The original Pine House Café & Tavern was opened in 1942 when WWII was in full swing and Mount Laguna was buzzing with activity from the Laguna Mountain Air Force Base. Decades later the base closed & the Pine House changed several times before closing for quite a long spell.
Nica Knite reopened Pine House in the summer of 2011 and was joined by her business partner & chef son, Jonathon, in 2014… With a growing reputation for great food & friendly mountain atmosphere PINE HOUSE is proud to be “the place to dine in the backcountry!”
Weekend Dinner reservations strongly recommended.
