Beautiful Patio

I do like Ike's. It is not our favorite. They do have a nice range of interesting menu items. I've never had anything that is bad. I just always leave feeling like something is missing a bit. The patio is fantastic. The inside inside is a bit tight and cluttered.

There aren't too many choices in Nevada City for quality eats. Ike's has been there for a long time and it does not disappoint. Outdoor seating is great because it's shaded by trees and off the main street. One thing to keep in mind is that the place is CASH ONLY. This is fine except when you have a large... More

Great brunch in friendly atmosphere with quality ingredients and a good (but not too large) range of food. Unique decor with a hippy flair. Not open in the evenings.

This is a great place to eat with good food and reasonable prices. The outdoor patio is perfect when weather permits and the service is excellent.

Just went back to Ike's after a few years of not eating there. It's usually pretty crowded and doesn't serve your run of the mill breakfast. There menu is huge and somewhat daunting which I imagine it is for the cooks as well. Food was good, but not great. I have to compare it to South Pine Cafe in that... More

Ikes is the best place to eat organic food. The do want you to pay cash or check. No credit cards. Every thing is fresh made there from great pancakes to oysters. Ike is the kindess person and out door seating is the best. Tiny inside

Open only for breakfast/Lunch until 3pm, this is a wonderful place to sit outside under the spreading canopy of a beautiful tree. I had a pulled pork sandwich, which was delicious and the lemonade is awesome, not too sweet or processed. What a way to while away an hour.

Ike's was recommended to us by a store owner. We put our names in and were told 45 minutes. We went to walk around this adorable gold rush city, and explore. When we returned, we waited another 30 minutes! We were hungry, and looked forward to dining in the garden under a cool shade tree. We likened ourselves to the... More

New Orleans-style food, with a California flair. Organic in many cases. We chose to sit outside, under a widely spreading tree. It was a warm and sunny day, so we were very comfortable. We had to skip dessert because of time, but I would have gone for the Rose Shake! For a large lunch, I ordered the Eggs St. Charles... More
