Café Russian Bear is officially the valley's only Russian restaurant (hell, I'd bet a Benny that it's the only Russian restaurant in
the whole state). Owner Oleg Mironov says he and his wife make absolutely everything on the menu from scratch. That means
the borscht, the potato pancakes, the cabbage rolls and the Russian crepes. Yep, Russian crepes, which, according to Mironov
are much better than French crepes because they use milk and less egg instead of water. The daily lunch special includes one
of these fluffier Russian crepes, as well as a bowl of borscht and a drink for nine bucks. Mironov also whips up a different house
special for Friday and Saturday (last week's was beef stroganoff), and the house coffee is Flying M's beloved Purple Bean.
My grandma would be proud
I almost cried today after I had cabbage rolls at Russian Bear. My family left Ukraine when I was a little boy and I always
remembered my grandma’s cabbage rolls so tender and tasty. Today we finally decided to visit Russian café and I wanted to try
my favorite dish. I was so concerned and afraid that my childhood memories might be ruined. But cabbage rolls was so good
that for a second I thought that my grandma was cooking in the kitchen. I want to thank from the bottom of my heart the owners
of Russian Bear for such a wonderful treat. I will definitely bring all my friend to try your cabbage rolls. Wish you best. Aaron.

Home cooked, fantastic
A little more expensive than what we're used to in the valley, but certainly worth the money. Excellent service, super excellent.
You're getting a home cooked meal here. Not some frozen bag of cisco, reheated and plated. Their beer selection is up and
down, but thats because its good, and hard to keep in stock. Stay away from the Baltika #6, seriously don't drink it (its my
favorite and if you don't drink it, there's more for me)

I am Russian and I love to eat at The Russian Bear Café. Sometimes when I am to busy I get some food "to go". The owners
at the Café are very nice and friendly and they make real Russian food. I like everything what they make. If you want to try real
authentic homemade Russian food The Russian Bear Café is the place.
