The building that until recently housed a Denny's at the Markets at Mesa Ridge in Fountain is being converted to a Black Bear Diner.

Headquartered in Mount Shasta California, Black Bear diner is a restaurant chain in the western United States which features homestyle cooking and comfort foods.

From the website: "Black Bear Diner, founded in 1995, is a fast-growing, community-oriented, family dining concept that offers a one-of-a-kind experience in a fun, bear-themed atmosphere. Black Bear Diner was born from a desire to bring home-style comfort food classics and personal service back to the dining experience."

Black Bear has over 100 locations including 2 in Colorado Springs at Citadel Crossing and Garden of the Gods.

The new location is across from the Chase Bank and behind the UC Health Emergency Room.
