“Good coffee shop plus food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

Great Bear is an independent coffee shop well-supported by the local community. The coffee is certainly good but the main advantage over a Starbucks is that they offer hearty and good quality food items - burritos, lasagna, quiche etc. Service is pleasant and responsive.

“Great coffee/bagel shop in LG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

While there are two coffee shops that I know of in town (and there may be more), Great Bear is the only one to visit. Looks like it's locally owned (not a chain), friendly staff, great coffee and real bagels with plenty of cream cheese. Have been here about 6 times on 3 different business trips in Jan-Mar 2013, and will keep coming back.

“Java in LG”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

This coffee shop is reminiscent of UC Berkeley coffee shops with good coffee, wifi, good sandwiches, and excellent capuccinos. These barristas take their trade seriously and it is really appreciated.

“How did I live before CCC?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I only was in town for a short time, but I may have had 3 CCC's (Chocolate Coffee Cream) during my stay. They are a guaranteed path to happiness.
