Stopped in one rainy morn for breakfast. Glad I did! Great diner atmosphere and reasonable prices. Had the waffle breakfast which was so rich and thick was almost pancake like. Wonderful staff, very attentive. They even had Dr Pepoer. Win win.

Great place and very friendly staff. Be ready to be hungry as hefty portions to choose from. Was here for Breakfast. Coffee was always topped off without having to be asked.

Our waitress was so busy, it was unpleasant: took forever to get menus, then they were tossed on the table as she zoomed past, etc etc. Funky place which was fun, and our food was satisfactory. Wouldn't go back.

We had breakfast and it was so good. We shared and still was full at lunch. they make a lot of their food from scratch. They have a little shop you can look in while waiting. The coffee was really good

A large chain diner in California, with a small-town feel. Clearly the locals love it here; most people were known to the servers. Friendly and quick service, large portions, and hot and tasty food. What more could you want? Also, all-day breakfast.

This local-ish chain of diners has delicious diner food and friendly service...everything you'd expect from a diner. The Black Bear theme is evident in the entire restaurant beginning with the huge black bear that greets diners upon arrival. A fun place for kids and adults.

Visiting wine country and looking for a good breakfast. Here's the place. Went two times in 3 days and was happy both times. Traditional breakfast, good hash browns and coffee. Service was good. May take a while when busy, but food and service are worthwhile.

Thank Belchmeyer
