Ok, now I know why so many people are overweight! But, on the other hand, if you're looking for a good, hearty breakfast, come here. Good selections, good variety, and good food...and plenty of it. Conveniently located, good prices.

Great breakfast place. Fast, large portions to fill up before hours of skiing or hiking/exploring. Became our go to breakfast place while we were in Lake Tahoe.

Diner type of place. Quick service but a bit rushed. Missed part of our order as a result.. Not cheap but good portions. A good way to start the day. A good choice of menu.

There are three locations in South Lake Tahoe by all the big resorts. If you are staying by Harrah's and Hard Rock, we recommend going to the one off of highway 207. It's the original Red Hut, so it doesn't feel chainy. It's up a hill, so there's a view of the lake. First time trying chicken and waffles. Yum.

Went for breakfast, had waffle sandwich, bacon was very greasy but waffle and egg were just right. Restaurant has a few to many tables, so you are bumping into other people's seats. Service was quick and good. There's also an ice cream shop too. Good for a simple meal.

The Red Hut Cafe is our choice for breakfast. We live here and know that it can get VERY crowded on the weekends, so go early! The original Red Hut Cafe on Kingsbury Grade is small and the tables are pushed very close together (be prepared to share conversations with others). The newer Red Hut Cafe on Lake Tahoe Blvd....

This place is the bomb, however, it's small and the wait is forever. If you r a big party it will be even longer. The wait is worth it though.
