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

We ate here 3 different times. Food is good and fresh, service is excellent, and you get your food quickly. Reasonably priced.

While in Silverton we had dinner and breakfast at the Brown Bear. The staff was very friendly and talked about what was happening in Silverton. Service was fast and efficient. The food was good and large portions. It could be a little crazy when the train comes in and everyone is trying to fit in lunch and sightseeing. There was... More

I had prime rib for dinner. I ordered medium but it was well done and on the tough side. Salad bar was good as was the service.

It was unclear whether or not we should seat ourselves, but the first of three overwhelmed wait staff told us to wait with more than just a little hostility. We sat, ordered from what seemed a nicer young woman, received our food in a timely manner, and it was good. When it was time to go, our waitresses mood shifted... More

I decided to try the Brown Bear Cafe on Sunday after reading several reviews on tripadvisor. The corned beef hash and eggs with sourdough toast and diner hash browns were just the way I like them and the waitress was terrific. Now, the corned beef hash is out of a can, but that is what I grew up on and... More

This is a really neat cafe in the historic district of Silverton. The atmosphere was cozy and and the staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations in the area. The food was really good, particularly the french onion soup. We returned the next day for more soup on a cold day! It gets busy around lunchtime when the train... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this place for breakfast. The service was awesome and all of our food was great. We left plenty full and highly recommend it. It was like the small town atmosphere we are used to in Texas.
