Big Bear is a nice gem of a place. They have a nice selection of prepared foods and sandwiches made to order. They also do catering. They also sell wines. You can also purchase sliced meats and cheeses.

One of my favorite places in Northern Michigan to get top quality deli sandwiches. Always fresh made to order with Boar's Head Deli Meats. If you are in Gaylord this is a must for lunch. Pictured is their Super Club.

Between the bakery and homemade sandwiches, you need to go here for lunch and get their awesome smoothies.
