Two Locations

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.

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.

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

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.

South Pine Cafe has some of the most interesting and delicious breakfasts and lunches in Grass Valley. Yesterday I had the Lobster Melt sandwich and it was delicious. Big chunks of lobster and a little bit of spice. Wonderful. The place is very open, light, and pleasant. I have been there a dozen times and the food is always great.

We enjoyed the burgers here. We sat at the bar because it was quite crowded on a Sunday, and the food was very good. The waitress was darling and very charming. It's one block off the main drag, so you might miss it if you're just passing through. Receommended!

Went here on the recommendation of a shop worker in town. Good call! Thai chicken wrap was delish and wife was happy with her french toast with strawberries. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked amazing, too. Solid service as well. Will return.
