Our Location

signWe are located in the heart of the historic gold rush town of Nevada City. Our Building was built in 1862. It was originally Blazes saloon. In the fire of 1863 the court house burned to the ground. Blazes moved across the street and our location was used a temporary court house till the new one was built. It is rumored that our building also was used a Chinese jail during this time. The Chinese quarter is located just up the street a few hundred feet. There is a window into our kitchen that still has original iron bars & iron door, many tourist and locals use this as a place to shoot photos The 23 years before Matteo’s moved in 300 Commercial st  was the Country Rose Café, prior to that is was Creeky Peet’s named after the Gold rush era creek that flows under our patio & restaurant. Matteo’s Public started our remodel in February of 2009 opening our doors on July 9th The rest is History…
