About Moonridge
Coffee Company

Known widely for its specialty breakfast croissant sandwich, Moonridge Coffee Company also specializes in the best espresso drinks, excellent coffee, fresh homemade pastries, and made to order breakfast sandwiches in Big Bear Lake, CA.

Moonridge Coffee Company started out in 2013 as a small, locally-owned business under the management of Laura Pitschmann, who moved from Thousand Oaks, CA to Big Bear Lake, CA to manage the coffee house. In 2015, the reins of management were passed on to Germanie Whitaker, who also relocated from Long Beach, CA to manage the business. In February of 2018, Germanie and Laura decided to pursue their passion for running the coffee house and bought the business from its original owners, taking over as partners. Since then, Moonridge Coffee Company has grown into Big Bear Lake’s coziest breakfast-served-all-day coffee shop, restaurant, and internet café, committed to serving the highest quality coffee.
