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 has got it all in this hidden gem. Food is incredible from soup.to sandwiches. Only regret is we won't have breakfast as that was a hard choice berltween breakfast and lunch. Staff is super attentive and friendly offering choices like only a family owned place brings out. Waitress could see we were weighing option of fries or hose made onion rings so she offered us a half OR and half fry option. Wow! We sat outside on a beautiful mid September day looking at wonderful view across Hwy 50. Top notch and would give it six stars or more if that was an option.
If I could give this amazing place 100 stars I would!! We visited Tahoe in February and found this gem on yelp! We waited 45 min because it was packed and plus their outdoor area was closed due to the snow but let me tell you....I will wait 2 hours for a seat at this place! You do not want to go to South Lake Tahoe without eating here! We are back visiting in September and well still not disappointed and we ended up eating there twice because it's that good! Not only is the food amazing but the staff and the owner are so friendly and so nice and great you like they know you! The owner definitely takes pride in what she has created and it shows! The coconut crusted french toast with bananas is off the hook amazing!!!! Not too sweet and just the right amount of everything! The fish tacos omg bomb!!! My boys has their burgers, Philly cheesesteak, french toast, grilled cheese, bacon and egg sandwich and also the chorizo quesadilla and they are picky boys and said it was amazing!!! My husband also had the chorizo Benedict and loved that as well! Oh and don't forget the different kinds of mimosas!! I can't rave about this place enough! If we lived in Tahoe we'd be here every weekend!!! Please please go here, you won't regret it and you'll leave super full and happy and even with some leftovers since their portions are hearty!!! We love this place!!! Can't wait to visit in Feb next year!
