Some of the reviews...
"Overall Excellent. Great coffee, friendly staff. The blueberry Bagels are spectacular and a great vibe. Beautiful outdoor seating & puppy friendly."
"I never had a better coffee anywhere else in my life. So smooth and sweet. I always get one when I pass through Bello."
"The atmosphere here is really laid back and suits Bellingens vibe. The locals keep it busy which says alot. Coffee's consistently good and the food is real and at reasonable prices. There are really only a few good cafes in this cafe saturated town and this is definitely one."
"The Black Bear Cafe in Church Street Bellingen is a bit of an institution round these here parts. Formerly named The Boiling Billy, it was a quaint little coffee shop in a quaint little town, but since being taken over and renamed four years ago it has become a vibrant and entertaining place to share a flat white with friends or just chill with the delightful staff and some Etta James on the hi-fi.....Well Done Sofi & Dave"
"Very cool cafe - Coffee is beautiful, food is always brilliant and the staff are all easy going and friendly... Love being able to sit outside with my dog! Love, love, love!"
"Coffee was the best I tasted in town, and I went to most places. Sitting outside under the trees was beautiful, and the staff were friendly and efficient. Food was also a delight, The Bagels are to die for. A real Treat."
