Description: The Black Bear is the place to go for hand crafted, delicious food. Voted BEST CAFE IN ALASKA by Food Network, we proudly stand behind all that we do. Black Bear serves brunch every day until 3pm with delicious offerings such as biscuits & gravy, benedicts and classic egg breakfasts, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches on house brioche, burgers (both beefy and vegan) and our famous smoked gouda mac & cheese. Dinner offers something for everyone, from our vegan gluten-free coconut curry to wild Copper River coho salmon, braised short ribs and fresh handmade pasta with locally foraged morels. We love to find the best local and seasonal Alaskan products and bring them to the people. We offer a full espresso bar, crafting locally roasted SteamDot coffee, as well as shakes and fresh fruit smoothies. You can expect fresh pastries coming out of our in-house bakery throughout the day (some vegan, gluten-free too). And our deli case is always full of quick grab and go items to take on your adventures. If you're coming off a busy day, just grab a local beer or glass of wine to enjoy while you linger on our deck, breathe deep and take in the mountains. Black Bear offers something for everyone, whether you are on an indulgent dream vacation, or keeping on the healthy side. Locals love us, and you will too.

Lovely wholesome food, we had soup and taco, reasonably priced and pleasant helpful staff. If we'd have been staying longer we would have returned.

Great place to grab a healthy, gluten free snack before going into Denali. First time that I ever had chia pudding which was excellent. Enjoyed the sweet potato and brown rice bowl, too.

As a coffee lover, it became a routine for me to stop by here at least twice a day during my stay. Pleasant place to grab coffee & pastries/sandwiches in the mornings, coffee and occasional? dessert again after dinner. Simpily a great place with good people serving good food on the go!!

great coffee, and to-go sandwiches. perfect way to prep for a day of hiking in Denali. They've got a tasty-looking menu and indoor/outdoor seating.

The Breakfast Burrito was a fantastic way to start the day. Order your food, and go sit outside- they will find you when it is ready! Service was great!
