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.

  •   We visit South Lake Tahoe every two to three years.  This trip (June 2018) we came with our daughter and son-in-law.  Our daughter looked on Yelp and found The Getaway Cafe, which we had never tried but the menu looked wonderful.  We decided to go for breakfast.  The location is just a few miles out of town, but we were there in 10 minutes.  We had a small wait, but delicious coffee is served outside while you wait.  It was a little too cool for us to sit outside - but many chose that option.  We were so impressed by the friendliness of staff, and the owner stopped to talk to us, and checked on us several times during our meal.  I had the corned beef hash (made from scratch) with eggs, and it was amazing.  My husband ordered the Hangover Helper, and said it was the best chorizo he'd ever tasted, and he orders that item often.  Along with an egg breakfast, our daughter ordered the coconut crusted french toast, and shared it with me.  l would drive back just for that, along with all the other delicious food!

    We have several activities we love to do every time we visit S. Lake Tahoe - and Getaway Cafe has been added to the list.  As we left, the owner gave each of us a hug.  What a memorable meal and experience.

  •   This is our favorite breakfast (and sometimes lunch) spot in all of South Lake Tahoe. We come up to Tahoe roughly 6 times a year and this is always our last stop on the way out before heading home. They have a nice quaint local atmosphere. Most of the servers have been there for at least 2-3 years now and they are all very friendly and provide great service. The owner is a sweet heart and always tries to make sure everyone gets a seat during the busy days.

    One thing we really like is the specials. On Mother's Day about 1 year ago they served up a French toast berry special with cream cheese I think and it was he best French toast I've ever had. I always look out for it on the specials still but they only bring it back once or twice a year. Everything on the menu is great. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed!
