Good coffee spot

We stopped here and had coffee in their back patio which was nice and relaxing. We were there around 3pm so most baked goods were already sold. The baked goods looked good but we did not try because they looked like leftovers. I am sure the fresh items are awesome. It's a little pricey but a nice... read more

We went to Big Sur Bakery a couple of weeks ago while we were driving through the 101 in California. I visited the place with my boyfriend as an American friend recommended us the place. It was a lovely surprise. It was a shame that the Bakery/Coffee section was almost closing at 8.00pm as everyone was excited with the pieces... More

We LOVED this place. We came for dinner, easily making a res via Yelp, and had the best waiter ever. We had a cozy corner table that was just barely lit by a candle and the sunset. Lovely. I mentioned it was our anniversary and they congratulated us as we checked in for our table. We were immediately seated too,... More

Great place near both Post Ranch and Ventana. Excellent breakfast w/homemade muffins and breads and delicious dinner with a nice wine list.

I've been Road tripping California and found this place along my way. Boy was I happy. A delicious blueberry muffin and great coffee. Coming from Australia, it's been hard to find a coffee that doesn't make me want to spit it out, which is why I was so happy with the flat white I ordered. A barista that can make... More

Stopped for a quick breakfast. Expected more choice in the bakery but was not disappointed with the taste of the things I got. Try the blackberry strudel very tasty.

Great place to sit down for the morning coffee. Hip and trendy. And so is the price (5 bucks or more for a coffee and 5 bucks for a croissant). But yeah, it s holiday and find out.

I know you expect to pay a premium for food and accommodation in the big sur area because of the captive audience. However, no matter how nice the food may be £100 for four pizzas is taking the Michael.
