The coffee is always great at the Black Bear They also offer fresh pastries to go with your morning coffee. They also offer a great selection of sandwiches made to order. Great place to meet, either inside or outside.

Service was slow and NOT friendly. Coffee drink was overly sweetened but interesting in concept. Burrito was great, but we ended up having to wait for one person to get a coffee while the other sat and ate. Was a nice environment.

I am somewhat of a coffee snob and I enjoyed this coffee. The outdoor/ indoor seating was plentiful. I had to run next door to Safeway to buy myself some gluten free soy free food. If you do not have food allergies, the breakfast choices...More

The coffees rate right up there with more well known coffee establishments. They offer a good selection of pastries and freshly made sandwiches to go with you coffee. Staff is always friendly and very responsive.
