This was a nice stop for breakfast. The restaurant wasn't very busy. Service was good as was the food. Would stop here again when I am in the area.

I make it a point to stop here every time I'm in Tahoe. Nice large booths. Cozy way to start the day . The food is far above average for breakfast. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared Side dishes are noteworthy too. A mighty good Benedict can be had here . Friendly staff. Try it...you won't be disappointed.

I thought for the price, there should have been more. I had the Moutineer, they were cream filled topped with raspberry crepes. I thought they would be better with a couple strips of bacon.

I appreciate your honest comments, Roy -- it's feedback like yours that ensures we're always moving in the right direction. Not everyone's a fan of mixing those sweet and savory flavors, which is why we keep the Mountaineer pretty classic, but I'll certainly keep your suggestion in mind! All told, I know we can do better than a 3-star experience,... More

When you're still thinking about how good your breakfast was two days later... It must have been really good! That deserves a review!

I'm thrilled to hear you were still thinking about us after you left, Tara! Our view of "trendy/old school" is to have a few cooks working with us for 10-15 years, and several food servers with us for 12-24 years. Working with good people is a secret I am happy to share with everyone. I appreciate you leaving us a... More

I came here because it was right next to the lodge I was staying at, I didn't like the idea of waiting though because there was a big line on Sunday but I can say it was worth the wait, for starters I missed my place because I was next door buying souvenirs, and when I told the hostess pretty...

We found Heidi's about 10 years ago on a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. It's a cute little coffee shop that resembles a Swiss Chalet. One step inside and you really feel the Alpine experience with murals of the Alps, a statue of a mountain goat and wood booths topped with Swiss lattice detailing. It's like stepping into a coo...

The portions are ample. The food is delicious. We ordered the pancakes, omlet, and a side of bacon. There was more than enough food for three people and the quality was great.

This is an ok breakfast place. The food is serviceable and the service is ok. The pancakes taste like any pancake in any pancake restaurant. I was intrigued by the crepes and I regret not trusting my instinct. Overall I really don't have much to say other than its a cut above a greasy spoon diner but not too high... More

I'm sorry our pancakes didn't impress you more, Christopher.
