     Welcome to Freedom
                                      28 years it’s been open. Since it was established in the 90’s Big Sky Café has been a relaxed space where people can come together to eat good, fresh food. Charles sold Big Sky to me in 2015, and ever since we have been dedicated to continu- ing 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, and 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.
Owner Greg Holt said, “We try to look at food intelligently, to em- phasize flavors. We serve healthy,
San Luis Obispo
thoughtfully prepared ingredients. I’ve got so many farmers growing great stuff like potatoes, tomatoes, and strawberries, lots of organics. All of these opportunities for us
to get the best local produce and interesting products makes our job easier to make good food for our guests.”
Big Sky Café is open for inside and patio dining. Curbside pickup, takeout and delivery by a number of popular delivery services are also available. The restaurant is currently taking catering reserva- tions. Check out the catering menu on the website and email owner@ about your upcom- ing catered event.
