Never been in the Bear before and was looking forward to our visit as we're both veggies; food ok, had paninis and coffee; but the young man standing near the top of the stairs turned to look at us then turned his back on us without saying a word!! I had to ask if we could have a table and... More

Sat in the big old window and had a lovely big bean burger with blue cheese and then an amazing chocolate and stout cake... made even better by effectively getting two portions because apparently the first one they cut off looked too small.

I've known The Bear Cafe for years..I worked there many years ago when I first moved up north. However, since those dim and distant days, the place has grown and improved beyond recognition. The food is top quality, well presented, and being organic, politically correct, and in the town where the Incredible Edible lifestyle rules, caters for all tastes for... More

Fantastic old building housing a well stocked organic produce/foodie supermarket heaven, stocked with fresh locally baked sourdough, good craft beer and wines and treats galore. Upstairs is the cafe/restaurant. Open views looking down on Todmorden and the most amazing breakfast for miles (Shakshuka eggs!!) spiced Lebanese sauce with tomatoes, peppers and saffron with a baked egg served with toasted sourdough...

My first time here, and it won't be my last! The food all looked delicious. My choice did not disappoint. The staff were all lovely - very friendly and attentive. Will certainly be going back. Thank you, Bear Café, for a real lunchtime treat.

This cafe boasts fresh, organic, seasonal foods & does not disappoint. I found it hard to decide on my lunch selection as everything was so appetising. Being adventurous I went for things I'd never had before - Borscht ( gorgeous beetroot soup ) and a warm mezzala flatbread with feta cheese & sun dried tomatoes. My friend had a bean... More

Really nice vegan range of food, friendly service and good value. Waitress asked us to move to a smaller table, and gave us free beer! Should become mandatory!

Went to Todmorden for the day and decided to have lunch here after seeing as we drove past into town. As a vegetarian I am so used to not having much choice it took me a long time to decide. All the menu items sounded delicious and there were also lots of specials on the board as well. I went... More
