10/10 worth the wait

I ate here on my first day of 2016! We had to wait for a long time, though, as there were a lot of people and it was rather crowded. But the food was amazing! There were so many choices to choose from, and they all ended up delicious. It's a really great place for breakfast or brunch and I... read more

I recently relocated to South Lake Tahoe and am still in a hotel. I have heard good things about this restaurant and decided to try them. The food was good, but pricey for breakfast. I had 2 fried eggs, home fries, toast, bacon and coffee. My bill, with gratuity was $19. I won't be back when there is an Ihop... More

While I'm glad that your food was good, I'm disappointed to hear you won't be back. Our commitment sourcing local ingredients of the highest quality is important to us and can explain our slightly higher price point. I hope you'll give us another chance to show you why we've been a local favorite for decades. Warm regards, Don R., Owner More

Heidi's is a tradition in our family. They have the best breakfasts by far-especially their scrambles. You may have to wait awhile to be seated but it's worth it.

Hearing that we're a family tradition is the best compliment we can receive. We're glad our scrambles are worth the wait! Quick suggestion -- on weekends getting in before 9 a.m. is smart planning. Thank you for your kind words. I will make sure to pass along to the rest of the staff. Until next time, Don R., Owner More

We saw the parking lot packed over the weekend & decided this must be 'the' place to try as we headed home from Tahoe. Nope.
