The view is great and the breakfast/brunch was fantastic. We didn’t have to queue for long and considering the setting etc I think the prices were fairly reasonable. Definitely worth a visit!

I’ve been very disappointed by this place (very beautiful for its view though), where I had a moth in my grilled cheese sandwich. When I kindly and discreetly said it to the manager, she did not even apologized and clearly did not care at all.

I'd give this place 1 star but my husband's breakfast burrito was very good. I mistakenly ordered the chicken caesar salad and it was the most awful thing I've ever eaten in my life. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to eat chicken again...More

Nepenthe had a long waiting list and after seeing this place, we changed our minds. It was well worth it. Kevah may not offer a full dining experience but has more open view. A better place if the weather is good.

Great stop off if you are doing H1. Toasted Sandwiches very filling and great cup of coffee or tea. Other drinks also available.

Our hotel did not serve breakfast, so we ventured here for a late breakfast. I had poached eggs w/ crab & avocado; excellent. Go downstairs to their store.

The brunch is incredible! Crab meat eggs Benedict, breakfast burrito, cinnamon roll, cheese and fruit plate...no disappointment at all. Each dish delicious and hot. Some renovations going on but the view to the south from the sunny, sheltered patio was amazing. Small children in tow...More

We stopped for lunch during our drive from Carmel into Big Sur. Just picked it by chance as it is right on Highway 1. We spent more time than planned because the ocean view was so lovely! After our morning hike in the sun, we...More

Why don't you check the online menu for Kevah. I'm not sure if Nepenthe serves that, but give them a try also. The only other clifftop, ocean view restaurants in the Central Coast area would be in the Avila Beach, She'll... More
