Redeeming part of Black Bear is the service. Coffee is poor. Breakfasts are large, but just OK, nothing special. My hash browns were nearly burnt this time.

as usual, this was an above normal quality and satisfied better than most restaurants in the area for comparable price. You can make heart healthy choices if your dietary needs require them. The desserts are exceptionally good. Excellent choice for us. Our waitress was fantastic.

The breakfasts are all very good, the eggs and hashbrowns aren't swimming in grease. The orange juice is fresh squeezed. As the portions are massive. What else could you want in a breakfast.

The city of Gresham is absolutely gorgeous, providing landscapes and skylines that are out of this world. The Black Bear Diner has been designed to fit into all this, and we like to think that we’ve done a pretty darn good job. In addition to the bears craving attention at our entrance, inside you’ll find an awesome staff, delicious food, and a whole lot more bear paraphernalia.
