Nice breakfast place

Great basics here--omelettes, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, etc. Generous servings. We always prefer eating at local or family-run restaurants, and this one feels like a real locals place. Decor not fancy--lots of bears!

Although I don't go out often for breakfast, every time I have had breakfast at the Hungry Bear Restaurant, it has been near perfect! This morning was no exception. Sunday mornings are a busy time here, but we hit it just right to walk right in and get a table. The restaurant was full, but turnover was fast as people... More

This place came up on top from a few different sites so we tried it. When you enter its a sit where you want so definitely a very family casual environment. There were so many locals there which in my opinion matters. We were greeted with menus and coffee fairly quickly. There's a good selection. I ordered the veggie omelette... More

After crossing from Canada we met some friends for breakfast. Hungry Bear is a cute place, very reasonable prices, but just average quality food. The patrons seemed very happy to be there.

Breakfasts here are great. The menu is varied and the wait staff is wonderful. They will do special requests cheerfully - this is a popular early morning place. I think their lunch and dinner menus are good, nothing fancy, but well cooked, hot food. They have great muffins and wonderful pies!

We'd heard of this place and thought the local buzz was likely inflated. So we tried it this past Saturday at lunch. And then we returned Sunday morning for breakfast. Oh yeah... It really was that good. Huge portions, tasty options and good variety. Really, it's too much food for a single person with an average appetite. I guess they... More

My mom and I stopped at this diner on our way home from work for dinner. My mom ordered the Spaghetti w/meatsauce, garlic bread, & toss salad special for $8.50. I ordered swiss and mushroom burger with fries and mac salad for $8.95. The food was good diner food and the portions were huge. We definitely got our money's worth.... More

As my daughter told me this is a family tradition when dropping the girls off at Suny Plattsburgh, food is great fast service and everyone is so friendly.
