For some reason, Big Bear restaurants just have breakfast figured out. And Dank Donuts is another worthy addition. They’re making donuts daily, plus a small selection of breakfast burritos that are highly worth your time. The cake-style donuts are plenty doughy, but also still light enough that you can make it to the end of your hike. Our favorite is the Bear Claw, but really, go for whatever they say is hot. Adding a ham, cheese, and jalapeno croissant is also a good idea.
