Best Brunch Spot in Big Sur!

The Big Sur Bakery wasn't too far from where we were staying. We popped in for brunch and absolutely loved it! Really cute restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The food was wonderful. We had the pancake which was awesome! It is baked in a skillet. I have never had anything like it... read more

A great stop along the highway in Big Sur. There's not a lot of places like this to eat. Delicious food and baked goods. Healthy, reasonably priced. We really enjoyed the stop.

So as pseudo locals (we live 45 miles and 90 minutes away), we have tried several times to eat at this establishment. The first time we tried to eat there, we arrived after our long drive only to find them closed. The second time we tried to eat there,we called to verify they were open before driving down (open until... More

A MUST VISIT. Funky but good pastries. Just off the main road. Stock up on goodies for the ride through Big Sur. Always crowded!!!

The traditional breakfast and the pizzas are excellent. Grab a chocolate croissant on the way out. Seating goes quick and servers are always nice. We make sure to stop by at least once everytime we are in Big Sur.

Stopped for lunch, prices are on the high side for what you receive. 16.50 for a sandwich and small serving of carrot salad.

Big Sur Bakery is the absolute best. They have wonderful everything: coffee, wine, baked goods (hello donuts), sandwiches, brunch. Their wait staff are friendly, funny and had better suggestions about the area than the staff at our hotel. I visited on the first day of my stat in Big Sur and then found an excuse t go there every day... More

We went to The Big Sur Bakery for dinner and breakfast. First up, for pricing, just figure that everything in Big Sur is going to be 25% more expensive than the city; they have to drive-in pretty much everything. Once you let the pricing go, you can enjoy the food! :) The Bakery, as one would hope, has yummy bread.... More

Lucky enough to have visited this place several times now! A great place to stop off along Highway 1. The place is authentic and the food is very good. A lovely place to visit with family and friends. I truly can't wait to come back as holds some amazing memories. Just beautiful.
