What a difference a year makes! One year ago Big Sur Bakery was juggling through it’s sixth month of closure as a result of landslides which landlocked our little wood fired bakery/restaurant. We are forever grateful to everyone who lifted us up during those incredibly challenging times, and now, each day, amidst our wood fired oven and grill, baker Raquel Bagatini and chef Eric Piacentine produce deliciousness, while coffee wizard Chris Freeman raises the espresso bar, and service maestro Thierry Fassiotti happily addresses our guests. We are so grateful to be back, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your support!

On another note, Big Sur Bakery would like to hear from inspired, talented, hard working cooks and bakers who are ready for a life change. Big Sur Bakery is located in a rugged wilderness region, and we could not be happier about it. It’s not an easy place to work, but since we are working in a natural paradise, it’s easier to remember that it’s not only about the work, which we find to be absolutely ideal. After almost two decades in our little ranch house on this wild coast, Big Sur Bakery is incredibly excited to finally be able to offer housing to make the landing soft for a new hire. With a Big Sur residence from day one, well, enough said. So, if your life is decidedly about cooking or baking, or both!, and you are convinced that this is your time to live amidst the beauty of Big Sur and work with us – we’re hiring!

the house

Which is the home of the Bakery was built in 1936 by Frank Post’s daughter Alice and her husband Steve. Over the years, the building has continuously been used as a place to restore weary hungry travellers and it is our pleasure to keep the tradition alive today.
