Coronavirus Business Update:
We are adapting our business temporarily to be sustainable during the coronavirus epidemic. Our normal hours below will resume after we all weather the storm.
Our Café is open 11:30-7:00 daily for Take-Out orders only. We have discounted our menu items 30% in hopes to not only keep our doors open but also fill the needs of nourishment within our community. Order ahead by calling us at 805-688-7265 ext. 0. Please visit our online menu here.
Our Wine Merchant is available online 24/7 to ship wine to all states except Kentucky and Mississippi! We’ll pay the shipping for all orders of 12 or more bottles that are shipped to California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada. Locals can order online and pick-up or call us to see if we can deliver to your door.
From the abundance of local produce– much of which is grown from our own CCOF certified organic Cafe Farm– to grass-fed beef, natural free-range chicken, and sustainable seafood, we take great care in selecting each item that makes its way to your plate. The rustic-elegance of the Los Olivos Cafe with the backdrop of our extensive wall of wine (you may recognize it as the backdrop for the pivotal scene in the Academy Award Winning movie SIDEWAYS) creates an inviting ambiance that pairs perfectly with our extensive award-winning wine list highlighting the incredible wines of our California Central Coast.
