Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Had a huge breakfast here while in town for vacation. Food was so good and you get a lot of it! All the bear stuff was cute, too.

“GREAT FOOD”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We ate breakfast here 2 days and it is great! The restaurant is so cute with all the bear memorabilia and the food is very large in portion and tastes great. Try the eggs Benedict they are out of this world.

“Very good!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We came here from our trip up north from L.A.

As you can imagine, we were starved.

The breakfast we had was large and we forced ourselves to finish it.

However, the breakfast did take 25 minutes to come so one less star but it was busy.

We will be coming back.

“Not bad, first experience better than second.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We had a heck of a time finding breakfast on the weekdays in Sonoma. This was across the street from the hotel and easy access made it where we went for eggs twice during our visit. The first visit was OK food wise and great service wise. The favorite in the group was the eggs benedict, the other eggs were cooked a little dry. The second visit, the food was better and the service was iffy. The food improved because we knew to order items a little "wet" but the waitress was bordeline unfriendly and we were seated at an out of the way table with flies. We'd probably get off our duffs and head to McDs next visit.

“A Bearful of wonders”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

You will never, ever leave this place hungry. The servings are abundant and delicious. There are many selections from which to choose and each one is perfect in itself. Polish it off with a Bear Paw or other delicacy, all invite a return to this place...solo or with a group. Wonderful !!!!
