I visited Big Bear Bistro for breakfast and this small cozy place is just awesome. Great for breakfast and lunch. Delicious omelette and coffee.

We had omelets here with pork chile gravy. It was cold out so we were happy to find a table inside, but the line to order was right next to out table, so it did not feel safe. People sitting inside reading the paper, and...because they had a cup of coffee nearby, they didn't have to wear a mask. We picked up and left, ate our just-ok food outside.More

Okay but not amazing! Four of us stopped for breakfast. Burritos and omelets were our menu items of choice. Veggie choices were jarred and fresh mix. Limited indoor/outdoor seating with Covid but a giant smashed line of people waiting to order. No social distancing here....I would pass.More

Solid breakfast option for a quick eat. Had the breakfast burrito which was really good. The kids enjoyed the eggs and toast. Indoor space was small but was nice enough to eat outside.

We decided to try this restaurant given the reviews and the location. I tried the omelette with cheddar, mushrooms and tomatoes. Overall, it was delicious. Balanced basic flavors in a standard omelette. The caramel latte was well prepared. The cinnamon roll was a litte tough...for our liking. The breakfast burrito was very basic. It lacked the southwestern flavor my partner is accustomed to. They gave us a complimentary small amount of geen chile to help out the flavor, which is usually extra. The service was top notch and all staff were masked. The outdoor accomodations were perfect. Located right next to a stream. If you are looking for a good basic hearty breakfast to start your day with great service, I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Loved this place. Everyone, group of 5, enjoyed their food except for the pancakes. Just not what we are used to in the south. Would definitely come here again and most likely will over the next 9 days we are here. Work the walk!

Big Bear Bistro has an extensive menu when other restaurants have pared back due to Covid. Order at the register inside and food will be brought to your table. The Strawberry and Chocolate Crepe was very large. Unfortunately, the crepe was thick and doughy. The...Breakfast Burrito covered in Pork Green Chili was a generous size and yummy. We would surely go back for breakfast!More

One of the worst bagels I ever ate in my life. It was hard and not fresh. It took them forever to clean a table for us. The waiter looked not clean and not friendly at all. I was not impressed at all.

Favorite for breakfast! Besides the croissant French toast, we've also had great omelets, coffee, etc. It's a popular spot, so expect to wait in line to order, & snag a table as soon as it opens.
