The Grumpy Bear review: Comfort food with a delicious local twist

28 May 2020

There are plenty of options to keep bellies happy here, at this cosy and welcoming café, The Grumpy Bear. Expect to taste only the best Western cuisine, especially their signature chicken dishes that are raved by many. There is nothing here to be grumpy about.

The best seller out of the 11 chicken dishes would definitely be their Cajun Chicken – juicy and tender chicken chop that is grilled to perfection, served with their special mushroom sauce on the side. Or if you’re craving for something more familiar, you can tickle your fancy with their locally-inspired flavours – Salted Egg and Chilli Crab Chicken.

For their pasta, the Classic Carbonara is a hit with customers of all ages – al dente pasta in a creamy sauce is a tasty treat you can’t say no to. Here at The Grumpy Bear, they only use the best type of fish, the Pacific Dory fillets for their Old Skool Fish & Chips delivering succulent flavours with each bite. Served with fries and homemade tartar sauce, you can’t go wrong with this classic dish.

Sink your teeth in their franks and burgers, such as The Cheesy Franky or The Grumpy Cheeseburger. For the latter, stacked between buttery brioche buns, a juicy beef patty, sliced cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a dollop of their secret sauce that marries all the ingredients beautifully, and of course a side of fries.
