More upscale - local family owns it. They have never disappointed. End of the driveway - take a left - it is half a block up, just before the gas station. Same side of the street as this house - an easy walk.

We all need a fix - There are two in walking distance. One inside Safeway (bottom of the driveway, turn left, across the street 1/2 a block - up). The second one is brand new (bottom of the driveway, turn right, across the street 1/2 a block down). But the Bagel Kitchen is locally owned and VERY good and they have specialty coffee too.

The perfect evening - appetizers and drinks by the firepits next to Roy's in the Spanish Bay resort, listen to the bagpiper at sunset then wander up the driveway to this little gem. Casual and delicious - tater tots - I will leave it there. OR they have wonderful firepits outside Sticks overlooking the golf course.

Parks & Nature

Beautiful drive. Take a map. Stop at any of the resorts for a meal or pick up a picnic lunch at the Market at the Lodge and enjoy at the beach. BEST KEPT SECRET - Stillwater Cove - park at the Beach Club near the Lodge (there is public parking near the Wharf) depending on the time of year you maybe the only one on the beach. Depending on the time of day and year the beach is amazing to walk. Sometimes in the winter, the tide is up and there is no beach.

Sightseeing

The perfect day trip - drive to Big Sur River Inn - dine in the restaurant on the river OR better yet, grab a burrito or sandwich from the shop to the left and head down to the grass. Sit in the sun and watch the river run by. OR they have chairs in the river. During the summer season, there is a bar down on the grass. Highly recommend the ginger cocktail.
