We make incredible cookie cut-outs. Now if you thought the gingerbread people doing yoga were cute, you'll love the latest Hello Kitty cookies. They are really two-too cute. We have many of our own cookie cutters, but you can bring us your own as well.

Coffee beans are sold by the pound and can be ground for those days you are not too sleepy to make your own breakfast.
The Gristmill Bakery and Deli has an extensive lunch menu. It's not just sandwiches! Choose from hot soups, home-made salads, pizza-bread, quiche or wraps. We also make burgers and serve them up on our very own home-made hamburger buns fresh from the oven.
The Gristmill is family owned and operated and we have been serving Lake of the Pines, Grass Valley, Auburn, Nevada City and other communities around Nevada County since 1992. Conveniently located on Combie Road off Highway 49 between Auburn and Grass Valley, we service many loyal customers along Highway 49 and Interstate 80. We are located next to the Holiday Market in the Lake Center shopping center.
We have a diverse product line of freshly baked breads and bakery goods, a full deli that hosts a variety of meats and cheeses and homemade salads.
If you aren't convinced by our mouth-watering pictures and our scrumptious daily menu items, we'd like to invite you in for a visit. Nothing is better than the real thing, especially when it comes to eateries.
You can sit down and enjoy a meal or snack, café style or you can order by phone, pick up and take-out for a meal on the run. You can also drop in for your daily staple - fresh bread - and other great food items such as pies, cakes, meats, cheeses and salads. We can cook up your next meal or help you with your next special occasion.
We work really hard and very long hours to make great food. We take and discuss orders over the phone. We are not set up to respond quickly to email inquiries. No orders will be considered with out a confirmation phone call. We want to get your order right and make the order process efficient. For us, that means we take orders by phone, so give us a call.
