You just hiked eight miles in the beating sun, low-key rolled your ankle, and now you need a sandwich. Idyllwild Bake Shop has our favorite lunch in town and the quiet side patio is the ideal place to unwind after a never-ending hike up the side of a mountain. All of their sandwiches come on house-made sourdough bread and you can either build your own or choose from one of their specialty sandwiches (we recommend the latter). Also, this is a bake shop, so getting a giant cookie is a requirement.
