A return visit. One of my favourite places and worth the trek out. A great range if dishes including plenty of vegan options. Locally and organically sourced where possible. I had the sunshine salad and it was delicious.

Light and airy, more importantly clean. The staff were efficient and the food delicious, meat was not missed at all, we are not vegetarian- all in all this is an delightful place that we would happily return to

Back in the area after a break of two years, we walked along the canal from Hebden Bridge to Todmorden to revisit the Bear Cafe. Needless to say we weren't disappointed. This is a very special cafe - friendly service and great food in a spacious and characterful building. We ordered two flat whites and shared a small platter of... More

I have eaten here many times with my vegan brother. I love the vegetarian food especially the cakes and my brother has said he loves the vegan food served there too. I think it's just a little bit pricey for what you get but the food speaks for itself because we keep going back!

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.
