A labor of love, Big Sur Bakery & Restaurant is one of the most unique establishments in Big Sur, serving great meals and delicious treats morning, noon, and night. Here's a sample...

Wood-fired pizza with butternut squash and cubes of prosciutto.
Braised giant white lima beans with broccoli, mirepoix and wilted greens.
Pan-seared and roasted duck breast with garlic and ginger sauce.
Butter-braised pacific white sea bass with white wine and herbs.


Big Sur Bakery & Restaurant is a collaboration between three Big Sur locals.

Michelle Rizzilo, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, worked at La Brea Bakery, Campanile, and Four Seasons in Los Angeles. Michelle specializes in baked goods and desserts.

Philip Wojtowicz, also a Culinary Institute graduate, with experience at the Four Oaks and Joe's, a Venice restaurant, runs the kitchen and prepares delicious home-cooked meals.

Mike Gilson, a Big Sur real estate agent and business owner, runs the front of the restaurant.
