Mountain Mike's Pizza Great pizza, and a classic familiar atmosphere
Summer Thymes They make a good mint mocha frappe!
Diego's eat the panqueque and drink a big glass of sangria.
Flour Garden Bakery Wifi can be tough to log into, but great eats!
109 Neal St, Grass Valley CA — (530) 477-2253
The Owl Split the meals with someone to avoid having to throw away really good food. Portions are typically American in size, so therefore huge.

Pine Street Burgers The Smoldering Pine is the best burger in town... Period.
Big A's Pesto Garlic fries!!
South Pine Cafe This place is amazing! Check out the Southwest Potato Pancakes or the breakfast sampler.
Asian Garden The best Chinese food in the area. No MSG, and a huge menu. Try the Lemon Chicken... it's awesome!!!
Lumberjacks Thought i could eat a full omlette... Not even close Food was awesome. The service was great. Try the thin sliced ham. SOO FULL
Broad Street Bistro If you decide to get chips with your sandwich, make sure you don't accidentally grab some expired ones. They tend to not check those things!

Ike's Quarter Cafe Nice place, just wish they had a vegan soup of the day option for their soup salad and toast dish. :/
Sopa Thai Everything is wonderful here
Lefty's Grill They have Moylans Kilt Lifter! Careful she is powerful ale... Ha!
101 Broad St, Nevada City CA — (530) 265-5838
Blue Cow Deli They make everything.. and everything I've had has been delicious.
TJ's Roadhouse I don't know why this place has low ratings, it deserves an 8 or 9 at least. Got the TJs Jalepeno burger with garlic fries. Super delicious. Just a little cold, but staff is friendly & food good!
