We went for breakfast to the Lumberjack on Saturday and had their coffee, the Lumberjack Special and a Mexican plate. Both Breakfasts were excellent, the coffee the best I ever had at any Breakfast Place (and I have had a lot of breakfasts) and the server is attentive and very, very nice and definitely on it.

We went for breakfast and the portions were so big we had to skip lunch because we were still full. The biscuits are huge and soft and the gravy isn't greasy, it's creamy and peppery. The potatoes were perfectly cooked. Our bill was $25 for both including drinks. Would definitely come back.

We've been here a couple times, and it has been consistently good! If you don't come early, you may have to wait on weekends.

My family of four (wife & 2kids) always make sure during our yearly vacation to Big Bear we eat at least once at the Lumberjack Café. Huge Portions ...great friendly staff and reasonably priced. ONLY problem...there is usually a very long wait! 20 - 45 minutes normal wait and sometimes longer.

This little cafe looks unimpressive from the outside, but inside it is a classic roadside diner with good food, big portions, low prices and excellent service. The pancakes were phenomenal. A definite locals spot where everyone can feel welcome.

Nice mixed American/Mexican menu. The Mexican selections are very good, and the prices on all are very attractive for budget-minded patrons. Breakfast menu is also quite good.

We love going to a place like this over a chain restaurant like Denny's. The food is great, and the portions are big! Great for breakfast.

We went to this restaurant because it was with in walking distance to motel 6 were we were staying and we didn't feel like driving downtown. It had a nice variety of diner fare, in a converted home environment. Food was good, price was reasonable, waitress was considerate, attentive and friendly.

Best local breakfast without a wait... Great sausages. Family service.... The decor is diner like and a little old but a great place to have your breakfast, especially when the rest of town is stupid busy.

Found this place by accident while looking somewhere for a quick bite before a day in the snow with kids. Service was very attentive. Good portions at low prices. Looked clean and felt very cozy.
