Really 4.5 stars, as this was a great breakfast! This is the first Black Bear Diner, a restaurant we've passed many times (and in many locations) and honestly never even considered going to. Our mistake. Our last morning in Mount Shasta and we were on...More

I'm so glad to see this chain coming to So Cal. The food is fantastic, generous portions and a reasonable price. The tri-tip is soooo tender. Great service too.

Food was very good, had the small club with a side salad. Not sure what was small about it. Lots of dressing choices including a couple of low fat ones. Breakfast appears to be available all the time.

I didn't see anything like that when we were there. But just now I looked on the lunch menu and it says "gluten free bun upon request". I'd call ahead to be sure.

Our Mt. Shasta diner has the distinction of being where it all began. Who knew a little dream in a tiny town would expand and attract fans from eight (and counting) states? Through it all, this diner has held its own as a small but mighty gateway to this charming town. Just off the I-5, it feeds locals as well as visitors here to play at Lake Siskiyou or Mt. Shasta Ski & Snowboard Park.
