Big Sur Bakery bacon bow tie. Why don’t all bakeries offer this?!? Perfectly crisped yet slightly chewy, smoky yet slightly sweet, bacon wrapped in the lightest, butteriest pastry dough ever kneaded. Like this might be the best pastry dough I’ve ever tasted.
Not pictured but also wonderful: the cloud-like chocolate croissant and the apple and strawberry streudels – like the best bites of pie in a handheld slice. Returning for: another of each, plus the sold out Danishes. All to be eaten under the rose tree in the back patio. Fuel for hiking, of course.
