Great breakfast, but it doesn't end there! You can get a wide range of delicious food at the Black Bear Diner (where Baker's Square use to be for those of you who have been away from Davis for years). There is the classic comfort food, but they also have salads, fish, and lower calories options... read more

Comfort food is what I'm often seeking when I seek refuge in the motel across the street during stressful business visits to Davis--and every meal at Black Bear Diner has provided ample nutritious solace! Usually I order for carry out and receive plenty--enough to last through a long evening. The entrees and sides are always carefully packed and the dinner... More

It is totally american food! It is very very very fat, but the burgers are big and the dishes are HUGE. But be aware it is a very typical oily american food, but the food is tasty!

I ordered hash and my wife ordered waffles. The hash was not the canned stuff. The hash was excellent. The portions were too large for me to eat in one sitting so I had something for lunch the next day. The service was good and efficient.

My 13 year old got the half order of biscuits and gravy. When I saw how enormous the plate was and that it appeared to have two biscuits, the wait staff assured me it was the half portion and that it was one biscuit cut in half. I wish I had taken a photo before she started eating it. My... More

I had a very good country fried stake there, with salad, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Typical diner food, bit very well prepared. Service was courteous, nice, and fast. Just don't be fooled but the part of the menu they call "small portion", the meal was still big and had left overs to take home!

Great meal (Breakfast at Lunch) and huge portions. Ate with a women's college golf team and their meals looked good. Fun environment and friendly staff.
