We left Monterey and drove down into Big Sur early one morning recently and, getting hungry, found the Ripplewood Resort. Service was terrific and so was the food. I had excellent eggs benedict and the hash browns were also really good. My wife had a breakfast burrito with avocado, which was tasty and substantial. She especially loved the crispy meaty bacon and the side of pinto beans. A very satisfying breakfast and compared to the prices of other establishments in the area, the Ripplewood was quite reasonable. A good stop on your way down Highway 1 and just off the highway.
