This is a fairly new addition to the Cambria dining scene. A small, cozy dining room elegantly appointed makes for a very nice ambiance. The service is friendly and the menu items are innovative and everything is housemade and very fresh here.
The Black Cat Bistro serves dinner only.
Favorite Dish: The salad with the goat cheese and hazelnuts, Sea Scallop pasta and the Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert.
Wouldn't ya know it? Right when I find a historic, delicious, and charming place to recommend to everyone, it goes and burns down!
Linn's is a Cambria institution known for its incredibly good savory and dessert pies - at least, it WAS, until the main restaurant building was destroyed in a fire on Easter Sunday, 2006.
The fire did about a million bucks worth of damage to the old brick building, but the folks are determined to rebuild, and, last I heard, they were planning on re-opening in October of 2006. In the meantime, they are still selling their pies and goodies to the public out of another business. I'll try to find the address, but it's just on the main drag from Highway 1 into downtown Cambria - trust me, you can't miss it.
Favorite Dish: When I was there last I had a seafood pie which was sooooo good. It was scallops, shrimp and crabmeat in a Newburg sauce and it is every bit as rich and delicious as it sounds. I also had a very good piece of blueberry pie for dessert. I think both with a drink was like $20.
Stopped in for a quick cup of coffee and spotted something sweet that ended up being a pleasant surprise. great place and good coffee!
Breakfast at the Blue Whale Inn was a friendly get together of fellow travelers along with the owners of the Inn.
