Solid Local Place With Good Food

I can see why people like to come here. Food is good and portions are huge. Service was also good. We thought prices were a bit high compared to some other places. Decor was true to Swiss Alps type true to name of Heidi's. No views otherwise. We personally found other less known local places with... read more

The menu has so many choices, and the food was amazing( if you like waffles, get the heavenly valley). The service was so nice and friendly and the food came out quick.

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.
