After a few days of camping amongst the oaks and redwoods at Pfeiffer Big Sur, we were looking forward to a nice breakfast at the Big Sur Bakery. We visited in the late morning of Sunday, July 27, 2014 and the breakfast crowd was just beginning to form. The line at the counter for pastries and coffee was long but... More

This is a lovely place for brunch when the weather is good. We sat outside in the garden area. We had pancake (which was more like a cake - thick and very filling) and an omelet. The omelet was delicious, made with fresh herbs and served with a green salad and bread grilled in the woodfire oven. The salad was... More

Way over priced for the food. Your definitely paying for the atmosphere & view. It was a $200 dollar meal for 4. The pizza was good, not worth $25 for a personal. They charged for bread, which was stale. The New York strip steak was ok. They gave me 2 small new potatoes as my side. everything is a la... More

We made the drive down 1 to Big Sur mostly to enjoy the scenery. However a very nice waitress had recommended we go as far as the Bakery and pick up some things. We were quite disappointed to get there to find a mostly barren display case at mid-day. Didn't end up buying anything because there were only about four... More

The bakery feels a little like it has been there for decades, perhaps it has? It has a relaxed, boho feel and a limited menu based around their wood fired oven, however despite the limitations it still offers everything from a sandwich, pizza and some plates. Service was good and the food was good. It does what it says on... More

I've been hearing about this place for a long time. I'm told that this is a local favorite and it's a must-do in Big Sur. We went for dinner and, while it wasn't bad, there wasn't anything special going on. We drove by on a weekend afternoon and the place was flooded with cars, so the "secret" has apparently caught...
