Atmosphere is loud and crowded. Food was too greasy to my liking. The bright spot was our friendly server.

It's a bit pricy here, but definitely worth it. I am in love with the waffles, they have a pawprint in the middle too. The decor is precious and the service is always on point :) love this place.

Description
You know the best thing about the Black Bear Diner in Vacaville? We don’t, either — because everything about it is so great! Maybe it’s the tasty food. Perhaps it’s the friendly employees. Most likely, it’s a combination of both… and that’s exactly what brings our customers back for more. We hope you’ll come down for your next breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
