So i agree with all the other reviewers, service is super slow. We stayed because people around us said the food was good -- that too was ok. Our food arrived kind of cold. They need more servers or at least someone helping them make the Lattes. first of all you have to wait to be seated which is ridiculous,... More

We discovered The Wild Plum earlier this week, the day before Thanksgiving. We went in for breakfast based on its serving mostly organic, local fare and on some great online reviews. We also were really appreciative of Chef/Owner Pamela Burns’ Mission Statement: At The Wild Plum everything is made with love and care. Our passion for food and sharing that... More

The Wild Plum is an excellent place to eat breakfast. We ate there a couple of days. The food was delicious and the portions left you full. Everything is focused on being organic. The service was very good. There's a Denny's right next door. While it's probably cheaper to eat at Denny's, Denny's can't match the quality of food being... More

Dropped in here for a quick coffee but then seeing the menu and some of the food being served decided to order some sandwichs to take on our drive around the peninsula. Good decision. Food was really good at a reasonable price. Service from the young waiter was helpful and friendly. Would go here again.

Food was tasty and there was a nice selection. We planned to take the food out to eat by the ocean and the prep time was very slow. Unfortunate, the swordfish was undercooked for my taste, even though I eat sashimi, however, when I called to ask about it being under cooked, they were very gracious to offer me to... More

I ate breakfast here on Saturday (10-11-14) a.m. before heading home. My wife and I ate here Sept. of 2013 and had great breakfast meals. Again, a very great meal to be had this trip down there. As always, they serve large portions at very good prices. There's nothing I would not recommend. The service is excellent and the interior... More

My family and I came here for breakfast at the glowing recommendation of Casa Munras, the hotel we were staying at. We didn't even solicit the advice of "where to eat" but the hotel employee gushed about their delicious, organic food, suggested we get the take-out from The Wild Plum and enjoy the scenic drive along the route that he...

This was a really great place to get lunch. It's around 10 minutes from the parking lot by fisherman's wharf, and serves huge portions of sandwiches and salads... The BLT and Greek salad were great! Staff were friendly, giving us good recommendations, and the price reasonable. Thank you :)
