I recently did a course and stayed nearby that The Bear catered for. What a truly amazing culinary experience. Really fabulous food. I could not recommend them enough.

We were down to Rochdale from Edinburgh on a day's business and had to kill time. Did not have high expectations for lunch as no local knowledge but discovered Todmorden and googled cafés there. After a tricky time finding the Bear Cafe (the shop front is beautiful but doesn't mention the word 'bear'! we eventually got there and had a delicious lunch (the gratin and the strata). Loved the hot apple and cinnamon drink too we are not vegetarians but really enjoyed this place - friendly, warm, and fabulous menu. Took cakes home too. Shop downstairs lovely and interesting and the girl serving was very friendly. Wish we lived closer! We would be there every week

Our fourth visit to The Bear café and we would always make it our first choice of stop to eat heading across to Leeds or the east coast, even if it usually means a detour off the motorway. I've never really thought about it being a veggie café ... (someone mentioned this below) and does it matter if the food is excellent? No, not at all. Plenty of vegan and gluten free options too. Very child friendly which might not suit some people as there are often little 'uns scurrying about.

Lovely freshly prepared, home-made food. Unusual choices and an excellent and varied menu. Bloomin' marvellous vegan chocolate and beetroot cake :)
