“My new favorite restaurant is San Luis Obispo’s Big Sky Cafe. Try the Greek fava bean dip, and the white bean and tuna salad. Big Sky is unpretentious, happy to be a local joint with stellar food.”

QUOTED

“Big Sky Cafe is a hip, bustling cafe known for treats such as Central Coast wines… Yet unlike similar restaurants found in the big city, kids are welcomed with their own menu and crayons”

Los Angeles Times Calendar

“… That evening, I went to a restaurant that alone makes the drive from Los Angeles worthwhile: The Big Sky Cafe.

The decor is ’60s-hippie morphed into contemporary Southwest. Tie-dyed tapestries and brilliant desert landscape paintings line the walls of a busy dining room adjacent to a long hardwood bar. I sat at the bar, rather than wait a half hour for a single table.

I asked the bartender about a couple of local wines on the menu and he gave me a taste of each. I picked a glass of Justin Winery’s Epoch Zinfandel, a hearty wine generously poured into a large wine goblet.

The Big Sky menu is filled with unique combinations of foods and spices, with much of it devoted to vegetarian dishes. The bartender suggested the evening’s special — broiled salmon served with Israeli couscous and chardonnay-marinated kale. I chose Vietnamese ginger squash soup to go with it.

The meal was delicious. The salmon had been broiled with a thyme sauce and the kale was tender with the bitterness cut by the chardonnay. I told the bartender I’d like a light dessert, and he recommended the mango-lime pie topped with cabernet coulis-soaked raspberries. It was excellent.

The entire meal, with the wine and dessert, came to $21. …”
