I've never passed Black Bear Diner when there haven't been people lined up outside. To me, that says a lot about how popular this restaurant is. The decor is rustic cabin with original artwork on the walls, all about bears, of course. The wait staff is friendly, the prices are competitive and the servings are more than ample. Bring your appetite. The first time we dined there, everyone had a take-home bag, Breakfast is served all day. Meat lovers will enjoy the menu, and there are several vegetarian dishes from which to choose, too. In over 50 years of dining out, this is the first restaurant I've found that served pancakes piping hot...I mean melting-pat-of-butter hot! Each pancake was about 7" in diameter. My husband's vegetarian scramble was made with, easily, 6 eggs. Service wasn't as fast as I would have liked, but I attribute that to the amount of people inside. Perhaps a couple more wait staff should be added. Overall, our experience with Black Bear in Milpitas was quite enjoyable and fulfilling.
