This was a halfway point meeting place for myself and a friend and we loved our couple of hours here. The food is very fresh and the staff discrete but attentive when needed. All food is organic and freshly prepared with very reasonable prices. I had the soup & panini deal (£6) and it was more than enough for a... More

My friend and I only stayed in Todmorden for two and a half days but the fact that we visited The Bear three times shows how much we liked it. I hadn't been to Todmorden in over ten years but I remembered the cafe and it's interesting health food store downstairs. The decor had changed and although it is nice... More

Taken for my birthday by my partner - extremely good food with a great choice. Although we are both veggies (so the menu was a delight - we could choose anything!), the choice and quality would be appreciated by the carnivores as well. We shared a starter (dips and chips) and then shared two wraps with a great choice of... More

I like this cafe. In fact I like it a lot. I'm a full-blooded, carnivorous male and I still like this cafe. It doesn't matter to me if it's for veggies or those other strange beings, vegans. If the food is good .... the food is good .... and I'll go and eat there. OK the Bear Burger has a... More

I had a lovely lunch on Sunday with really delicious salads and a great Strawberry and Cream Muffin. The staff were very friendly, the service good and the cafe has a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. Lots of vegan choices and good value for money. I loved the local ingredients policy and the shop below is also worth a visit.

The food is good quality, well presented and imaginative. Great relaxed atmosphere. The Bear always satisfies the appetite. From brunch to dinner - it's always spot on. Above the veggie deli shop that also provides great quality food and good service.

Went for lunch on Wednesday. The food was really nice and really well presented. Soup and panini for £6 was a great deal. Staff were polite and friendly

Overall a pleasure to dine here shame baker was late so substituted bagel was soggy with butter and where were the herbs in the herby eggs. Poached egg on spicy tomato salsa lovely but micro herbs too micro to taste. Again bread substituted. Venue excellent and would go again.

I ate here recently with my partner and we were both very pleased. I had the Aussie burger which was delicious. I was also pleased to read on the menu that all the vegetables used are organic. The cakes are also highly recommended, they use unusual ingredients (such as beetroot and stout!) but they work really well. Very happy that... More
