“Great selection of tea and scones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

On our drive home we wanted something quick. We stopped at Big Sur Bakery for tea and a scone. The tea selection is huge and fabulous I had an herbal and the husband had breakfast tea and shared a delicious ginger scone. It hit the spot. The total was $11 it was a little high but was good quality and the service was outstanding (greeted and served with a genuine smile)

“Our absolute favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

What a special place. I dream of going back. We went 3 times in 2 days! Once for lunch, once for dinner and again for pizza. Everything we tried was amazing. We love the cozy vibe, friendly staff and thoughtful food. It's a must-visit place in Big Sur.

“Great for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The pizzas are fantastic, the entrees (frequently the fish) are very tasty, the wine list is quite nice, decor is relaxed and rustic, servers are friendly, and all for a reasonable price.

“Perfect (so far)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Stopped in for coffee and croissants this morning before breakfast. Happy staff, quality food and beverage. Great value. Looked like a cool and cozy place. Went back for dinner, but didn't stay because they were having a (rare) prix fixe Fishermans dinner and it was just too much food for us - we wanted pizza. I want to go back here daily, and would if I lived here.

“Small but oh so good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Service is order at the counter and food is delivered to your table. We were in the lineup for lunch and ordered soup and the hummus/vegetable sandwich. All the sandwiches are made with homemade bread and fresh local produce. The soup was flavorful and creamy. The sandwich was so good that we ate it and bought another one to go. If we had stayed in the area, we would have gone back for dinner.
