We've eaten here several times, mostly weekend breakfast and the occasional lunch. The location is ideal - on Broad St., walkable from everywhere. It looks like an old-fashioned diner - in fact, it was used in a sappy Hallmark TV special a few years ago, as the quintessential small-town cafe. The wall murals depict a fanciful version of Broad St.... More

We shared a Reuben and fries, perfectly prepared and generous. Good service. A little warm inside, we should have sat closer to the ceiling fans.

My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast in the Nevada City Classic Cafe. I had Pancakes and eggs - awesome. Ask and ye shall receive - tell what you want and they do their best to fill the bill. My husband had blueberry crepes. Not crepes with syrupy blueberry filling, but fresh blueberries. We were both astonished...okay so there... More

We often go to the Classic Cage on Friday nights, where they serve a special diner and our friends, Luke and Maggie, Aka Beaucoup Chapeau, play really good Eastern European music. This place used to be a typical greasy spoon , but the new owners have turned it into something very unusual and pleasant.

The table was a bit sticky and the whole place needs a good clean. Service was friendly and attentive. We had a Pear and Goat Cheese Salad and a Salad Nicoise. For pear/goat cheese salad, the pear was quite hard and only 4 thin slices but the goat cheese was very nice, quite a small salad (and this was their... More

Chef is very experienced and turns out really great meals, tastier than the look of the Café would lead you to believe. We love the Classic and eat there when we want a fun, warm... More

The food was excellent, the hot club jazz band provided an excellent atmosphere and the service was very warm and welcoming. We ate on a Friday night and if I remember correctly, the restaurant only serves the menu we ate... More
