    Marshall's Cornish Pasties
    At Marshall's, you have the option to sit down at a table to eat your order, or you can take it away with you. Marshall's Cornish pasties are made fresh each day and they contain no artificial preservatives or additives. Voted best in Nevada County.

    Marshall's Cornish Pasties has preserved the traditional Cornish method of preparing and baking Cornish pasties, albeit with a flatter looking top. I would highly recommend Marshall's Cornish Pasties. Regular and large approx $3 and $4 respectively. Cash only.

    203 Mill Street
    Grass Valley, CA 95945
    (530) 272-2844

    Favorite Dish: Cousin Jack's has two entrances, one to dine in and one for take outs. They have many, many choices of pasties. The owners admit they may have gone a little over board, but you can try a traditional, pot roast, corned beef and cabbage, greek, chili, turkey, lamb, a combination like spinach mushroom and cheese or chicken and potato, or a pepperoni pizza pasty to name a few!

    Salads and delicious fries, including garlic parmesan fries, bangers, pot pies. and more! Cousin Jack's also serves good 'English' tea, and Cream Teas as well as desserts (their bread pudding is excellent). Accepts credit cards. "Jenny" and "Jack" sizes (regular and large)

    Caroline's Coffee Roasters: Good Chai Latte

    Carolines Coffee Roasters
    1 more image

    I came on this place wondering the streets of downtown Grass Valley on a Thursday afternoon in January. I couldn't believe all the people inside so I had to check it out. Walking in the door there were a couple of employees unloading huge sacks of coffee. There was a line at the counter and most of the seats were taken by groups of people or individuals enjoying their drinks.

    I didn't look at their menu just decided to order a chai latte so as to compare it to other places. I found the tea to be good but with a strong taste of clove as opposed to other more spices. It was nice to sit down for a spell, enjoy the latte, search around the store and listen to some of the local talk. Carolines definitely an interesting place and most of the locals swear by it for coffee.

    Favorite Dish: Chai latte was the only thing I tried.

    Old Town Cafe: Local atmosphere

    by trvlrtom Written Jan 2, 2009
    Old Town Cafe

    The sign on the front of the Old Town Café says this is the "Oldest continuous restaurant in Grass Valley”. With the first restaurant opening at this site back in the 1920s, this is probably true. We went in and received a friendly welcome from the staff, and took note of the locals that dominated the scene. Our service was prompt and attentive, and everyone in the place looked happy. The only problem for us was that the food wasn't very good. The fries were greasier than any I have had before. Maybe it was a bad day for the cook. Maybe the others in the crowded cafe don't care about the food and come for the camaraderie and atmosphere.

    The Owl Grill & Saloon: Good, popular local place

    by trvlrtom Written Jan 2, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Owl is recognized as one of the better restaurants in the area. The food is good, along with service and atmosphere. You can't go wrong with their steaks. They often have live music (no big headliners here - remember this is somewhat off the beaten path).

    The business is made up of two historic buildings, one built in 1857 and the other 1862. The name derives from the days when local gold mines ran 24 hours per day.

    Maria's Mexican Restaurant.: Good local Mexican food

    by trvlrtom Written Dec 7, 2008
    1 more image

    Maria's is a local favorite. They have everything for a successful restaurant: good food, atmosphere, and service. We've been here about six times, and always have had a good experience.
    There is plenty of inside seating on the main floor along with balcony seating and a small outdoor patio. The bar is small, and generally serves as a place to wait for a table. They have a good margarita list too!

    Favorite Dish: Along with the regular menu, which is online, they usually have specials also.

    Railroad Cafe: Good local place

    by trvlrtom Written Jan 5, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Railroad Cafe, Grass Valley

    The Railroad Cafe is a busy little restaurant in downtown. The cafe is located in an interesting old building that reflects the history of the mining community, with solid rock walls and lots of woodwork. Most unique, however, is the scale model railroad that circles above the dining area.

    Favorite Dish: They serve the basics here - sandwiches, soups etc.

    Tofanelli's: Great Califonia Fare

    by StAlphonzo Written Oct 15, 2006

    A classic California bistro. Huge menu to appeal to any taste and freindly staff. If the weather is nice make sure you ask to sit on the patio.

    Favorite Dish: It was lunchtime and I had the grilled ham pannini and my wife had the portobello sandwich, both of which were excellent. Will definitely go back next time we're in Grass Valley.
