Big Sur may seem like its attractions are few, but the scenery is really all you need. If you are going to stop for just one meal, its hard to argue against choosing Nepenthe. Edged with wrap-around bar that offers sweeping views of the trees and Pacific Ocean, its easy to lose track of the hours. I chose their infamous Ambrosia burger for lunch, paired with an IPA and triple berry pie for dessert. Every bite was delectable. Nepenthe also features Cafe Kevah for more casual dining as well as an extraordinary gift shop called The Phoenix. It was one of those "quick stops" that ends up as the highlight of the day (maybe even trip)!
