Black Bear Coffee House

Got the post Christmas blues? The holidays are over and now it seems like everyone is in the mood for Spring. We still have a few months of winter to go so why not make the best of it! Even with the holidays done, you can still have an excuse to splurge and pamper yourself with tasty delights because it is so cold outside.

I found a cute little independently owned and operated place in Nampa called the Black Bear Coffee House. I was pleased at the cozy and warm atmosphere. It has a cabin or lodge feel with handcrafted furniture and decor. But most importantly, I was pleased with the menu.

Black Bear offers fun and yummy choices besides coffee such as delicious hot chocolate, frozen cream(signature milk shakes), Italian sodas, fruit smoothies, and of course my favorite: fresh baked goodies.

The baked goodies include scones, banana bread, chocolate chip bread, cupcakes, and handmade biscotti which are beautifully displayed, and all of which are baked on site. Biscotti can me made in so many ways and are so fun and tasty to dip into your favorite hot drink. Check out some biscotti recipes here.
