“Vegetarian cafe par excellence”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Outstanding in every way, if this cafe was in fashionable suburbia the cost of the meal would easily be doubled. Almost all the food is locally sourced and the dishes that are produced are imaginative and incredibly tasty. The ambience, staff and service compliment the very high standard of food. Situated in the heart of Todmorden on the A6033 quite close to the Rochdale Canal above a very well stocked health food shop, it's the perfect place to relax and give yourself a culinary treat.

“Friendly and relaxing place to eat . . . With extras attached !”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Exceptional vegetarian cafe, utilising many locally sources products. Exciting & interesting menu, even for carnivores. Friendly staff & relaxed atmosphere; usually busy but tables/sofas are not crushed together. Different components of meals "tantalise the jaded tastebuds" of even the most experienced traveller. Parking: free on streets, or local Pay & Display.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Put simply, the Bear Cafe is an ethical dream-turned-reality. All produce is sourced locally, the ambience is wonderfully welcoming and the service is impeccable. Realistic prices and tasty and imaginative food and drink too. If only other cafes would follow the fantastic lead set by the Bear!

“Not a Vegetarian”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I'm a carnivore at heart but love visiting this place, great coffee, friendly staff, chilled atmosphere and the food is Fantastic, always try something new and have never once had a bad experience. The food is of the highest quality and the cakes well you simply can't resist them, I also love the fact they support local businesses a great example of ethical, sustainable business done the right way. Never been? Not a Vegetarian? don't worry you won't be disappointed.
