We went for lunch and found this place full with responsive service and tasty food. My wife had a great pine salad and I had the Jerk Wrap. This was a nice restaurant with unique food.

We went there for breakfast. The service was good,as was the breakfast. Little pricey but fresh. There is a Tex mex flavor and feel about certain items and decor. A lot of locals seem to eat here. Very busy.

I recently had brunch at the South Pine Cafe. It was fabulous. We went during the week, so the restaurant was not as packed as it generally is on the weekend. The breakfast menu is so extensive, it will take time for you to go...More

I wasn't super impressed but we're from Idaho and unless we go to downtown Boise we don't frequent many similar restaurants. My cousin has food allergies so the restaurant worked well for her until she discovered Brie on her sandwich when she asked for no...More
