Cozy neighborhood delight

Cafe Mahjaic never fails to provide fresh, seasonal fare in a delicious manner. It's a small place so make reservations. The chairs are not real comfortable (need some padding) but we always manage a 2 hour meal anyway. Nice wine list too.

Went to try this place out and had the price fixe menu. Appetizer, salad, entree, and desert for 30 dollars. All so delicious. The steak is the best I have had ANYWHERE.

Just had Thanksgiving Dinner at the Cafe Mahjaic in Lotus, CA. Building had been a General Store, built in the 1850's. Great ambiance, great food, great service. Prix Fixed menu today, all the choices were delicious. Appetizer of 4 Dungeness Crab legs was a treat.

Good service, Serra Nevada rustic, excellent food, fusion of the best of cuisines, and worth a trip out here. If you visiting Sutter's Mill, drive north up the road to Lotus. It's the perfect end of a day. I would also recommend stopping at Hooverville Orchards for some of the best fruit and pies around. Their Asian pears are amazing... More

We enjoyed dinner here one evening during our stay in Placerville, we showed up early and the hostess was able or accommodate us despite not having reservations. Within 45 minutes the place was packed and it's easy to understand why. The food is great! I enjoyed the spaetzle and it was just as good if not better than what I've... More
