My husband and I were spending a weekend in Big Bear and came here to read and relax one afternoon. What a perfect little place- TONS of different teas and the greatest chai latte I've ever had. I asked if they could perhaps add some pumpkin to it (as it was in season), and holy crap- they put REAL pumpkin... More

We went here to kill some time on our arrival in Big Bear Lake and fell in love with the experience. It was so enjoyable that we had to return the next day. We tried their coffee (very good), their tea (quite good) and their gelato which was excellent. The customers on both days seemed to be very happy to... More

They were polite, efficient, and delicious. From the crepe to the iced tea. Sit down and enjoy yourself. I am sure I am not the first positive review. Even their baked goods were delicious including SAVORY pastries. Their selection is huge. Gigantic, Enormous. Entertaining. Relaxing. The bathrooms are super clean and smell good. We had three iced teas and a... More

Awesome selection of teas. I sample a different iced tea everytime I visit, looking forward to sampling the hot varieties now that the weather is turning cooler. I've also had their veggie crepe, also excellent and very filling. They also have some of the funniest greeting cards.

I was worried when the starbucks that was here previously went missing but I have had the iced coffee twice and it was fantastic. My girlfriend loves the tea and made us go to their other location in arrowhead. She said the iced tea was perfectly sweetened. Very light.

Although the outside and inside is cosy welcoming, and the selection of food looks nice, the service is shocking. The girl could not have been more rude, unwelcoming or inefficient. She clearly does not want to be there. Alters the tone of the whole place . Will look for somewhere else for an extra shot !

This is the second location for the Tea & Coffee Exchange (their first location is in Lake Arrowhead). The food menu features gelato, muffins, paninis and crepes. Our family had coffees, gelato, crepes, and muffins. The coffees were prepared quickly, had good flavor, and were hot. The gelato selection and quality were both fine. The crepe, while taking nearly 15... More
