Community growler: More than just your favorite family eatery

Federal Way’s Black Bear Diner gives back to the community that supports it

If you’ve taken driving trips around the Western United States, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced the Black Bear Diner difference: hearty breakfasts served all day and a kid’s menu that’s tough to beat.

But did you know that the locally owned Black Bear eatery in Federal Way, with 50 managers and staff serving up your favorites, supports the community that supports them?

“Whether it’s sponsoring Little League teams, or seeing some of our staff involved in things like the Break the Chains 5K to help battle human trafficking, we’re giving back to the community,” says owner/operator Danny Banwait.

Here’s other ways Black Bear Diner helps out (click links for more details):

  1. Bears Brew Back This program is a partnership that supports humanitarian projects and families in Nicaragua, where the beans for the Java City coffee you love are sourced.
  2. Dine and Donate If you’ve got a cause you’re raising money for, Black Bear Diner wants to help out. Get a group together and come down for a meal: a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated back to your charity.
  3. Request a donation or sponsorship You can inquire about such items as gift certificates and/or gift baskets for raffle prizes, silent auctions and event prizes for your fundraiser. You can also request a Bear mascot appearance, or an event or sports team sponsorship.

Your place to find comfort food

Here in Federal Way, locals and visitors alike have been satisfying their growling hunger since 2008, enjoying such favorites as the Bigfoot Chicken Fried Steak and Egg or the multitude of omelettes and scrambles on the breakfast menu, and the variety of burger, sandwich and entree options for lunch and dinner.

General manager Tanisha Breedlove and her staff enjoy creating and serving up meals made with fresh ingredients, and delicious desserts, including staff baker Maria’s freshly made fruit pies.

Serving you right, morning to night

“From a service perspective, we look at it like we’re inviting people into our home, not just our restaurant,” says Banwait. “Many of our staff have been with us for a long time and we’re really like a big family.”

The restaurant on Pacific Highway South is open early at 6 a.m. to allow you to get a good start on the day, with plenty of parking available.
