Breakfast

Delicious!!! Fresh! I can't say enough good about this tucked away gem. I had the huevos rancheros and a friend had lobster tacos. The fresh pressed juice was amazing. They have homemade condiments. A great little spot with great food and service. Get there early for breakfast!

With a guest from out of town, we had a great breakfast. We've never been disappointed here. Always a favorite. Lots of different options that you never see at your "standard" breakfast places. Can't wait to go back!

This is a wonderful, funky restaurant. It serves only breakfast and lunch. It is not on South Pine Street, but the original one in Nevada City is. The food is quite unusual- lobster omelette for example. They have great mimosas. The atmosphere is very casual and delightful.

I'm not going to lie, their service was pretty slow. But after my mom and I tried it once, we had to come back for lunch another day with the rest of our family. The sourdough bread used here was really good. They also have fresh squeezed fruit juices. Being just down the street from the Courtyard Suites, I would... More

I'll give it to you straight -- food is great, wait is looooooooong and service is sloooooooooow. We went on Father's Day so that may have added to our wait, tho GV wasn't very busy due to bike race in Nevada City. If you are going with young kids or inpatient in-laws. . . think twice or bring iPads for... More

We ate here twice for breakfast during a recent trip to Grass Valley. I was actually looking on line for another restaurant and came across rave reviews for this place. We gave it a try and were really pleased with the results - so much so that we returned the following day. This place has very friendly service and quality... More

We waited an hour from the time we ordered until we got our food. I wanted to complain to the manager but the waitress said she had stepped out- it seems to me that she should have been helping the kitchen staff, who were clearly unable to handle a full restaurant. I can say that the food was quite good... More

South Pine has two locations. One in Nevada City and one in Grass Valley. They serve breakfast and lunch. We usually go to the Grass Valley restaurant for lunch.The food is fresh, and the soups are wonderful. The staff seem to really enjoy working here, and it shows in their friendly service.

We enjoy having breakfast here. The building is historic and the owners support local providers. This is not your usual pancake and waffle establishment. Best place for a great breakfast.
