I've been going here for years and usually absolutely love it, but recently it just hasn't been on par with previous visits.

I'm generally adverse to vegetarian food- you can always add chicken in my opinion but this place is lovely. An deli come apothecary downstairs and a fab dining space upstairs l, the bear is spot on for lunch time with family, kids or small ones. Amazing muffins and interesting lunch options!

Located on Rochdale road Bear cafe is a nice little cafe to take a bite at. With a little shop at the bottom I would say bear cafe is definitely one of the best cafes in todmorden.
