Impressive small café for breakfast. Great coffee. Great muffins. Personality plus. One of the counter workers might have been the owner - his upbeat personality would brighten anyone's day! If he is not the owner, he should be! (Me bad. I forgot his name.)

We went in search of some good local coffee and found this place. not huge but plenty of seats outside. Good selection of coffee and baked goods. Nice atmosphere and it seems a lot of locals go there as well.

We visited the Black Bear Coffee House 3x while in Denali. Each time, we were pleased (we own a coffee shop in Prattville, AL ([MugShots JAVA]) so I tend to be pretty critical of my coffee and experiences. The service was fine 2 of the 3x. The third and last time we were able to visit, the young man helping... More

Lovely wholesome food, we had soup and taco, reasonably priced and pleasant helpful staff. If we'd have been staying longer we would have returned. King and Queen of England

Great place to grab a healthy, gluten free snack before going into Denali. First time that I ever had chia pudding which was excellent. Enjoyed the sweet potato and brown rice bowl, too.

As a coffee lover, it became a routine for me to stop by here at least twice a day during my stay. Pleasant place to grab coffee & pastries/sandwiches in the mornings, coffee and occasional? dessert again after dinner. Simpily a great place with good people serving good food on the go!!
