Copes Knotty Pine Café, Bakersfield 8-9-15 I found a gold mine. The atmosphere is great, very clean and staff is outstanding. Even the food is very good. It is just off Hwy-99 north of town. I would never have found it without my GPS. I just hope the next time I come this way I can find my way... read more

I travel up and down Hyw 99. I stop in at the Knotty pine for breakfast when in the area. Fast service good food. You cannot go wrong when half the time the owner is waiting on you. It a fast on and off the Hyw, when you learn its location, not the easy's place to find first time.

Excellent Food. My husband had one of the Groupon discounts which really saved some money. I would go back even without the coupon. The place is out of the way for us, so we might have never tried it, but I'm sure glad we did. We went for lunch and I have the pastrami sandwich, excellent, believe you me. My... More

This is a piece of Bakersfield history. The place is loaded with old photos, pieces of equipment tied to what made Bakersfield, oil & ag. The country fried steak was good and so are the omelets.

Was with some friends including 2 Bakersfield locals for breakfast while on way to Yosemite. This is our new go-to place for breakfast when zipping up and down CA99. Veggie omelet is great especially with country red potatoes. Eggs Benedict a total surprise on the menu and our friends loved it as did another who enjoyed the hash. Haven't tried... More

Came here based on reviews on the way north on hwy 99 and glad we did. Place is right off the freeway. Party of 4 on a Monday about 12:30 and sat right down. Lots of locals and everyone was very friendly. Server knew the menu and made some recommendations. From the loaded baked potato to chicken sandwich and everything... More

I love eating, especially breakfast, there. Last time I was there, I had a chili verde omelet, and it was to die for. (I almost did, because it bit me back) quite hot, but deeelicious, and the service was great.

My wife and I eat at Knotty Pine regularly. There is a very large portion of their business that is from repeat customers, which says something. The downside is they are a little out of the way and parking is difficult. On weekends, you can park in the E&B lot next door, but not during the week. The other problem... More
