I love Black Bear Diners and this one was great. The food was very good and a great price. Service was excellent but a little slow. Kids loved it too. We always try to eat at Black Bear Diners when we can.

This place was hopping by late morning but the line moved quickly so the wait wasn't too bad. Service was quick and friendly. The food was tasty--just what we needed after several days of camp breakfasts. The bear decor was also fun.

We had the "Fit" Acapulco Scramble and the California Bacon Benedict. Plenty of food, with a generous and fresh side of fruit with each. We really liked their coffee, too!

The service was very good. If someone was, they had someone else help you. Prime rib was the Saturday Night special and even requesting medium rare was not a problem. I would go there every time I am in the area.
