Great local breakfast spot! We timed our arrival just right and were seated right away. I always see this place full and figured it must be a good place, I was right! The portions are huge and at a good price too. I had a veggie omelet that nearly filled the whole plate and the hash browns were crispy and... More

Awesome is pretty much what we thought of this place. Great service and great food. As a matter of fact the food was so good this is where we chose to eat most of our breakfast's while staying in South Lake Tahoe. One of the waitresses asked if we were locals because she had pretty much seen us everyday she... More

After many trips to South Lake Tahoe, and having locals recommend the original Red Hut, my husband and I decided to take the suggestion and we enjoyed the best home cooked breakfast we have ever had on the road. The place is small so we went about 1 PM after the breakfast crowd had thinned. Got a parking spot right... More

Quick service lead us to a nice table. This place had the feel of a 50's diner. We each ordered a breakfast meal, which it was close to noon. I had a waffle and egg sandwich which I barely could finish. My husband and nephew each ordered large breakfasts, and they really had to stuff themselves to finish. The food... More

This is concerning the original Red Hut. Friendly and good food., always consistent. Sometimes a wait but worth it. We always look forward to our breakfast there. Marilyn

Great little coffee shop with great food and service! We've been there for both breakfast and lunch. The ice cream parlor right next door is a nice place to stop for dessert. Kids loved it!

The first place I wanted to eat when we returned to Tahoe was the Red Hut. I seriously craved it for 2 years! Breakfast is delicious and worth the wait. This is the original location and it's very small. Do not expect to have a large group seated together since theres a counter and booths are small 4 seaters. In... More

Food was great. My husband ordered the coconut shrimp and loved it! Customer service in the cafe was spot on. Young man working in the soda shoppe however, may need some more training with helping those first in line instead of jumping to different people. My husband and I had been waiting patiently for him to finish with the customers... More

This restaurant is located right on the "main drag". It occupies the corner spot of a shopping center with plenty of parking off street. This is actually 2 different eateries under one roof - one a cafe, the other an old fashioned soda fountain (ice cream) place. There are a few items from the soda fountain that can be ordered...

We tried out this place because this was featured in the tv show, Man vs. Food. The place was nice and it tends to be full. The wait is worth, though. The servings are generous and the food does not disappoint. We went there for brunch and their pancakes are to die for!!! We'll make sure to drop by again... More
