Billy Bear's is closed and no longer in business. The Crestline Café is remodeling the facility and will moved there soon. This will be a big improvement and give the Crestline Café a much bigger restaurant.

My husband and I had grilled chicken salads. The greens were crunchy, the chicken was seasoned and grilled perfectly. A great salad in every way.

Had a good sandwich and husband had steak. You can tell the cook took pride in his meals he served. Waitress was pleasant and manager friendly. Good for a quick affordable bite in a pretty well maintained atmosphere. Could use a little updating.

Ordered an omelet with hash browns and toast. Food was more cafeteria style than sit down restaurant. Food was of low quality but service was acceptable. Looking forward to new ownership as the restaurant has been sold.

This is a fixture in Crestline. The owner, Yolanda is a wonderful, friendly lady who makes you feel at home. Try the Cobb Salad. It's loaded with chicken and is really big. Nice waitresses and lots of teddy bears!

This is a diner is a small town, the food is decent, but it could be much better. They could expand their menu to include more creative faires such as breakfast tacos and burritos, fruitier waffles, pancakes, and crepes... The pancakes are good, but having buttermilk, and other full grain options would be great. The service is excellent.. The people... More
