Welcome to The Getaway Café

I have always dreamed of owning a restaurant where my friends and family would feel at home and where strangers would soon become friends. I have been in the restaurant industry since I was 14 years old and have been influenced by many wonderful chefs preparing a wide array of foods from many cultures.  My happiest moments have always been when I was cooking for my friends and family. My mission is simple: great food prepared with fresh ingredients at an affordable price.

May your meal be enhanced by the friendly banter of an attentive staff. Everything is made fresh to order in a very small kitchen so sit back, relax and enjoy the conversations of the guests you are dining with.  I promise you it will be worth the wait.

If there are items on my menu you have never tried before, I encourage you to be adventurous. You will find a blend of American, Italian and Mexican cuisines on the menu, sometimes with a unique twist, but always prepared with a passion for flavor.

Diane Guth,
Owner

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 was by far my favorite restaurant for breakfast in South Lake Tahoe. The coconut french toast was amazing. The service and atmosphere were both great. They even had a gender neutral bathroom. I will definitely be back!

  •   The food here is so, so, so good.  It is a must-go whenever we are in Tahoe!  The service here is also great.  It is so nice to go someplace that cares about the customers and their experience.  There is a lot of outdoor seating, which is awesome.  Try the biscuits and gravy, the hangover helper, and the french toast!

  •   This place is really such a gem. The owner says everything is made from scratch and with love. And she's not kidding. One of the best cafes I've ever eaten at. My boyfriend had the French dip and I had the turkey club. Both of our lunches were absolutely amazing! I can't wait to come back.
