Classic American diner

The food here was good, I had the Ruben and my husband had the burger. The service was excellent and the building had a nice historic charm to it. I was too full to try the homemade pie, but it looked wonderful.

Stopped here for lunch and glad we did. Historic and full of memorabilia. Good menu for simple eats and treats. From peanut butter & jelly, grilled cheese to great hamburgers, something for everyone at reasonable prices.

Visited twice this week for breakfast. Specials were always awesome. Hostess took drink order, however didn't understand options clearly (asked for pineapple juice, said she had none when it was clearly in the cooler).

I was able to get a substantial breakfast made from scratch at a very reasonable price. The service was excellent and friendly. I hope to be there again for dinner some day.

Best burger I have ever had. Beautiful town it was around 67 degrees. Drive from Durango was beatiful. I will definitely come here again.

The Brown Bear Cafe is on the main drag through Silverton in the midst of the shops. The place has a rustic atmosphere that goes with Silverton. It offers a variety of sandwiches, salads, and soups that should suit about anyone. It's not inexpensive. You'll spend about $9 for a sandwich with a side. I recommend a cup of chili... More

Silverton closes down in the winter and the Brown Bear was the only place open in town when we drove through. It is family friendly and has wonderful, friendly service. The food was typical cafe style grub, it hit the spot on a chilly night but wasn't particularly memorable. The building is original though and the bar is historic as... More

We stopped in here as it was the only place open in Silverton, and was pleasantly surprised. Great burgers and a cool 1800's ambiance.
