My wife and I had a wonderful lunch here. Great service. It was mid day and not busy but waitress had time to talk and go over the menu. Food was VG and plentiful. Would drive back up again just for lunch here.

a lot of folks drop in just for coffee and pie, breakfasts are hearty and the wait staff are quick and so pleasant. This is one of the few places open after the movies let out, and the desserts are worth the trip, great sundaes and so very fresh pies!

We walked in and were a little worried when we saw that you sign in. The place was crowded, which is usually a good sign. We were called pretty quickly despite the crowd. I ordered the pastrami hash. It was amazing. My wife ordered the tomato, basil, and feta omelette. My daughters split the Benedict. Everyone was very pleased. The... More

Homemade yummy food, not gourmet, but delicious. Even though the place was buzzing they got us seated very quickly. I got the "turkey avocado melt sandwich", it was messier than I expected, but tasted great. Service was a tad slow, but everyone was really friendly.

Great food, very friendly waiters. Found them through Yelp, while we had a walk in the neighborhood. The breakfast they serve the whole day, was yummy! We ordered 3 burgers, chicken pie and a bacon and eggs breakfast. Had a blast! Just remember to bring cash, looks like everyone accepts cash only in Big Bear. :)

This place is small but very good. We didn't have to wait long to be seated, which was nice because it seems to be popular. It's one of the few breakfast places in the main village area. My boyfriend and I both ordered omelets and both were huge and delicious. The service was prompt and our waitress was very nice... More

This restaurant is a Big Bear Lake tradition, having started way back in 1945. It's conveniently located in the Village and has adequate off-street parking. My wife and I usually go here either before or after a movie at the Village Theaters across the street. They have house specials every night and our favorite is the famous chicken pot pie,... More

OK, this is a kind of mom-n-pop place and they only accept cash. Once you are over these issues, (which aren't really issues!) the place and the food is brilliant!! Do expect to queue a little, the place is not huge and very popular (it's worth the wait!!) You kind of check yourself in, adding your name to the list.... More

Nice mom-n-pop atmosphere. After a 20 min wait --- the line was out the door --- (it's a small size restaurant) we were seated in the back room. The waiting to get in was the only waiting we did. The service and the food were both Great, Good job. We're definitely coming back !!!
