The view from Cafe Kevah is a 10. Literally, your moth will fall open when you see it for the first time. There are not enough adjectives to describe the coast in the morning with low fog and the brilliant sun above. Stunning. The food was very good - pricey, but very good. A nice assortment of breakfast choices, huge pastries/sweets, and bottomless coffee mugs make this the best breakfast choice in the area.

We stopped here on recommendation from a garage attendant in Carmel - as we stepped out on the patio WOW what a location the view is breath taking! The café is self service, the staff friendly and happy to patiently describe the baked goods - our choice a cream cheese filled blueberry moon cake so delicious I had to tweet a picture of it!
We enjoyed the stunning view, warm sun and humming birds on a too brief visit to this delightful place its a must visit if driving the Big Sur.

If you don't have the time or the budget for Nepenthe, then plan to at least have brunch or a snack at Cafe Kevah while driving through Big Sur. The food is good but the setting is--well, let's just say all the superlatives apply.

Brunch with a view. it was really a wonderful experience. Excellent food and gorgeous view.It is a self service model which seemed odd in such a setting.

We stopped briefly to have an early lunch and the food was very nice. It's much cheaper than eating in the famous restaurant above, but the views are much the same! There can be queues but go after breakfast and before lunch & it's not too bad.
