We study the properties of the Bose-Fermi mixture from the perspective of reaching a state of a self-bound quantum droplet. The variational analysis shows that the system exhibits bistability. One of the equilibrium states, smaller in size, spherically symmetric, and with negative energy, corresponds to quantum droplet, the other with always positive energy represents the elongated droplet-like state immersed in the sea of a fermionic cloud. .
