During a weekend in Big Sur, we attended one of Big Sur Bakery's benefit dinners in January 2012 and came back the following night for pizza. The (prix fixe) dinner menu was good, though the amuse-bouche (breaded fish) was unexpectedly heavy. I personally did not like two of the dishes containing barley as they were a heavy on the maple syrup and I felt I was eating breakfast. Their roast quail is excellent. But the dessert and the wood-fired pizzas will blow you away. Lovers of neapolitan pizza will love Big Sur Bakery's pizza; nothing beats the combination of perfect crust and fresh toppings, and you will know someone in the kitchen put a lot of thought and intention into creating it. For dessert and the morning after, all four of us enjoyed their stollen (studded with fruit, speckled with candied fruit peel, and sweetened by marzipan) and their persimmon chocolate cake. A very solid choice for the Big Sur area.

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)

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.

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.

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.
