This was my favorite place to eat in South Lake Tahoe! They have so many choices and their breakfast/brunch food is simply the best. Absolutely amazing poached eggs and hash browns.

The cafe feels very cozy in the inside and the service was fast and friendly. Highly recommended!

Love it! Had a great breakfast and the service was good. Fresh ingredients made it all the better. I ordered the Chorizo Quesadilla, so yummy. Could only be better, if it was made with soy chorizo. My brother in law had the decadent Coconut Crusted French Toast. It was definitely dessert for breakfast.

Can't wait to try their burgers the next time I'm in town.

Don't pass this place up! Amazing food and service. By far the best breakfast in town. 

The owner comes by and checks on you and makes this place feel very welcome.

  •   Theeeeee Best place for breakfast, lunch or brunch in ALL OF South Lake Tahoe  the menu is delicious all over the pages . Honestly I haven't found anything that we don't like about The Getaway Cafe ! The Staff are the RADDEST  along with the sweet owner . Definitely a Local Favorite! We live near midtown, yet drive out to Meyers at least once a week for a delicious local meal. During the late spring & summer they have an awesome outdoor patio to dine on. If you love food ? Then you don't want to miss this place. I Recommend trying at least everything once !
