The restaurant is aesthetically pleasing. It has a nice rustic yet comfortable feel. We went in the late afternoon and the service was wonderful. I had a wine margarita and I must tell you it was better then the tequila ones I've had elsewhere. I ordered two fish soft tacos. They were so large I had to share one with... More

I found this restaurant by googling healthy restaurants in SLO and wasn't disappointed. We went at lunchtime, sat at the bar and had friendly, fast, helpful service. The menu offered a large selection and the food was fresh, flavorful and plentiful. I had the Farmers Market Vegetable Plate with organic chicken and my husband had the organic, grass-fed burger both... More

Good fresh food and excellent granola. I use soy milk in my coffee and enjoyed the soy that they used. The homemade apricot jam was very, very nice!

Food was excellent, but the flies were a little overwhelming at times! Service was impeccable! I would recommend going later in the afternoon...

This cafe was listed in my California Rough Guide book and so far this holiday if has been spot on. This town has a really great vibe and the Big Sky Cafe fits in perfectly - right in the middle of town. The service was perfect - the food arrived without a long wait, was very tasty with good sized... More

We can always count one having a great meal at Big Sky. The food is fresh, locally sourced and healthy. The presentations are always great, the wine is reasonably priced with lots of local wines featured. We have been coming here as long as they have been open in SLO and never disappointed. Lunch, breakfast, brunch, dinner always a good... More

Stopped midmorning on a Sunday with a group of 4 and we were so glad we did! I had the Crab Cakes and Spinach Benedict and it was excellent - a huge portion that I couldn't begin to finish. My companions had the pancakes and egg & bacon breakfast and everyone was very happy with their choices. Lovely little corn... More

This is for anyone who loves healthy eating. We had the salads and they were outstanding. They serve little corn muffins to start. We had the chicken Caesar and chicken caprese salads – awesome - baby spinach and lettuce hearts with fresh ingredients. Waitress Kristiana was excellent. Atmosphere and décor relaxing. Definitely would go back.

Big Sky offers the very best food. Fresh local produce, great attention to flavor. The lobster mac & cheese always a favorite. Vegan, vegetarian or meat lovers will all find fabulous dishes. Breakfast is amazingly good be neys (sp), home made rolls, oatmeal and eggs. You will not be disappointed with any meal any time of day.
