Swiss-themed pancake house. Great breakfasts and sandwiches - open until 2 pm. Angel, a waitress, was an angel!

Heidi's has been a Tahoe landmark for years. They can accommodate large groups to couples. Menu is pancakes, crepes, typically breakfast fare. They do serve lunch but they do close at 2 Service was fast and friendly.

Out of 8 mornings of our stay - we ate there 3 times! That tells you something! I loved the Raspberry pancakes. In fact, I had them each time!

Way too cutesy for my taste. Large portions of mediocre quality food. They really push their gravy which "has won 3 awards". Our table was so close to the tables on either side that I felt I should introduce myself. The food was edible but not what I would choose to eat again. The waitress seemed to be reading from...

You should be able to kick back and have a great breakfast with us, so I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy yourself. While we're definitely proud of our gravy, you shouldn't feel that you're being pushed into ordering it. As for seating, we try to comfortably fit as many spaces in our restaurant as we can because our... More

If you are an early bird, you don't have to wait. Awesome service, and great food! There is a long queue if you are in after 8:30 am esp during the 4th July weekend. We also used $30 off watersports( before 9am) coupon at the front desk, which basically made our breakfast free!
