We go to Red Hut each and every year during our annual trek to South Lake Tahoe. We have been to all of the locations. If you have a larger group I would recommend this location as they recently renovated and have more seating than ever before. Our family mainly eats the breakfast and if you love crispy waffles this... More

This unassuming little cafe was packed from the time we got there until we left, for good reason. The food was fantastic! I had a waffle with fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries). The waffle was the thin kind, nice and crispy. My husband got sausage patties (3), eggs, hash browns and toast. He's a breakfast lover, and loved... More

The waffles at the Red Hut are delicious. There are plenty of options. We will definitely visit them again if and when we return to Lake Tahoe.

Everyone we come to Tahoe we try a new breakfast place based on reviews but this is gonna be problem because I think we cannot try another one again! You would think breakfast is breakfast and so it would be the same everywhere but am wrong. This is one where the food is worth coming back for. I tried waffle... More

Great place for breakfast. We have eaten here several times. Wait time for a table is reasonable. Waitresses are attentive. Food is fresh and tasty.

Good down home cooking at a reasonable price. This is sort of like visiting hour old auntie's house for a hearty breakfast. The oldest location on South Lake Tahoe Blvd is small, but my choice among the three locations.
