Black Bear Co-Op

Located for years in the Vandora Theater building along Cherokee Street, just west of Jefferson Avenue, Black Bear Bakery has been baking organic, whole-grain breads and bagels, cookies and cakes, and pies and pastries since 1998. The worker-owned and -operated shop also serves a neighborhood brunch on Saturdays featuring an assortment of morning and midday favorites such as buckwheat pancakes, eggs, quiches and various vegetarian and vegan items. Their café hours change on occasion, so it is not a bad idea to call ahead before heading out to eat. Lunch items include vegetarian entrées, such as a tempeh Rueben with swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing, and a vegetarian muffaletta with vegetarian sausage, veggies and flavored cream cheese on a muffaletta roll.
