Lunch between Cambria and Big Sur?

We're driving up the Coast this week and could use some suggestions? Thanks.

    1. You should probably plan to stop in either Cambria or Big Sur, instead of somewhere in between. There have been a lot of recent threads with suggestions in both places. If you can make it there, I'd probably suggest Nepenthe in Big Sur. Even if you're driving through, don't miss the Julia Pfeiffer Burns waterfall overlook - there's a nice spot for a picnic there just a short walk from the highway.

      1. Not really anything between Cambria and Big Sur...there is Ragged Point about 20-30 minutes north of Cambria, but nothing special there to eat. Stop for the magnificent view at Ragged Point and eat either in Cambria or Big Sur. Have fun!
