We come here as a tradition on our first day of skiing. My bro likes the omelettes, while I think the crepes are the best. Good basic food, good price. Good place to fill up before heading up the mountain. Very attentive service.

All I can say is this: in the past I've gone to Heidi's for breakfast on several different occassions, consistently good every time! Our waitress was certainly beyond gracious...for sure food for the soul. My boyfriend and I left with smiles on our faces!!

Heidi's is not a fancy place, but it is tried and true! The wait staff is friendly and attentive. You can order basic breakfast and lunch selections if you are trying to be a bit economical and want a quick meal. We had breakfast there before heading back to the valley.

Go to Tahoe once a year and eat at Heidis everytime on my last day before heading home. Every dish Ive had there is good. Always a wait, so be prepared. A must in Tahoe though.

My girlfriend and I had breakfast here and were pretty happy with the portions. They bake their own muffins (with fruit) and I tried the blueberry muffin and thought it was very good. Our server was definitely a people person and she had very good intuition about what we might prefer. I would definitely eat here again if I ever... More

There are some places, some tastes, some memories that feels special, something different, remarkable and unforgettable... Breakfast in Heidi's is such an experience. The night we arrived in Lake Tahoe, I went for a walk around our hotel to find places. I saw this restaurant and said to myself: "hmmm... We can come to this place once instead of our... More

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
