We drove up from Durango for a quick road-trip. Early January in Silverton can be cold to say the least. It was great to see that the Brown Bear Cafe was open. We popped in for a quick lunch, and the waitress was very nice. As a local, she shared some information with us about the town. The meal was... More

We stopped in for lunch after driving up from Durango. The town of Silverton was pretty much closed up but we were lucky this little place was open. We were in just a few days before Christmas, it was cold so we opted for their soup of the day which was a delicious vegetable soup with a popover. Prices were... More

Stopped in for breakfast after leaving the town of Ouray, had been there for 4 days. Silverton is a great little town, very picturesque. As I was riding down mainstreet, don't blink, I asked a few people and was told the food was good at the Brown Bear Cafe. Good enough for me, so I parked the bike, and took... More

Silverton, Colorado, including its many shops and restaurants is a great place to visit. The narrow gauge railroad running from Durango, CO to Silverton, CO up narrow mountain passes is not for the fainthearted and will close for the season on October 25th but making plans for next year is highly recommended. The meals our small group had at the... More

Homey place, good food, time to sit and chat after a good meal. "that is where all the locals eat" is what we were told prior to the trip; and so it is. Try it.

Brown Bear was one of the restaurants the Silverton Train tour recommended for lunch. I think your best approach is to walk into a local Silverton store and ask where they eat, Brown Bear probably would not be a the top of the list. This place clearly survives on the train/bus tourists and has likely gotten used to not having... More
