This guy is in the right business. Friendly, great coffee, excellent menu. Will go back absolutely. The views out back are ridiculous. And that combined with the quality of coffee (and food) makes this my favorite cup of Joe while in Big Sur.

Stopped here for a quick bite before heading North, this roadhouse looks very neat: a fireplace is installed and several lounge sets are available to relax on. The breakfast we had was good as well, but very - very - expensive.

Perfect blend of warm and cosy but open and airy so you get the view of true California all around. Quick service of food, laid back music. This is a must stop! Plenty of easy parking and fabulous outdoor seating options.

We pulled in here for a coffee on our PCH drive. It was a very foggy day with low visibility, but when we stopped here, we found ourselves in a different microclimate, with no fog. Was great to see the blue sky and sunshine! We...More

Very new and attractive decor. Lovely outdoor seating with fire pits. I had the pesto mushroom omelet which may have been the best omelet I’ve ever eaten. You order at the counter and if you’re not staying in the Glen Oaks (?) hotel, the kitchen...More

We came here for breakfast every day because we were staying at Glen Oaks, and we loved the food and the beautiful surroundings. We had donuts, avocado toast, and huevos rancheros (our favorite!). It’s in a beautiful location and you can sit on the back...More
