Black Bear Crossings Café began in 1997 as a neighborhood coffee house, known for its homemade pastries, gourmet coffee drinks, and free community meeting rooms. With a move into the Historic Como Lakeside Pavilion, our simple café has evolved into a gourmet cafeteria. Enjoy an ice cream cone while taking in a free summer concert. Rent a paddle boat on the lake. During winter, cozy up to the fireplace with a hot bowl of soup. Meet colleagues for lunch, catch up with friends over breakfast, or simply relax with a glass of wine and homemade pizza.
Our café, located on the first floor, has ample seating, with an additional 40 seats located on the Mezzanine (second floor). The Mezzanine is the perfect space for casual gatherings or celebrations such as birthdays, retirement parties, card clubs, Red Hat gatherings, tour bus lunch stops, etc…. Please phone ahead when planning, and allow our staff to be meet your groups’ catering needs.
