Southern California is blessed with many wonderful things, among them the ability to venture from Pacific Ocean surf to several feet of snow in as little as two hours’ time. Perhaps most charming is greater Los Angeles’s access to so many different mountain towns in the national forests and parks that surround the Southland, including Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, Pine Mountain, and Idyllwild. But the big question is: Where does one eat when hiding out in some cozy grizzly bear-themed cabin?
Here now are twelve great options for restaurants that can be found in various mountain communities across Southern California. The list ranges from lesser-known Frazier Park, the popular Big Bear, part of the Tejon Pass region, Crestline, and down on to Idyllwild proper. From crepes to vegetarian fare and Nepalese specialities, each small mountain town has something great to offer.
