I was here with my two grandsons and we had a very enjoyable time. We wanted something to warm us because it was chilly and damp outside. The boys ordered hot chocolate and I had a wonderful cup of Earl Gray tea. We shared a banana foster crepe and ginormous chocolate chip cookie. They loved it. Rich but worth it... More

They have high quality coffee beans, and a great selection of teas. Very friendly staff and the best place to cool down having a Frappe.

They take the time to brew up everything at the moment you make the order. Real nice but seem understaffed for the influx of tourists. Waited in line for 20 minutes. Thing is only 7 people ahead of me. Folks just seemed unable to process orders with any sense of urgency. Baked good are tasty. Chai latte average. Mocha was... More

Popped in for a cup of tea and could not quite decide what I wanted. Settled for Chai Tea Latte and had the choice of milk, cream, almond milk or soy. Nice touch!! Came back about an hour later with my son, he had dirty chai, and they were kind enough to make it a double espresso shot. This time... More

We have only ordered beverages at this exchange and have found it to be a nice friendly place in Lake Arrowhead Village. Iced tea is refreshing and freshly made, coffee drinks are really good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. They do offer breakfast sandwiches and next time we will try them.

This is a nice tea and coffee shop, a nice place to sit and have tea, coffee and cookies or a muffin. The hot beverages are served hot, as they should be. The are NOT lukewarm. The pastries are fresh and delicious. And although the prices are not the cheapest, I have seen higher with less quality. And since I... More

This small place is quaint and the staff as nice but the prices are on the high side. There is a very large selection of teas to choose from and there are little jars so you can smell the tea leaves to help you decide what to get.

This is a small shop in the market area amidst all the shopping. As tea lovers, we were happy to see such a wide-variety of teas. We especially enjoyed the experience of smelling the tea before we ask them to brew it. We had the Assam Tea and a Citrus tea. Both were wonderful. The crepe's were good. They also... More

This place is just the place to stop as you drive into Big Bear Lake. It's warm, the people there are very helpful and really want to see that you are a satisfied customer. The coffee and teas are really great! They do have an assortment of breakfast wraps and pastries as well. We do enjoy going here.

Their chai tea latte is excellent. Their gluten free baked goods are awesome! The service staff is good (not outstanding customer service - they could be a little friendlier) and there's only a small wait to get your beverage.
