Nepenthe

Another of our favorite spots when driving along the Big Sur coast is Nepenthe.

It’s usually busy, so we’ve only scored a table out on the view patio at left a few times. The cafe at right is easier when it’s open, and the patio tables with colorful umbrellas in the middle is where we usually find a spot unless inside by a window. On the ground, we’d never seen the part of the building to the left of that first patio. From the air we also see the buildings nearby, presumably residences for at least some of the great support staff.

Here’s a rather blurry view of the restaurant from a different angle.

It reminds me of delight at seeing planes go by from that deck below the patio as we enjoyed a delicious quiet meal and imagining ourselves up there was a garnish. Up here we can see that it’s actually quite a large community by Big Sur standards.
