There's a lot to love about this all-day Bloomingdale coffeeshop and cafe. First, it's a real coffeehouse in the sense that it brews a new variety of house coffee and espresso every week. It's also a great place to eat a sit-down meal, whether it's a bagel with lox at breakfast or steak-frites at dinner. And it serves alcohol. Big Bear definitely attracts a hipster freelancer crowd, probably because it only turns its WiFi on during the workday. The best part of about this place, though, is the vine-entangled patio with ample seating.
