The Bear was built in 1991 by the Van Epps family, and we’ve been roasting our own coffee on-site since the beginning. We specialize in small batch roasts, focused on quality, freshness and drinkability– and our beans grind up to produce a beautifully full and luscious cup of joe. We start with some of the best beans and offer a limited selection of blends, varietals and roasts– to ensure the freshness which make our coffees stand out. We hope that you find the Bear a comfortable place to enjoy a nice break or a chat with friends.
In 1991, owner Sue Ann followed her dream and opened Great Bear Coffee and Los Osos Cafe. And just like back then, we still roast our own coffee beans in-house, brew our own chai, and make all your classic favorites to perfection.
