I was looking for a classic breakfast—you know, the hearty kind farmers might eat. More eggs, bacon and potatoes, not so much fancy omelets and frou-frou French toast. I drove to Woodland last weekend and enjoyed the Savory Café, yet that is a ways to drive for breakfast. This Sunday in church I remembered the Black Bear Diner. It is a technically a chain with locations in eight states. In the Delta you can find a hearty breakfast at Black Bear Diner in Tracy, Oakley, Suisun City and Davis.
The coffee is good and Doreen was a friendly, efficient waitress. The restaurant was full of families eating before or after a soccer game. I ate at the counter rather than wait 20 minutes for a table. I went for a smaller version of the classic breakfast and it was delicious.
