This is my second time here, and I just can't get enough. The locally sourced food is so fresh, delicious, and well-prepared. There truly is something for everyone here, and there really is heart to this place. The service is sometimes spotty, which is why I had to refrain from giving it a 5. The grilled artichoke was the best... More

Big Sky has it all! The most diverse menus in SLO, great coffee and beignets and wonderful servers. The Blue Crab cakes on the lunch Menge are the best that I have had outside Baltimore.

I've eaten here previously and definitely wanted to return. Some of the selections are unusual and quite fantastic. If you want a very reasonably price meal with some different food selections, Big Sky Cafe is the place to visit in SLO.

FIrst time for breakfast at Big Sky, have previously eaten at the restaurant in the evening. The food was delicious, we had various selections from the menu, omelet, turkey scramble and pancakes, all of which were delicious. Lots of coffee and water to wash it all down. We were seated promptly, and well looked after by our waitress, even though... More

...and probably other times of day as well. Nice to be back for a weekend breakfast after a long hiatus. I had the amazing Shakshouka -- the Tunisian dish avail only at weekend. My mate had the egg special which was kind of a crustless flavorful quiche. Our server Bob, though a newbie on staff, provided nicely attentive service. This... More

Went in for an early dinner and asked if we could split a ciopinio. It was no problem, but still a lot of food. It was very tasty! We had planned on having dessert, but were too full--will have to go back for that. Our waiter was very good, and we liked the atmosphere

Most sumptuous bagel, cream cheese, lox, freshest-ever thick juicy tomato slice. Fresh squeezed apple juice. Great way to start the day!

We have been here several times for different meals of the day but have sort of just stopped going as we realized the items on the menu sound really delicious but end up just being eh. The cornbread muffins are yum and a good way to start any meal but then the meals have either been dry, lacking flavor or... More

I wanted a light dinner and had the gumbo. It didn't have the rich flavours I was expecting. However the menu was extensive and provided a good choice.

Thank wt930
