“Nice stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Large portions and mostly very good, with good service. Always very busy with lots of families, so it is pretty noisy and crowded.

Can't go wrong eating at any of the Black Bear Diners in Northern California. Good size portions at a reasonable price.

“Blackberry cobbler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We weren't really hungry enough for a meal but wanted coffee and something sweet so we stopped here. The coffee was good and the "blackbeary" cobbler was REALLY good. Service was friendly and prompt.
