Bear Mountain Coffee House & Gallery

Bear Mountain Coffee House & Gallery Review

Once the rambunctious West Bar, this vintage 1900 building has been restored, revealing formerly hidden charms, like the original plank floors. The dancehall side is now a coffeehouse, which serves tempting blueberry muffins and hearty lunch fare, such as roast beef panini, accented with pepper-jack cheese and Dijon mustard. The Old Crow mirror from the former bar hangs on one wall, and bookish sorts should note the collection of rare and unusual Southwest lit for sale. Be sure to step through to the bar side, which displays local artwork (Holly Modine's cleverly formed baskets, Debra Nudson's brilliantly hued rag rugs). The rack of travel brochures and friendly service makes this a useful stop for those heading farther along U.S. 60.
