Drop In and Stay Awhile

The Plaza is the perfect spot to stretch your legs, enjoy the sun, and take a break from the drive. Surrounded by food options and tiny shops, the Plaza is Ragged Point's hub of activity.

Summer weekends, local bands perform on the Plaza, free-of-charge. While you tap your toes to the music, our chefs grill up ribs, chicken, and Dungeness crab to curb your hunger, and you can wet your whistle on a cold beer or glass of local wine. If you prefer, our ice cream shop also serves delicious SLO Maid ice cream on Summer days and most weekends throughout the year.

Our Sandwich Stand prepares made-to-order faster food items year-round so you can enjoy a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the plaza, and get right back on the road. Our Espresso Bar features barista drinks and sumptuous fresh-baked treats, craft beers and California wines, and a limited menu of burgers and other restaurant items.

You're invited to spend a few minutes, the whole afternoon, or the entire day on the Ragged Point Plaza. If you're looking for more adventure see our local attractions like the Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery or local hiking in big sur.
