We were a group of 5 here for a birthday dinner on the same night was there was a wedding at the restaurant. As a result, the wait staff neglected the diners as they were trying to service the wedding in the patio/dirt area outside. Our wait person mixed up the orders and it was rather slow service, but the... More

Maybe it was the long hike I had just gone on, but every single bite at Big Sur Bakery was unbelievably delectable. It was also more than enough food. I'll admit I eyed some huge sweet breakfast items, but my sandwich was also superb. We went later in the day and had no problem sitting immediately. Loved sitting in the... More

First of all -- wow!! My husband and I came here for dinner and started off with the octopus appetizer and it was epicurean heaven. All the pizza's are incredible (you really can't go wrong). The service was great and the ambience as well. We came back the next morning for some pastries that were unreal and the barista (Collin)... More

We ate here for breakfast one morning while staying several days in Big Sur. I love trying bakeries when I travel, so I was excited to see that Big Sur had a bakery as well. The morning we were there, they weren't actually serving breakfast since it was not the weekend. We were able to have scarmbled eggs with greens... More

We had 3 days in Big Sur and we had lunch here twice. It was wonderful and an incredible overall value. Our first lunch…i had cheese pizza. Plain, I know, but it was delicious. The homemade crust was perfect, the sauce just right and the cheese was high quality….cooked just right in the brick oven. The second lunch, we both... More

This is a very interesting restaurant. Restrooms are out back and are rustic, but very quaint. You order at the counter and food is the brought to you. Sandwiches are big... My husband and I shared a sandwich and soup. I also got the most delightful hot chocolate. Good food, good service!

We first visited the Big Sur Bakery by accident in August 2012 when the RV we rented got a flat tire surreptitiously across down. The five hour wait meant we ate both breakfast & lunch. We loved it so much we even brought their book. On this trip to San Francisco we made a point to visit again this time... More

I visited the Big Sur Bakery for the first time last year. I happened to drop by on a day when there was a celebrity photographer there doing a photoshoot for BMW/GQ. It was a really wild experience since I am also a photographer. I visited again this year, and while there were no photographers, the pastries and drinks were... More

Yummy food, but after waiting in line over half an hour to order (there were only 4 or 5 people ahead of us—you do the math), we had to wait 45 minutes for a cup of soup and a sandwich. This was a big bummer because my 83 year old mother and I only had 2 days in Big Sur... More

We stopped in on our way from SF to Hearst Castle and loved everything we bought! Although it's fairly pricey ($55 for 2 scones, doughnut, three cookies, bacon bun, oj and latte), the maple walnut scone was incredible! The view was amazing too, and even though the bathrooms were basically little outhouses to the right of the restaurant, they were... More
