We have visited three times for lunch this May. The food is fresh and clearly made to order, so the wait can be long at times. We've tried the bacon cheeseburger, turkey grilled sandwich and waffles. The burger came with some great home fries. Portions are generous- you can always share a plate, or for $2 they will split your... More

Hands down one of the best breakfast/lunch places in Grass Valley ( there is also one in Nevada City). Reasonable prices, excellent food and amazing service. From their eggs Benedicts to their wraps - you absolutely cannot go wrong eating here!

Very fresh and delicious with a terrific vibe are the hallmarks of the restaurant. Always tasty and always a friendly atmosphere are part of the experience. You will not be disappointed. Try the Lobster benedict.

80% of the time it is excellent, 20% so so. Their gluten free bun is perfect....hard to find...along with the nut burger...YUM YUM YUM. Best nut burger I have ever had. I add the chipotles. That combined with the brie gives a divine, gooey mess!!! Love it, love their breakfast as well. One negative, the sound is awful. They need... More

South Pine restaurant in Grass Valley serves a great breakfast with fresh ingredients, good coffee, fresh squeezed juice, and "home" made muffins. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is a popular place and so it is usually crowded and noisy.

Good food, wasn't crazy for the atmosphere or service, prefer Pine Street Burgers and the one In Nevada City than this one but still good food. Especially the rice boat with the pesto.

I love South Pine for breakfast/brunch. Nothing beats fresh orange juice and lobster Benedict or their huevos rancheros. There are plenty of other amazing choices. It can get pretty busy, but it's worth the wait.

Organic, vegetarian, vegan or carnivore, you will be very pleased! The side salad is somewhat spicy due to the corn salsa but it is absolutely delicious and almost fills the plate by itself. Everything we have ordered on our many visits has been outstanding. Friends, visitors, family are impressed.
