Big Sky Cafe, in the heart of SLO, serves up 20 local wines, and a menu of wonderful dishes prepared with a focus on freshness and flavor. Owner Greg Holt says, “We so are so dependent upon our local farmers, ranchers, vintners and brewers to help us create our ‘Real food by Real people.”
Famous for their breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Big Sky Cafe is known for serving up great specials featuring an explosion of creativity, vegetarian cuisine combined with worldly delights. Guests will find a seasonally changing menu which keeps the locals happy and coming back for more.
The charming, laid-back atmo- sphere in Big Sky Cafe is casual, with rustic touches like mission tiles, indoor archways, and an open ceiling with skylights. The founder of Big Sky, Charles Myers came
up with the name from a Chinese proverb, “One Big Sky covers us all equally.” The current owner Greg Holt says;, “It is so cool to have a space that welcomes all individuals we treat everyone here as their own person. I’ve been here for 22 of the 28 years it’s been open. Since it was established in the 90’s Big Sky Cafe has been a relaxed space where
people come together to eat good, fresh food. Charles sold Big Sky to me in 2015, and ever since we have been dedicated to continuing to be a part of this amazing community."
Big Sky Cafe has a colorful seasonal menu found nowhere
else, and specializes in flavorful dishes that explore the fun side
of food. Big Sky Cafe has always sourced ingredients directly from local farmers and markets, where they hand select fresh, sustainable organic fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy. Big Sky Cafe opened in the early 1990s and were pioneers in the local farm-to-table move- ment. People want to know where the food they are eating is coming from, what impact it has on the environment, and how it’s grown. Knowing the local distributors and sharing the knowledge of where the food comes from helps customers understand traceability, and puts a big focus on food safety, freshness, and seasonality. Farm-to-fork is supporting local family farms with heirloom and organic vegetables, helping us move further away from the highly centralized food growing and distribution systems in these modern times.
