The beauty of a lakefront village, fresh mountain air, and a slower pace than a big city that attracts millions throughout the year might be just what your need on your next getaway. When planning your Big Bear Lake escape, you’ll want to make sure all your needs are met, from sleeping accommodations at one of our vacation rental homes to dining and activities. Start your day right, enjoy a sweet or savory snack, or indulge in a decadent dessert with a home-cooked meal. There are several bakeries in Big Bear that will help fulfill your baked goods needs.
Sister My Sister Bake Shop
Whether you’re looking for a sweet start to your day, a mid-day snack, or something to top off a delicious home-cooked meal, you’ll find it here. Muffins, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, and croissants are just a few things to start your day out right. Enjoy a savory pizza tart topped with cherry tomatoes, spinach, and feta cheese. If you made the trip to Big Bear around Mother’s Day, their special veggie floral focaccia is a great addition to your Mother’s Day brunch celebration. Don’t forget all the delicious dessert pastries, including cookies, cookie sandwiches, cannoli, scones, cupcakes, pies, cakes, and much more. You’ll satisfy your sweet tooth no matter what you choose!

OJ’s Donut House
Stop in and enjoy delicious donuts of all varieties. From plain cake donuts to donuts covered in sprinkles and many other toppings, you’re sure to find your favorite – or a new favorite – here. You’ll also find fritters and other creations you’ll love. If you’d rather have something cold, choose a frozen yogurt, smoothie, or iced coffee. There are also refrigerated beverages like an array of Snapple and Gatorade flavors and other soft drinks. Warm up in the winter with hot coffee and your favorite donut. They are located at 42173 Big Bear Blvd and are open 5 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily, or until supplies run out. Call 909-866-5633 to make a special order or make sure your favorite is in stock before heading over.
Lulubelle’s Coffee House and Bakery
The short drive to Running Springs is well worth it! You can choose from a variety of delicious cakes, scones, donuts, and even pizzas. “Everything” bagel sandwiches are a crowd-pleaser, and their delicious gourmet coffee goes with everything on the menu. Stop in for lunch and order fresh salads, as well as monstrous burgers with large patties and served with chips and pickles for the perfect taste combination. Lulubelle’s is located at 31621 Pleasant Drive, Running Springs, CA 92382. Make sure your favorites are in stock before heading out at 909-939-0306. Daily hours are 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Stop in for a different – and unique – kind of donut. The restaurant sits at 6,857 feet above sea level, making it the highest donut shop on the West Coast! Your package of donuts will never be the same as anyone else’s. That’s because they hand cut each donut, and rotate flavors often. The restaurant’s “Old School Donuteers” have passed down several recipes for yeast-risen, golden-fried, classic recipes that make their donuts the best in Big Bear. Everyone can enjoy a donut, since they provide vegan and gluten-free options. Donuts isn’t the only thing on the menu. After your donut, enjoy a breakfast burrito with homemade salsa, stuffed croissants, and other quick to-go style lunch options. Because their menu is so extensive, they also offer a variety of soft drinks, beer, and wine, all to-go! Call 909-547-6053 for special orders (at least 24 hours in advance) and to see what’s in stock for the day. Make sure to make it part of your vacation, as they have limited hours of Friday-Monday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., closed Tuesday-Thursday. Find them at 42612 Moonridge Road.
