Nepenthe: Amazing lunch with an ocean view in Big Sur, CA
Ambrosia Burger. The ambrosia burger is a ground steak sandwich served on the finest french rolls I have ever eaten. The burger is rich and packed with flavor and the roll is perfectly dense. I will never order anything else from there. You will see in our photos that depending on the day, the fog has not always rolled out by lunchtime. The first time we visited it was quite foggy (which offers its own magic) and we barely got a peek of the ocean. The second time we were heading south to see the McWay Falls and stopped in as a surprise for our out-of-town guests. It was like the skies knew they owed us one. It was a perfectly clear day and the ocean waters were deep blue and clearer than ever.
If you ever need a great way to kickoff a little adventure when you are in Big Sur, do stop at Nepenthe. It is an experience that you will always remember. There’s a reason a movie was filmed here and celebrities are rumored to have wanted to call these very hills their own. It’s a little slice of Big Sur perfection. Take the time to indulge.
