While in Grass Valley we were looking for a place to have lunch when we lucked out by finding the South Pine Cafe. The atmosphere is very cafe/coffee shop like, clean, but nothing to write home about. The food, however, is really good - very flavorful, not your typical fare. The servers are very nice and friendly. I highly recommend... More

I have to confess, I usually try any of the scramble at the South Pine Cafe. And if I am being really bad I have pancakes with berries. BUT I am being more adventurous this week and tried the potato pancakes with eggs over medium. Brother were they great. They are served with a delicious pesto over the potato cakes... More

I enjoy going to Grass Valley's South Pine Cafe, sitting at the quiet bar and having an ice tea and a warm (wilted) spinach salad with chicken in it. I forgo the garlic herb toast always and sit back , read the newspaper or read my book group's most recent novel...reading a really good one now! On all counts So... More

Great lobster scramble, but unfortunately the service was extremely slow. There was one waitress for the entire restaurant and it took us 45 minutes to get our breakfast. The waitress was very friendly but that's a little ridiculous. So if you don't mind waiting for your food, this is a good breakfast or lunch spot.

A friend who lives in rural (not downtown) Grass Valley, suggested South Pine Cafe as a place to meet for one in our series of breakfasts-with-serious-conversation. I got there way early, since I trusted Google Map's drive time, which was WAY off. But I was offered a table and coffee, no problem. The greeter was proficient, if not effusive. The... More

Stayed in Grass Valley two days and ate breakfast here twice. Had super sampler, blackstone benedict and lobster scramble. Every bit was exquisite. Everything was homemade from hollandaise sauce to condiments on the table. I have never seen homemade ketchup and it was so tasty with the home fries that came with the meal. Staff is very friendly and service... More

I could only eat out once in the area because of time, and from reading the reviews, I thought this would be the right choice. It was a quaint little place with a really creative and interesting menu, and I decided on the breakfast sampler. My server was also the greeter, and she was slow getting to me. It was... More

Really enjoyed our breakfast at South Pine Cafe this morning. All three breakfast entrees we ordered were fantastic. Please do note that side orders add up fast...a side of toast (1 slice) and potato pancake (2 small) totaled $7.25. Service was wonderful.
