Great Breakfast

We were able to get a latte in the coffee shop / ice cream area of the restaurant while waiting for a table which was nice. I had banana walnut waffle and egg on the side it was delicious. Everyone in our party was happy with their food, large portions.

Large breakfast portions of all the usuals, french toast, pan cakes, scrambles, sausage, bacon and more. Place is small so may have to wait at certain times especially during summer season, wait staff are good and service your need quickly. Floors/carpets are especially filthy and this place is well worn over the years, probably hasn't upgraded in many years. Remains... More

The Red Hut Café has been my favorite for the last 30 years. Great service. Sorry to see them move into the new store because of the history of the old building. Still excellent place

Great and generous breakfasts, lots of the usual eggs, hash browns, sausages bacon, french toast, waffles and plenty of coffee. Prices a little high at $9 plus but have $6 specials daily. Restaurant has been there forever and looks that way, floors are extremely dirty, place is very small but the wait might be worth it. Waiters are dressed in... More

The food and the prices are good, we had our breakfasts there. The staff is really friendly. You don't have to wait long to be served. The omeletts and the pancakes are great.

We have eaten here the last several times we went to South Lake Tahoe. The atmosphere is great, friendly staff and service, food is like homemade, and portions are perfect.

Everyone was courteous and attentive. There was a 10 minute wait so you knew it had to be good. The food was quick and fresh. Portions were great and the food tasted amazing.
