“Great coffee - laid back service”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Always on the lookout for a decent cup of coffee in the US, we found Big Sky on our walk through Main St SLO. So good to get our coffee served in a real china cup! Nice fresh muffins, served on a plate and with a real knife, not plastic. Seriously, Big Sky is catering to the student and academic population in this town and are doing a good job. Why do Americans put up with anything less? Would go back for the coffee anytime.

“Nice restaurant but disappointing food”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I've eaten at Big Sky many times in the my many travels here in SLO. This past week I ordered a special salad entree of the day. It was drenched in dressing and the lamb skewer was grossly over cooked. The combination of the ingredients just didn't really work together, so I left hungry and disappointed with the quality of food. The service is good, the wine list is impressive, but the food was not high on my list of choices in the future.

“Great lunch & breakfast”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

My husband's omelet and potatoes was exceptional and unusual. I had a shrimp Caesar & it was good, dressing could use a bit more garlic. The waitstaff were very attentive!

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Thick sliced bacon was best ever. Thoroughly enjoyed Devil's Mess scramble. Went on a weekday morning and looked very popular with locals.
