Been coming here to the Alpine Janet's ever since it opened. Generous (very) portions, fair prices and most importantly, just good food. Friendly staff, family owned. You won't regret it... Seriously nothing bad to say, only good....

Great service, lovely quiet patio out back, breakfast is delicious and varied, fresh fruit is really fresh! Muffins are fabulous! I've had dinner here but usually go next door to the Tavern, run by the same folks.

We love coming here and sitting outside. They have a much larger menu than their smaller Santee location with tons of selections that would have to please even the pickiest eater. Very large portions

Cute charming place like a town in Big Bear. Friendly service big portions fresh baked desserts. You could share a meal $2 split fee. You can eat inside or outside depending on weather. A little pricey but worth it.
