Good Eats!

This restaurant has good quality food, at a very reasonable price. Their breakfasts are fantastic! Have never had a dad meal or experience here.

Overall, this is a great establishment. The service was fantastic, and the prices are superb. You get HUGE portions. My one complaint: the pulled pork sandwich was awful. It was dry and/overcooked. :( Based on other reviews and seeing other diners' orders, your best bet is breakfast.

Nothing fancy but my breakfast was fantastic. The pancakes were excellent. The whole meal was excellent. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were very fair. Give this place a try.

We stopped here for lunch after reading about it here on Tripadvisor. We like cafe style places Papa Bear was a good choice. The soups were very good and the meals were plentiful and tasty. All the waitstaff were courteous too.

Played some hockey for a short stint for a team in the area, and I ate at this place pretty much every night. Great food, at a great price, and the service was amazing. Nothing but good things to say about this place

Good food and a lot of food for your money. I have eaten here every time I stay in Aurora. Friendly staff and never have had to wait for a seat, but I do eat at off times mostly. Home cooked meals that I like - meat, potatoes and vegetables !!! Yummy... :)

They serve breakfast as well as sandwiched and dinners during the day. Coffee cup was refilled without being asked. Restaurant is right for any size group, they cater to families AND they are quite reasonable. Our bill for two, including tip, was under $20. We fell that It's better to eat here than go fast foods at the Outlet Mall... More

This is another one of those hidden places that is quite plain from the outside but serves very good food. Not a great variety but what is offered tastes very good and is exceptionally large. We both went in for lunch but ordered breakfast food. Omeltes are very oarge and good. Creapes were also excessinv and good. If we lived... More
