Description: The best Mexican food in Milford.
Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Black Bear Cafe has some of the best mexican fare we've ever enjoyed -- anywhere -- including Mexico! The chef is often there, and takes great pride in serving authentic, well-prepared, perfectly spiced Mexican cuisine. The server/cashier always has a pleasant demeanor, and the place is fast becoming a local favorite. So, if you're in the mood for extremely good Mexican food, this place is golden!

Now, atmosphere is another story. If you're expecting a fine-dining Mexican restaurant, or even something along the lines of the chain restaurants that serve Mexican (Chilis, Chevys, etc), you will be disappointed. The interior seating has a counter, a glass-front refrigerator for beverages, and a few small tables (including some high-tops). It is NOTHING fancy. Now, I should mention that in warm weather seasons, there is a nice outdoor backyard where you can dine -- including a hammock if you want a quick siesta -- but the restaurant needs to clean-up the breezeway getting back to that area (which is cluttered, and often has an unpleasant odor).

So, food gets a 100%; exterior seating gets a 85%; interior seating gets a 40%. No matter what, though, I'd still go there for the food -- it is truly the best!

Authentic Mex. in Milford - these folks do a really great job! Excellent service, with fresh, well-presented and tasty food. I have eaten here several times and always had a good experience. Prices are reasonable and the folks here are friendly - a great atmosphere.

This food here was really great! Very fresh and authentic. The chef was there and they were interested in our experience. They are getting know through word of mouth and they are just nice people. This is a little cafe... Go for the good food and the nice people. Great addition to the town of Millford and by the way, you can BYOB... They appreciated that we paid cash!

We stopped for a lunch after biking and sat in the back outside. Ate the most heavenly fresh guacamole and watched the butterflies on the butterfly bush. The food is great, people nice, and the prices are right.
