Food Scene
The best pizza joint in town, by far! Saucy Mama's is great for grabbing a pizza to enjoy at home or sitting down with a beer and enjoying the cute décor and delicious food. Pizza, mac 'n cheese, salads in old school wooden bowls, this place does it all well. During the peak summer season, this place fills up fast, so get there early or be prepared to wait a little bit. It's worth it, though!

You'd never believe such a small town has such good, authentic Indian cuisine, but this place doesn't disappoint. The samosas and the chicken tikka masala are some local favorites, and don't forget the naan! They deliver and have a small restaurant in the Village.

This place is small, but the food is great and the service is very friendly. It has a real small-town vibe. (The first time we ate here, the waitress who helped us was also our guide at Snow Summit the following morning for mountain biking.) Whether you a craving lobster ravioli or just a great steak, this is a wonderful place for dinner. Please note that you will need a reservation, as the restaurant is tiny, and you have to call to get one, so plan ahead. Don't be put off by the message machine, they really do call you back!

One of the best for breakfast. Get there early though, as this is a local and tourist favorite. With a lovely outdoor seating area (pet friendly), or seats at the bar, whatever your pleasure, this place does the American breakfast staples well.

Oh my goodness, these sandwiches! Amangela's makes great sammies, on homemade bread, with the freshest of ingredients. And their homemade potato salad is delicious. Try their smoothies and blended coffee drinks too, they are a local favorite! Quick pick up if you call ahead or sit on their lovely terrace and enjoy the Village foot traffic.

This little place is slightly out of the way from the main part of town, but is a perfect spot to hit on your way down from Bear Mountain. Either way, it's worth the trek. They have great cold and hot sandwiches and all their sides, made in house, are really yummy.

On the newer side, Social Kitchen has a lovely outdoor patio with fire pits and heaters for the chillier summer nights. It has a diverse, unique food and bar menu and can be a really fun place to hang out. Try the burgers!

Grizzly Manor is a Big Bear legend and it's hands down the most popular joint for breakfast. Here's the local's secret: Go before 9 on weekends and you'll stand a better chance of avoiding the sometimes 45 minute wait. Oh, and order the biscuits and gravy, if you're into that, they are delicious.

Open all year round, the Bowling Barn promises some serious local color and some bad-ass lanes, and it delivers. Whether you're escaping the cold or just can't go another day without trying for that strike, this is a fun place to spend a few hours.
