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.

  •   This place was absolutely incredible! Not a single bad thing to say. Everything on the menu sounded mouthwateringly delicious, and we had not a single complaint in our party of ten. The hostesses accommodated our every request, going above and beyond on every level! They remembered our names, split our plates and drinks without asking when they heard us talking about it while ordering, and were genuinely friendly and welcoming. Such a beautiful view, quaint outdoor seating area (dog friendly patio), and delicious food, not to mention all of it is locally sourced or organic. Nothing more we could ask for as an amazing end to our Lake Tahoe getaway. Thank you so much!
