Oh for the Love of Art (and Food)!

Big Sur Coast Gallery & Café is nestled against the breathtaking windy road of Highway 1. It is a destination not to be missed if you are a peckish art lover. The building has a funky design consisting of recycled redwood water tanks, and it all overlooks the ocean breathtaking sea views.

Situated upstairs, the restaurant offers only organic ingredients and dishes are determined by the seasons. The restaurant operates under Chef Matthew Farmer's creative hands as he transforms these local ingredients into something extraordinary. Bite into Big Sur which is juicy roasted turkey and creamy avocado paired with jalapeño jelly and pimento aioli between slices of warm crusty ciabatta. Or order Bixby which is a tasty combination of roasted potatoes, marinated artichokes and roasted peppers in a wheat tortilla encasing topped with a tangy hummus dressing. For meat lovers, the robust Mill Creek enchiladas with luscious slow-roasted pork shoulder will satisfy your palate. Dog lovers may rejoice upon knowing that the gallery including the café is dog-friendly. Water bowls and treats are provided to your furry companions so they'd feel welcome.
