Excellent Breakfast

Stop by for breakfast if you're anywhere nearby here. We got eggs on toast with ham + gruyere cheese and a banana and chocolate strudel. Both were absolutely delicious, and I highly recommend any of the strudels. Slightly expensive breakfast drinks but you're also getting the woodsy vibe and... read more

Riding the Pacific Coast highway, we were starving so we decide tot pull over to have lunch at the big sur bakery. The two of us both ordered the 'soup green salad' dish on the menu. We als ordered two croissonts (4 Dollars each!). In total,we payed more than 40 dollars for a crappy lunch. The soup was disgusting: it's... More

We had a very romantic dinner here at the Bakery. My husband and I shared a bottle of great wine. I had the fish that was fixed to perfection. A must if you are in the area.

Some of the best coffee in the area. We wanted to be tempted by the pastries/baked goods but we weren't.

This stop came as a recommendation and is based on a sit-down brunch in the restaurant - not the coffee bar/pastry counter. The wait to dine was not long, but once seated it took quite a bit of time to get water and even longer to see our waiter. We had our order ready once he did stop. Several minutes... More

The prices were not cheap, but the croissant and scone were actually excellent. Perfect little spot for coffee and something sweet.

We were getting hungry for breakfast and desperate for a comfort break when we pulled into here. It was very busy and it was a bit confusing about whether there was anyone to seat you initially. We had a little wait for a table which was just as well as the queue for the comfort break was very long. Brunch... More

View is fantastic. Food was great. Would go back again. Baked goods are made with local ingredients.

Amazing baked goods -- the chocolate chip banana muffin is perfect with a hot coffee. Would definitely return. Go around 8am on week days to ensure thatyou won't run into a crowd. Why wouldn't you be up with the sun at Big Sur anyway? :)

In three weeks in the States, I had just three cups of coffee that were worthy of the name. The best one was here. The flat white really set me up for the day, and the peanut butter brownie was pretty good too! Don't miss the little gift shop just along the terrace: it has a great selection of local... More
