I had one of the specials - pancakes with fresh nectarines and raspberries, sliced almonds and whipped cream. Yummy! My only complaint is it was an enormous serving and I wish the server had suggested I might want to consider the short stack. My husband had huevos... More

I've been coming here for many years and it's my go- to place for breakfast or brunch. I love the huevos rancheros and the pesto-mushroom omelette.

Beautiful day in Grass Valley. Stopped for a late breakfast around noon. Ordered the Spanish scramble. Wife ordered French toast. Although the wait staff was very attentive, my scramble arrive at room temperature. Wife's French toast was fine. Room is very noisy.

South Pine rocks! I love the Portabella scramble and the muffins are fantastic. They even do tofu instead of eggs if that's your thing.....free range eggs, good ingredients and a relaxed atmosphere make this an epic breakfast & lunch spot! Yum!

Stopped here on our way to look at a new puppy for my brother and wife. Had the breakfast sampler and it was the best breakfast I have ever had. Highly recommend the lobster Benedict. Enjoy!!

The brunch selections were unique and very good. For instance, the potato offering with breakfast was potato pancakes with pesto and salsa alongside wonderful bacon and eggs. On Sunday, the tables were full pretty early and there was a wait to be seated. By the time my party left, there were people lined up outside for tables.
