Echo the Black Bear Diner a few times every year. Their food is good tasting, their prices are about $8-$10 a plate. However, you do get a lot of food for your dollar! I am a hungry hippo and today I had to box my...More

I think the cost for breakfast at this place is a little on the higher side; however, the amount of food you get in return helps buffer the cost. The environment is woodsy and log cabin look/feel. I have been back a few times.

Sitting at the edge of Orem’s newly refurbished University Mall and just minutes from BYU’s Provo campus, this diner makes the perfect stop for shoppers, game-goers, and families. Our spacious dining area will accommodate large groups while our teams provide the small town, personalized service you’d expect from a hometown diner. We’re a little hidden on the southeastern side of the University Mall parking lot (800 E and University Parkway) but well worth the hunt.
