Really nice food prepared in a nice tasty way. Large menu, nice staff and nice view of ocean. Pasta was delicious with huge scallops and shrimp. Nice wine, fair price. Just minutes from the Hearst Castle and 10 minutes from Cambria. Great spot.

The food and service was good. Prices are typical for the area. About $50 for 2 people. Try the clam chowder and the Cavalier sandwich. Yummm.

Do not be fooled by simple appearances, this restaurant serves delicious food. I went for brunch and ordered huevos rancheros, the best ever, the waitress even commented she loved the dish, I overheard lots of raving remarks and happy customers

The food wasn't bad, but neither was it worth what we had to pay. Even for a resort community such as San Simeon, $15.00 for a burger and iced tea seems a bit excessive for a motel coffee shop, regardless of what they choose to...More

My impression is that this is a nice looking coffee shop that exists to serve the guests of the attached motel. We came here for lunch and, while not overwhelmed, were satisfied with our meals. We had the Pacific snapper (small but tasted fresh), the...More

My eggs were ordered over medium and served crispy outside, my homemade beef hash was full of gristle, thus mostly not edible. The potatoes were very good, but I was disappointed that the other items were not. I would not eat here again.

Perhaps because we went with low expectations after reading some of the mixed reviews, we were genuinely surprised. Four stars instead of five for their being slightly slow and for the limited drinks menu. Those aside, service was cheerful and welcoming. The 1/3lb grass fed...More

IMO, service was slow and part of my food "forgotten" - should I forget the tip? Stayed at the motel next door, would have loved this place to be better. Would not go back.

We had liquor
Hi, we will be traveling through San Simeon, unfortunately for only one night. The good thing is it happens to be Thanksgiving. Do you need to be staying at the hotel to book dinner at the restaurant. Can you please advise me what special dinner or night we might expect on Thanksgiving. There will be 7 of us.
