I had breakfast with a friend, coffee was good, food was good, but the place seemed pretty dingy. When I went into the bathroom there was a shower curtain hanging right in front of where you look as you walk in... that was weird....

We have come to love stopping at Black Bear up and down I5 when we travel. We had huge portions (chicken pot pie, ribs, avocado turkey sandwich) and always good quality. We like to get out, rest catch a hot drink, and a fantastic dessert too before a few more hours on he road. Friendly servers and really hustling to... More

We stopped while traveling. I was slightly disappointed in charges for a side of sausage and one pancake for a 1 year old. Service was okay. Not great but we weren't ignored. Food was good and adult portions were large. The bathrooms were clean but really had a strong odor. All and all it was okay. Might try Black Bear... More
