Had some of the best eggs Benedict here. Service was fine. Ambiance was quaint. Prices were as expected in that area. We would go back.

We stopped here whilst driving the Big Sur initially just for a drink. It's not much to look at from outside but there is a lovely patio area at the side of the restaurant.

Service was ok. The little cups of half-n-half was perhaps sitting out too long. When I added it to my coffee, bits of curdled milk floated to the top. I had the Benedict.

This is our other favorite place in Big Sur for breakfast. It's easy to miss if you're zooming by on Highway 1. There are a couple gas pumps out front and it shares its building with a funky camp store, and it's easy to miss the restaurant. But give it a try. There is dining inside in a homey, knotty... More

We ate breakfast at the Ripplewood Resort Restaurant all 3 mornings we were in Big Sur. Nice, pleasant space. Excellent service. Good food, not greasy. Fresh ingredients. Great coffee. I recommend for breakfast but did not eat lunch there. Based on their breakfasts am sure there lunches are good too.

A good spot which is a quick hike from the cabins for a hearty breakfast or lunch. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was nice and tidy.

We ate their every morning of our photo workshop to Big Sur. The breakfast was well made. The "Big Sur' and "Little Sur" was great. The staff was attentive and the food was quick. One bathroom out back. Clean and friendly place for breakfast!
