Wednesday 7/23/14 I ordered Cheese Omelet with ham and hash-browns, Omelet was good However: the Hash-browns had so many chives in it that chives was the dominate flavor and I could not cover it up with Ketchup. The cook was a bit rude when I complained about the hash-browns... When one orders hash browns one does not expect chives with... More

The staff was very accommodating to our group & they seemed happy to have us. The breakfast food was great & everyone was happy with their meal here. The location is right in the center of town too. I would definitely return here for breakfast.

Had a solo dinner after a long day of hiking. Ordered a BLT and a glass of white wine. Their house wine (there is nothing else) was marginal and the BLT was fine, but I've had better. I think their specialty is breakfast, so I might have been better off waiting until the next morning.

This café is always busy (of course we are usually there on three-day weekends and holidays) and still serves up fresh goodies and crisp bacon - every time! I love the biscuits and gravy and when they have the southwest scramble special, I recommend you try it! The only bummer on the super busy days is that they don't have... More

Good wholesome fare offered with a choice salad in rustic boom-town restaurant with local diners. You can have a meal and a drink or either alone. We were made to feel part of the clientele and not tourists - which we ere.

Pleasant, homey atmosphere with 50s and 60s music in the background. The baby back ribs were succulent and tasty. Ample portions with three sides. Chicken enchilada was spicy on a cool evening. Warm, homemade brown bread was served with the meal. The homemade peach cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream was a sweet ending to a wonderful meal.

Unless you are staying in a Bed and Breakfast, Breakfast is not easy to find in Silverton. Silverton, in general, comes alive around 11AM just before the first train from Durango arrives. It is my understanding that the Brown Bear is the only "year round" restaurant in Silverton. We ate breakfast there both mornings and will be our "go to"... More
