Probably the best breakfast spot in town. Excellent pancakes with multiple syrup choices and very delicious omelets. Hash browns/potatoes delicious too! Quick and attentive service especially when there are so many guests. My only quibble would be that there are only two single restrooms which can lead to a LONG wait (i.e. more than 10 minutes) during peak times.

The kids all loved their food, and the service was impeccable. I ordered 4 box lunches and they prepared them while we had breakfast. Despite it being busy, everything came hot, at the same time, and with a short wait.

Food was fine, but nothing special. The service was pretty slow. Took forever just to place our order, it was like they forgot they hadn't taken it yet. Two other tables that came in after us got their food before or order was even taken. It wasn't busy either. We won't be going back.

Had a fantastic experience here the other day. I went with a friend to get breakfast on a Saturday around 10am, which was a very very busy time, but our wait time to get a table was no more than 10 minutes. Our server (I forget her name, but she was an older lady with black hair) was extremely friendly... More

The Running Bear was crazy busy even on a weekday morning. Even so, our order was taken quickly and the food was ready in a jif. Our server made a big to do over my one year old granddaughter and over all we were very happy with the food choices.

Went here for breakfast. Place was busy, which is always a good sign. We had pancakes, eggs, bacon and hash browns. All were very good. Hash browns were great. Price was average. Service was good considering how busy they were. Lots of menu choices for both food and beverages. Seperate beverage menu which includes lots of custom latte and mocha... More

Coffee was good, biscuits and gravy were only so-so. The place is friendly and clean and the service was very pleasant.
