The Copper Q is a coffee shop/cafe/trinket store that should be completely abysmal but is actually not. It’s clear that this place caters to Big Bear tourists, but you’re a tourist, so just go with it. There’s a giant fire pit outside, some sort of cooking class situation in the back, and lots and lots of moms holding house-brewed mochas while getting really early starts on Christmas shopping.
