Tropicali | Big Bear Lake, California
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
These goods are well worth the hour long, sweaty palms, windy mountain drive up to Big Bear Lake - PROMISE.
This locally owned family business is cooking up traditional dishes from the islands and serving them to the main land. This is much more than a menu, it's a lifestyle.
"AN ISLAND STATE OF MIND"
Described as a "Neo Nostalgia Brand" Tropicali is vibin' to a beat of their own.
The tiny roadside shack houses a TON of personality. The staff is super upbeat and interactive and know just how to put you in an awesome mood.
Honestly, we would have eaten ANYTHING they tried to serve us...
This creative collaboration of west coast lifestyle brand meets tropical taste buds was developed by a pro surfer/actress/
director husband & wife duo.
We could post up here and sip coffee in the sun ALL DAY.
But oh yeah - the food is BOMB.

Melt your face off Jamaican Jerk Chicken (left) - rice & beans, Rasta peppers and "Bob Gnarly Boss Sauce"
... but really, you can't go wrong with anything on this menu!
AND waffles AND coffee AND super cool drinks!
