We arrived for breakfast on a Wednesday around 8:00 am. Was very busy with few wait staff. Can understand this is a small seasonal town, so service will be slower. Everyone loved what they ordered. I had an omelet with 3 extras added. 1 item was not included,but waitress removed from bill. 1 person had a stack of Blueberry pancakes.... More

I am an owner of several galleries in the southwest. My family arrived in this area for vacation and decided to eat breakfast at the Brown Bear Cafe. We stood at the door for 12 minutes without no greeting. We left because of the unwelcoming service. The following day, I called the restaurant to speak to the manager about the... More

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
