Black Bear Diner Just Off the Sonoma Plaza

Black Bear Diners and small towns of the Western United States seem almost synonymous.  With 42 properties in California, and another 26 scattered in another 7 states these guys have been serving up home-cooked meals for nearly 20 years.  The service is friendly, the food hearty and delicious, and the signature chain-saw bear sculptures adorable.  And it’s wheelchair accessible.

Community Cafe
