The food here is wonderful. Of all the coffee shops in Hilo this one if my favorite. The staff is fun and friendly and fill the air with jokes and laughter. Even if you just come in for a cup of coffee you are welcomed and treated like an old friend.

It is difficult to find a reasonably priced breakfast that is reasonably healthy. Bears fits the bill

What a cute find! This wee restaurant was right around the corner from the hostel my bf and I stayed (Hilo Bay Hostel which I've reviewed). We went for breakfasts, and for the great atmosphere.
The waiter/greeter, sort of everything person was super friendly. He popped pieces of an orange that he was peeling and enjoying, into our mouths to share with us, and then came and sat down for a chat!
The other great thing about Bear's is their "scrambled" eggs. They use the steam from the espresso machine to get them all light, fluffy and fat-free.
Also, the biscuits and gravy, in a a word; yum!
The place has yummy food, a great friendly welcoming vibe and it is insanely affordable!

What a great place for breakfast! The Iced Toddy Coffee is the best a must order! The souffled eggs are light and fluffy never had them before Bears. The server can't remember her name right now was great she was an older hippy type and really knew her stuff. Terry the owner was a hoot!

Good spot for breakfast and coffee. The spinach buster was delicious! Try the fresh half papaya, too!
