We were in town for a soccer tournament and needed a quick place to eat between games. Coffee was watery to me and I don't like strong coffee. Scrambled eggs were okay but the home fries were mushy.

It's a diner--pretty much what you'd expect! It was clean enough; fast enough; good, basic food. Prices were very reasonable.

Stopped for breakfast. All the food is homemade. We had Western omelette and eggs over easy. They were good and potatoes were very good. Service was good. Small place, old decor but will go back.

The menu had a great variety but I would say the food was your average dinner food. Good service and cheap prices

Had errands to run in Bear and wanted to grab breakfast at a diner. The staff were super nice & we were seated promptly. They have a breakfast buffet & I checked it out but it was near the end of the buffet and it didn't smell or appear appetizing so we ordered from the menu. Our server was great,... More

Great local restaurant, best breakfast in town! After driving past this restaurant for years without noticing it, i finally decided to stop in and everything was superb. Very busy on Sunday Mornings, it's worth a try. Have yet to try dinner maybe some of these days.

Thank sam p
