Found this place accidentally. Great service and food. We was able to eat at the picnic table and enjoy the midday sun. Great chicken salad!

Eating here feels like going over to your grandma’s for lunch. Always friendly and fast service, and the food is a hit every time.

Greeted immediately as we entered. This was truly service with a smile. Got the pancakes; actually I got ONE rather than the double stack. We will definitely go back next visit.

We stopped in because it was listed on Trip Advisor... stopped in for a coffee and a cinnamon roll. We were greeted with a booming GOOD MORNING and love everything we purchased. Wonderful prices, wonderful people. We’ll be back for breakfast on our next trip!

Grilled smoked bologna, need I say more? Rocky Top sandwich is a must have, friendly people and a nice clean restaurant.

Long wait. Disappointing portions. Way overpriced. Mediocre quality breakfast. I don't get the good ratings at all.

We are annual visitors to the area and we’re always looking for a local place to try. This place was great! The pancakes were huge and so good! The staff was friendly and fun. We highly recommended Lil Black Bear Cafe!

Yes. We showed up late for breakfast around 11:15. I asked walking in if I was too late for one of the thick pancakes that I had been reading about. They said that it was never too late.

I can't help you here...I'm in Norfolk. Sorry. But I can guarantee it is worth the wait.
