Such a great spot for brunch or baked goods. Their pizzas are fabulous and the chicken on the brunch menu is a must-try!

There's not much in Big Sur so we stopped at Big Sur Bakery & Restaurant and ordered the best turkey sandwich we've ever had. A 5-star review for an amazing sandwich, great service and awesome late

We stopped here for brunch before heading up to San Francisco. conveniently located by a petrol station . Nice artisan sandwiches but not a wide selection. Their home baked cookies and coconut macaroons were very yummy, i bought more to take along the ride. Coffee and hot chocolate also good. Service was slow. Waited over 30mins for sandwiches.

Being rather disappointed by the the POST RANCH INN we then discovered this bakery(it is more of a restaurant/cafe) and how cool. Amazing setting, such cool vibe and perfect food and service. LOVED IT

Obligatory stop while visiting the Big Sur Coast! This funky bakery delivers with freshly baked goods and their sourdough bread is delish on the sandwiches. Nothing beats this bakery in Big Sur for pre-hike chow!

Two words. Bacon bow ties. Delectable croissants wrapped around maple glazed bacon. The rest of the menu is good too. Located right behind a shell gas station off of highway 1. We stopped here for lunch after having to turn around due to road closures. What a fortuitous stop. Since it was 1ish and in January, it wasn't very full... More

Best service and pastries in Big Sur. We went for breakfast, and had a wood fired oven breakfast pizza and philly style eggs and hash. Everything from scratch with love. Don't pass by this gem in Big Sur. Amazing coffee and teas as well.

The coffee was great. The food was great. Service was friendly, fast, and helpful. The inside is warm and cozy. The outside looked very nice (it was raining when we were there so happy to sit inside).

Big Sur Bakery and Restaurant is just what the name says - a bakery/coffee shop during the day, and about 5ish p.m. it turns into a fine-dining establishment. It's a very cozy place, wonderful on a cold day, or a rainy one as we had experienced. There is a gas station on the same location as well as lodging. The... More

We love Big Sur and the crowds at Christmas were manageable. Of course there is a wait, but again be patient. The staff are friendly and everything is fresh. Ask the counter staff for a baked goods recommendation and you'll be pleased. They have seating inside for the restaurant and outside for the bakery.
