This is a cute place to stop for a coffee and a very expensive pastry. Service was friendly and efficient. Great place to relax while touring.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Post Ranch Inn and it may be the most beautiful hotel in the United States in my opinion. About 30 seconds from the Inn is the Big Sur Bakery and you have got to go there...More

The baked goods are to die for. The lunch options are random and tasty. The dinner menu is famous. Enough said.

Sure, one can dine at Sierra Mar/Post Ranch ($125/pp excluding wine) or at Sur House/Ventana ($90/pp excluding wine) or a few other restaurants around the Hwy 1, but none will have better food served by gracious wait staff. Our firsts of sautéed chanterelles and smoked...More
