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

    Clearly your defensiveness here shows lack of accountability for the way you spoke to all of us--not  just me. My friend was just being fake nice but was calling you the B word there at the table  and all the way back home.  Do you not recall him being sarcastic with you and asked if it was OK for the kids to eat the crayons after you yelled at me? Your wait staff even rolled their eyes at you. Lastly, how  on earth would we have been able to wait in the car and also hear our table get called? Come on lady.

  •   The day after thanksgiving, leaving Lake Tahoe we stopped her on a whim and boy are we glad we did!! We decided to get takeout and the host was so gracious and kind and they were slammed too! She took our order quickly, I forgot to order coffee, she brought it out to us. This place is cute, small but very cozy and charming. The food was excellent!! I had the Turkey club (yes, I know, more turkey), but it was over the top in flavor with a creamy cranberry sauce that was so unexpected! This will be our go to anytime we are on our way out of Tahoe!
