a bit of history

We are located in a 1936 ranch-style home built by frank post’s daughter alice and her husband steve; the building has since served as a respite for weary and hungry travelers. It is our pleasure to keep the tradition alive.

big sur bakery special events

We invite you and your guests into our home for your special event, whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding or a gathering of familiar faces. You will see the words "family style" as you leaf through our menus. We serve the majority of our food in this way so that every guest can sample every treat you select. We find that this style of dining fits well with our atmosphere.
