Open daily at 10:30am, Grizzly’s won’t catch the early bird crowd, but if you’re a normal person who enjoys sleep, make this little deli your last pit-stop before hitting the trails. The sandwiches here are way better than anything you’re going to find on Bear Mountain. Our move is the TAB (turkey, bacon, avocado, and cheese) on squaw bread, but you can’t really go wrong with any of the build-your-own options.
