You will never be disappointed at South Pine Cafe

OK so this is my favorite local place for Breakfast. I do love others for individual things, but South Pine located in both Grass Valley AND Nevada City (on Pine Street) are amazing food places. I prefer the Grass Valley South Pine because it is a bit lighter, brighter and bigger, both both have... read more

Excellent breakfast restaurant. I have not been here for lunch. Fully organic and every item can be made vegan or vegetarian. A little on the pricy side, but organic does cost a bit more. As locals we only visit when we have guests or for a special breakfast out, but we strongly recommend it to all tourists!

The menu was diverse and delicious.... not the same thing you would find everywhere. Attentive staff. Just a fun place to dine.

Never had a bad meal. The lobster Benedict is out of this world. The food is always delicious. Fresh squeezed juices are always a treat.

This place is absolutely excellent. A dying breed of old school, downtown cafes. Now, of course, in California, this place has the hippie vibe but, if you're in Nevada City, you probably picked up on that already. Eat here! The food is great. There is an *enormous* selection of vegetarian and vegan options, cooked on a separate grill from the... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Nevada City and Grass Valley (they have two locations). A wider variety of breakfast and lunch dishes are available and everything is good; my mom and I usually get the lobster scrambled eggs.

Just at there this morning and the breakfast was delicious. I had olalaberry pancakes and they were so good. My wife had huevos rancheros which were great too. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a tasty breakfast. Not cheap but worth it.

Oh yea... Good food too. My kids love to get the mouse cakes. This place has brewed coffee to die for but make sure ya take your blood pressure meds before you go cause it's defiantly high octane!!! The sausage gravy and biscuits is among the best I've ever had.

I had the olallieberry french toast and fresh squeezed oj. Both were super delicious. The oj was sweet and perfectly pulped. The olallieberry sauce was the best part of breakfast.
