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.

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.

  •   Friendly staff! Great menu options for pigging out or choosing healthy. It was the perfect spot for my first Tahoe experience... Also they have bloody Mary's!

  •   I found this place on Yelp and I'm glad I did! I saw many good reviews and I had to check it out. I was not as hungry so I shared the Hangover Helper. The chef was kind enough to split the order! I thought that was pretty awesome and there was no additional charge!

    The Hangover Helper was delicious! The potatoes were crispy and the chorizo was very tasty. It was a good mix and I'm glad I ordered the Hangover Helper. I saw the food the other patrons ordered and they all looked delicious!

    The server was very friendly and attentive. The other server was also friendly and attentive as well. The restaurant wasn't as busy when I went there but I can imagine it being busy and having a long wait. I would definitely come by this place the next time I'm in the area!

  •   Love this place! I try to come here whenever I am in South Lake Tahoe. Great omelettes, yummy mimosas in various flavors, the biscuits and gravy is one of the best I've ever tasted. The waitstaff is always very friendly and attentive, even when it gets busy. Try it and I promise you won't be disappointed.
