We stopped here for breakfast on our trip up to Animas Forks. It was a very nice experience. The food was very good, like home cooking, only I didn't have to cook. :-) I tried their biscuits and gravy, always an iffy thing, but turns out they make great ones. We had good service that was friendly and quick and... More

Really enjoyed lunch here. The place was so full of history, the people were more than friendly and the big stove felt great.

From the sandwiches to the roast beef dinner, it's stick to your ribs good old-fashioned home cooked food. They also have a couple of good local draft beers as well. Unlike some of the other restaurants, the Brown Bear is open on Tuesdays!

I usually order something simple to see if the food is good and how the wait staff operate. I picked a real "winner" in the unnamed waitress, she was lazy, one could tell she did not like being there, had little experience, was argumentative, and could care less if the patrons were sufficiently taken care of. This waitress even argued... More

We have been here a couple of times previously and were happy in the past. This time our lunch was disappointing. Sandwiches were okay, but the fries were cold and not very good. We will try a different place on our next trip to Silverton.

Had a good lunch at this cafe. It was packed with people from the Durango Silverton RR trip that we were on for the day. Food was good but not exceptional. Service was OK because they have a lot of people who come in twice a day. The people were friendly and it looked like a place that would be... More

Only did breakfast, take-out. Placed a very specific order that was a subset of the standard menu. Received the standard menu item at the higher price. My schedule was too tight to wait for the fix, so had to pay the higher price for food that I didn't want. The waitress that took the order had no other patrons waiting,... More

We arrived at this Cafe around 2:00 when it wasn't packed - very fortunate timing. Smiling service and great food. We had the Green Chili burger and small crock of backed french onion soup. The burger was cooked perfectly and the large piece of grilled green chili was SO TASTY! When we got home, we went shopping for those same... More
