu options and the dessert bar is incredible. Everything looked so good it was hard to choose. I had the French Dip w/ mash potatoes and gravy and it was stellar. My daughters had the Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich and only wished for more Teriyaki but it was still delicious! I would highly recommend making sure you stop here... More
