Out And About: Big Sur Bakery

June 17, 2014

While camping in Big Sur over the weekend, we rolled out of our tent in the early hours of the morning to head for the Big Sur Bakery.  I’ve always been intrigued by the garden that surrounds it and during this trip we wanted to make sure we finally dropped in.   Thank God we did, since their donuts and pastries are out of this world delicious.  I ordered a blueberry strudel that required a fork, the kids went bonkers over their Cop Donuts (maple glazed with a donut hole on top) and Alex’s savory ham & cheese croissant was perfectly balanced.  All this yumminess is set in an amazing succulent garden that’s  backdropped by the Santa Lucia mountain range.  Take a look at a few images from this legendary morning:

Sounds and looks delicious! I’ve always wanted to go to Big Sur, but haven’t yet. Perhaps you could share any other travel tips? I’m feeling like we just might be able to make it happen!

MAGIC! This may be one of my all-time favorites of your posts. You had the inspiration mojo working the camera with you that morning. Happy to see you enjoying such a special time with your family.

Let me guess as to who ordered cup of coffee #3. Master Max, perhaps?!
