Based on reviews on tripadvisor, visited big sky cafe. Food was good, but was disappointed with long wait for food. We had to wait for around 45 mins for food to arrive and our kid slept meanwhile we we were waiting.

We were disappointed in our experience. The café was recommended by a couple locals and trip advisor has it rated highly. Maybe our expectations were too high. Food is locally sourced and sustainable, menu choices are good. Food was good, just not great. Ambiance is lacking and service was slow even though we beat any rush.

My family of 6 ate here for lunch when we were traveling north from Anaheim in California. We had a late breakfast/early lunch and it was wonderful. Some of us had breakfast and some lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The price was reasonable and the restaurant is themed very well. We loved our waiter Pedro and want to thank him... More

I was looking for a great place to dine after a long drive in traffic from LA. This place definitely hit the spot. It was so good, we ate here twice. The catfish and turkey burger are truly wonderful and there are plenty of vegan/vegetarian options, as well.

I get the feeling that Big Sky is just an anti-institutional type of place. But they have become one in SLO. For that "special breakfast" with out of town guests or business or just to enjoy yourself at the beautiful counter this is a can't miss place. Never been there for lunch or dinner. Too many other choices. But for... More

This is a popular place for all ages and it is easy to see why. The food is delicious and the service is friendly. We each had a salad entree and it was great. Just what we wanted. Have been here many times and always keep coming back.

Good food, good vibe, reasonable prices. A quick trip to The Old Country! Location is changing from current downtown address but still in the cozy center of San Luis Obispo!
