Dishes Served with French and American Flair at North Shore Café

Located in the nearby town of Fawnskin, North Shore Café is one of the top places to eat in Big Bear for serving up a menu of French and American dishes in a charming knotty pine dining room and a quaint umbrella covered patio with a true French café meets American mountain town feeling.

On the menu, you and your guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner in both the American and French traditions. Start your day with homemade corned beef hash and eggs, a variety of breakfast meats served with three eggs and your choice of side, grilled and seasoned trout with eggs, salmon filet with eggs, or a wide range of omelettes. Omelette variations include combinations of sweet and savory, such as apple, broccoli, and goat cheese, as well as classics like Denver omelettes or ham and cheese omelettes.

Lunch and dinner begin with appetizers such as carnitas street tacos, sautéed button mushrooms, chipotle beef and cheese quesadillas, and baguette garlic bread baskets.

From there, there are a range of decadent entrées to choose from. Grilled pesto crusted filet of salmon with garlic butter, charbroiled Black Angus top sirloin and ribeye, steamed trout stuffed with goat cheese and topped with a champagne cream sauce, seared ahi tuna burgers, grilled duck breast sandwiches, and more will all tantalize your palate.
