Eating Comfort Food in Big Sur, California
Down-to-earth Big Sur Bakery & Restaurant is known for its hearty fare. At lunchtime, look for crispy wood-fired pizzas and juicy-delicious burgers grilled over an oak-wood fire and served on housemade buns. At dinner, order anything from the brick oven, especially the crispy-skin roasted chicken — free-range, of course. The bakery opens at 8am, with still-warm pastries, crusty bread, jelly doughnuts, and organic coffee. The takeaway sandwiches are perfect for a picnic or a long car ride home, but they often sell out before noon; get here early.
