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.

  •   The food was excellent! I had French toast w/eggs n bacon. The portions were very hearty and listened to live music. The view was spectacular as was the weather. There was plenty of outdoor seating. I definitely recommend.

  •   First time going and not the last. The whole staff is super friendly, got seated quickly and the service was great! Then add the food, the owner suggested a few different things to try and they did not disappoint! All around great breakfast joint.

  •   This place is a hidden gem indeed!!!
    We are back. We just couldn't resist. Out here in Tahoe for 3 days and if we would've known about it, I'm sure we would've been here these 3 mornings.
    The hospitality: AMAZING. Attentive. Polite. Smiles. Very welcoming and great environment. The owner herself works on the floor and she is great. She remembered us! Say right by the fireplace, just like the first time. It is a very beautiful establishment.
    The food: TO DIE FOR! This place will leave all your taste buds satisfied. The first time I came here I was overwhelmed with the menu, but she threw out some great recommendations. She spoke about and described her items and sold me on them. The chorizo. Definitely get and add the chorizo. Do not hesitate or question it. It is really great, and if I may, I love chorizo.. I critique this item every place I go. I am picky. I highly recommend this. The chilaquiles were amazing. Every bite is like a new adventure filled with the same yet amazingly great taste. It seems to all be homemade. Second time I came I got the Hangover plate.. mannn... let me not go on and get your taste buds savoring and salivating.. get your behind here now and try them yourself!!! You won't regret it! Definitely coming back here next trip around.. guaranteed!!
