Posted: 01/10/20

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we agree. Nothing quite hits the spot like a morning feast to welcome the day ahead! Big Bear checks all the boxes in the way of breakfast options; top notch restaurants throughout the Valley offer hearty pancake platters, light cafe bites, vegan & vegetarian delights, and of course fresh brewed coffee! Let's eat!

Amangela’s Sandwich & Bagel House

This little cafe is a Village favorite with specialty coffees, teas, smoothies and other mixed beverages. The bagel game is strong here: with options like Lox & Cream Cheese, Zesty Red Onion w/ Lemon Pepper, a traditional Breakfast Bagel with the works, a house special Amangela's Bagel, and more will have you feeling the need to return at lunchtime to tryout fresh deli selections, soups, and more! Vegetarian and gluten free options available.

Dine inside or out near the fire pit. Dogs on leash are welcome on the outdoor patio.

The Barnstorm Restaurant

Located in the Big Bear City Airport, Barnstorm patrons can enjoy one of the most unique views as planes land and take off just outside! Full breakfast platters fuel you up for a high flying day. Choose from French toast, buttermilk flapjacks, Belgian waffles, homemade crepes and more from their Propeller menu. For those needing more of a kick, refer to the High Octane options like Steak & Eggs, breakfast sandwiches, and seafood inspired Benedicts like lobster, salmon, and crab cake.
