I usually order the Volcano or Mini Volcano breakfast with pancakes, eggs and bacon. Great pancakes and bacon. Husband ordered Turkey Club with fries. Also good. Generous portions, friendly waitstaff, and reasonable prices. Very crowded on weekends, but worth the wait.

When one goes to Black Bear Diner, he or she'd better bring along a hefty appetite. Not only is the food delicious, but the portions are generous. The manager told us that, if the restaurant has the ingredients, they'll make anything the customers want. I...More

Good Food / Decently Priced / Comfort Food / Mix and Match to make your meal healthy - like replace the rice with Salad - replace the Potatoes with Fruit etc. Great place for larger number of people to meet and fellowship

We were in Milpitas for a family function. This diner was recommended by our son. It has big portions and the price is good.
