Would you like to know something I love about going on a trip? I love hunting out good local eateries. There is something about breaking bread over a table with friends / family that really adds some extra depth to a trip. I’m all down for adventures, hiking, sight-seeing, and the to-see lists – but you’ll always need some sustenance to get you through, so why not make it good?
When we were in Big Bear our sweet Airbnb left us a lift of some of their favorite local eateries (I love when they do that!) and after a little research we ended up hitting a few of their favorites. Below is a list of all the places we were able to eat at (some more than once!) while in Big Bear and I would highly recommend each of them!
Tropicali Local | This was our #1 Favorite spot!! Seriously this place is hands down THE BEST in Big Bear so much so that in our 3 days there we went twice and would have gone every meal! They have poke bowls (I got that each time I went and the kraken bowl was so dang good), Hawaiin style bowls, scrumptious waffles (seriously get the Kingston and stay for the fire show!!!
572 Social Kitchen & Lounge | This was our first stop when we got to Big Bear. We wanted a some good quick food and their burgers was so stinking good!
Copper Q | We grabbed some DELICIOUS coffee here a few times while we were in town. Their other goodies looked really tasty too.
Frusion Juce’N’Coffee Bar | We grabbed an açaí bowl and some avocado toast on our way out of Big Bear and to say this was delicious would be an understatement. These were SO GOOD! (here is their instagram)
