If you like greasy food this is the restaurant for you. We have tried South Pine Street several times and always end up with bad stomachs after eating their hamburgers, very greasy ! Some of their clientele have dreadlocks and smell. There are always groups of them hanging out in front of the cafe at the Nevada City location.

We went in for brunch. My husband ordered the carne asana burrito and I had the veggie omelet. Bothe were exceptional. Fresh vegetables, hot food, great service.

We are BIG fans of breakfast on Saturdays and South Pine Cafe did not disappoint as far as food goes. Had the Super Sampler and Blackstone Benedict and we managed to prove yet again what the clean plate club looks like. I'd drive back to Nevada City just to have breakfast at this place again. As other Yelpers stated, as... More

My husband and I occasionally stay at the National Hotel for a bit of an escape and, while I sleep in, he walks over to the Cafe for my breakfast in bed. ALWAYS fantastic.

We usually really enjoy our breakfasts at South Pine. They have a great, eclectic menu, which is a real joy compared to many other breakfast options. We particularly like the Lobster Eggs Benny (with jalapeno hollandaise - not really spicy so don't be put off), Huevos Rancheros, homemade muffins, and fresh squeezed OJ. We also really like the scrambles and... More
