I know I’m late to the game on this one, but Big Bear Cafe is amazing! I recently took a trip to Italy and once back in the States, I was craving a decent cappuccino. The Italian-style isn’t as layered as what you get here. There’s not an inch of tasteless foam to work through before you get to the liquid. With Italian cappuccino, the whole thing is kinda creamy and frothy and downright beautiful. I thought all was lost, but then I went to Big Bear in a little place called Bloomingdale. They’re telling the truth when they say they serve Italian-style espresso. It’s the real deal. And it’s delicious. So if you’re needing a fix or wondering what you’re missing, go to this cafe. It’ll make you happy. And jittery.
