We had breakfast here twice and loved it. Its not the most creative menu but the portion sizes and quality are fantastic. We loved the egg soufflé. The staff is awesome. Stop in and enjoy a lovely breakfast.

I had the souffle eggs, very fluffy and yummy, with cheese and spinach on a bagel. It was really good. The place is artsy and feels rustic. It's been there since the 80s

Bears was the first coffee shop that opened in Hilo with real espresso, and they are still around serving. Friendly service, and as a special, from time to time they have musical entertainment, this particular morning, there was a man singing and playing a ukulele....More

It's small, but it's a good, laid back place for breakfast. Steamed eggs were good (although indistinguishable from scrambled eggs) and a good-sized portion. Fruit and yogurt was also pretty good. Coffee was just OK and not especially hot. But the place is very casual,...More

I wasn't really hungry but knew it would be a long day, so I chose coffee cake and a coffee mocha for my breakfast. Jeffrey had espresso steamed eggs and a bagel.

We weren't that hungry when we stumbled onto Bear's Coffee and all I needed was one bottled water, which they had and which I drank outside while seated in their outdoor chair. Would do that again, and maybe more.

Great surprise to find the cafe with live music on a Sunday morning, wonderful soufflé eggs and food under 10.00 per person!

My first time eating here and they did everything right in my opinion. The table did not wobble, we were greeted and served water very quickly, the coffee was good, our food order was taken quickly, the food was good (breakfast, biscuits, gravy and eggs)...More

Business apparently open for breakfast and lunch. Was closing at 3 PM day we stopped. We ordered soup and a sandwich. Food was OK (maybe not exceptional). Prices were good by Hawaiian standards, sandwiches were $6-8.
