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...

It looks like I already responded to you on Yelp, but I will re-post my response here just to make sure you saw it. Thank you for being such a loyal customer, Christian!

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. I wish you had enjoyed our food and atmosphere more overall, and I hope you might consider stopping by and trying our crepes at some point in the future. Our Mt. Tallac Crepes (blueberries and sour cream) is my personal favorite if I'm feeling like something sweet. Or I might suggest... More

Heidi's is a cute chalet-style restaurant with an excellent assortment of breakfast and lunch items. We had breakfast with a large family group, and service was fast and efficient. Everyone ordered something different, and we all got enormous quantities of food - far more than we could reasonably eat. The dishes were quite good, especially the buckwheat pancakes and the...

You're right, we're the place to fill up before skiing! I'm glad to hear we're your spot in Tahoe! We were more than happy to fill you up with buckwheat pancakes and Eggs Benedict before a big day on the slope, and hope to see you back again soon. One question, where is your favorite spot to ski / ride?... More

Heidi's was a short walk from our hotel (Lakeview), had a great selection of breakfast / brunch food that was good and plentiful ... a bit on the expensive side, but then it is Lake Tahoe and the holidays

Old school breakfast but warm and delicious. I love old breakfast places and this did not disappoint. Pancakes were great, eggs great and good sized portions.

This is a regular stop after church. They close at two o'clock, so go early. The waffles are to die for. My regular is the bicuits and gravy. Just good, hearty cooking in a traditional way.

Jamie ( guy ) was a good server willing to help our vegetarian navigate the menu. The Germanic kitsch decor made it a fun dining ambiance. Food was not well seasoned, rather dry and did not come out piping hot. It was okay.
