We love Summer Thymes! They have great food, prepared well and very fresh. And the wait staff are wonderful, so kind and helpful. Of course, we especially love hearing Motoshi play the harp on Sundays!

Had a great quiche and salad yesterday. Loved the feel of the restaurant. A great gathering place for friends. They don't rush you to leave. I saw two groups of women playing mah Jong and I'm sure they were there for quite a while. A nice neighborhood feel with good vibes. I hope to return next time I'm in the... More

After the move more than a year ago, there has been several incarnations of how to serve food, where to order, what items to carry, and just a lot of confusion. I've been going in every once in a while and they seemed to have figured it out now. You order at the back counter, self-serve coffee, or the Barista... More

Since they've moved to their new location its lost its charm. It seems dark and no personality. Service is very slow. Staff, so so. The food is ok but overpriced.

This is a decent place for a good lunch salad. Coffee shop atmosphere with hit or miss service, but great parking and you don't have to deal with the downtown traffic in Grass Valley.

Had a ogives lunch at SummerThymes this summer. Salads were amazing! Turkey sandwich was a bit dry. Maybe a different bread? Chicken pesto was better. Location is great. So much better than old location! Really great staff.

I enjoyed the food at Summer Thymes but the prices were much too high, in my opinion. The service was nothing special, you just go to the counter, order and they bring it to your seat. No follow up, no customer service to speak of. Not bad, just not good either. It is a very large place, a little hard... More

Great French toast - one of their specialties, very thick, wonderful taste. Live music Sunday brunch with harpist, very soothing, creates great atmosphere. Lots of tables, easy to find seating. Have been here three Sundays out of the last four, will be back a lot more !
