Description: Welcome to Old Town Cafe! We're a retro style diner that's been serving up classic American cuisine to locals since 1930. In fact, we're Grass Valley's oldest continuous restaurant! Come on in for casual counter dining in a beautiful historic building! All of our meals are home cooked from scratch right here in our kitchen, and we're certain you'll be able to taste the difference. We use fresh ground beef in all of our hand-pressed patties for the best burgers in town. Our famous gravy is homemade and tastes just like grandma used to make, and our pancakes are so big you may want to ask your server for instructions. If you leave Old Town Cafe hungry, it's your own fault! At Old Town Cafe, we treat our guests like family. Stop by for a delicious home cooked meal and friendly hometown service!

Set in old town Grass Valley this cafe is small but laid out nicely. The personable owner is usually present making sure your getting great food and service. Nice menu selection and side options as well but I suggest you go with the home made potato chips as they are awesome!

“Solid Fresh Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

Properly done food with fresh ingredients. Had a Bacon & Cheese Omelet, it was plentiful and tasty. Toast came dry with pats of real butter on the side, no smear of food service grill grease here. It's good food prepared fresh. Owner also tends tables, he's there for feedback & friendly. Potatoes, fresh fruit, or sliced tomatoes all offered as sides at breakfast. His homemade salsa is a treat, just a bit of heat made with fresh ingredients.

It's right downtown with lots of competition and has been there quite a while, that in itself says something. Midweek parking was available right in front, there are city lots behind the businesses. Very convenient.

“Great Food, Reasonable Priced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

We have visted this establishment numerous times and the owner, Robin, is a good and kind person. He makes it a point to greet each customer and he personally takes their order. The menu selection is well priced.
