great coffee

Wanted to enjoy an espresso drink in Silverton and wound up at the Brown Bear. Cute shop that filled our coffee order and sent us on our way. Stroll down Greene St. as you partake and enjoy the mountain freshness.

Unplanned breakfast stop that turned out to be good food. My husband had biscuits and gravy that were really homemade. My green chili breakfast burrito was great. Our friends food was equally good in fact went back the next morning. Best food we had in Silverton.

We came here for dinner on Sunday evening when many other restaurants in town were closed. I had a turkey club sandwich and my husband had a green chile cheeseburger. The bacon on my sandwich was over done and skimpy. Fries were too well cooked and tasted more of old oil than the potato. My husband said his burger was... More

We visit the Brown Bear any time we pass through Silverton. It never disappoints. This trip over a long weekend we had two dinners and a breakfast there. The staff is great, the food is delicious, and the ambiance is spot on. I hope it ever changes.

We had the house specialty blue berry pancakes and they were delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and the place was packed for breakfast. Would certainly return there next time I am in Silverton.

When in Silverton stop by the Brown Bear Cafe. My husband and I had hearty, delicious breakfasts there this morning. My eggs on toast with hash browns were done to perfection. My husband enjoyed his omelette. Folks at neighboring tables had pancakes that were fluffy, mile high servings that looked scrumptious. Our waitress was very pleasant, efficient, and friendly. In...

This was our last meal for the trip to Silverton before we left. I had blueberry pancakes. Yum Yum. Everyone else really enjoyed their meals too. My only complaint is it took a little longer than I expected to get our food. But, once it got there, the food was great. The waitresses were great as well.

My brother and I each had a bacon cheeseburger. The beef & bacon were both fresh and well cooked. I got the fries, which were basic fries, nothing special. Overall, it was a good meal and we'll be back.
