Great price for breakfast

Bears is a diner style coffee shop and serves good food at the best prices I have paid in Hawaii. I had their steamed eggs with ham and they were ok. Not something I would eat often but worth sampling. I like what they are trying to do here. Waitress was a bit slow when there was only a few... read more

We had superb eggs Benedict and went back the next day for fruit, yoghurt and granola. The staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful - a real attraction for foreign visitors 7,000 miles from home like us. The free WiFi was fast and efficient, unlike the dismal offering in our hotel on Banyan Drive. Bears is in the older, more interesting... More

We were looking for a locally owned breakfast spot in Hilo and were fortunate enough to stumble onto Bears' Coffee and Deli. Very down to earth little spot with extremely helpful wait staff and a resident gecko who gets treats of sugar water fed to him by the waitresses! The day we were in, the owner was there and she...

Came in for an early breakfast with my brother. Food and service were great. The waffle was super tasty.

Small, sunny, cute and clean, family friendly in Old Town Hilo by shops, artisan gallery, and 'round the corner from the art museum and a park square. With 2 grandchildren in tow, we found ourselves in Bear's Coffee for a good late breakfast with cheery waitstaff who were especially accommodating to our hungry group. Food good, coffee good, good location... More

We ate breakfast here one morning at the recommendation of our accommodation provider. Great little cafe with friendly staff, very accommodating to our needs. The waffles were the best I have had in a long time!

We stopped in Bears for a cup of coffee. They are friendly and serve up a good cup of local coffee. There's inside and outdoor seating, too. Fun place!

We stopped here to have a quick breakfast and we loved it! We have been welcomed nicely and we got immediately coffee and water. We had an egg Burrito and a triple egg with spinach, ham and cedar, all very good and tasty! We took also a slice of brownies that was also delicious! Definitely a place to go!

We had a yummy breakfast here before driving down to Volcano National Park on a Sunday. Luck for us it opened at 7am. Everything is cooked up fresh and the service was good. We both had the breakfast burrito for $5.95 a bargain.

Loved this place. My daughters had the waffles and cleaned their plates. The coffee was excellent. My husband had the Mexican-style coffee. I had the iced coffee that had been cold-brewed (my preferred way of making it) and it was delicious. The owner and wait staff could not have been friendlier. Wish I could go back!
