The Big Sur Bakery, a beloved roadside bakery and restaurant that has been a staple for tourists and locals alike along Highway 1 in Big Sur, California since the early 2000s, was destroyed in a devastating fire on Friday, May 3rd.

Around 3:50 pm, firefighters responded to reports of a structure fire at the bakery located right off the iconic coastal highway.

The cause of the fire remains unknown. Thankfully, there were no injuries reported.

In an Instagram post, owner Blaise Godbe Lipman, whose family has a 116-year history in the area, said he plans to rebuild the bakery.

For over 20 years, the Big Sur Bakery had been a must-stop destination for travelers along the breathtaking Highway 1, offering croissants, jars of house-made jam, and other baked goods along with a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

“Although we are no stranger to fire, this one hits hard,” Lipman wrote in his Instagram post.
