Right out of the 50's

It looks like the same table and chairs my mother had in her kitchen when I was a child. The food is nothing really fancy but it is really good and full of taste. I would recommend this to anyone in the area but be advised it can get really busy on weekend mornings. I would suggest that you go... read more

The restaurant (near Al Tahoe) was really really really crowded. The tables are very close to one another and the space is small. The food was good.

A wonderful family owned place with hearty helpings for breakfast and super friendly servers. This was just down the street from our resort so we would just walk in the morning.

Go for the local Tahoe flavor in the decor and vibe. Place is very small, but had a great cozy feel. Food was as expected for a diner, but served fast and with a smile.

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
