An after-dinner trip to the rear patio where the ice-cream shop is located resulted in a tasty summer evening respite. The flavor selection is large and includes some unique choices, but their specialty combinations are the real features. Our group ordered double-scoop cones and a specialty treat, all of which satisfied - though the chocolate brownie option was said to... More

We were looking for a new breakfast place to try and found the log cabin cafe in kings beach. Casual, short wait for brunch, we sat outside in back. Parking was a little tough. Really good food, good selections/ portions, reasonable prices. I had a cranberry orange waffle, bacon and cinnamon iced tea. They had made to order scrambles. We... More

Mmmmm Good! The Log Cabin Cafe is a must do any time we visit Tahoe. We love their call ahead policy. It's not a reservation service, but if you let them know you're coming, they will tell you when a table will be ready. They have a beautiful patio in the back and welcome your pooches, even providing them with... More

Log Cabin Cafe is the best place to eat for breakfast on Kings Beach. Their food, service and pricing can't be beat. You will find their ice-cream which is located in the back the best place in Tahoe.

My family goes to North Lake Tahoe every year and every year, we make it a point to go to Log Cabin at least one time during the week. They have one of the best breakfast's around. Their French Toast is amazing and I've heard their benedicts are equally as yummy! Definitely go here!

We did not go to the restaurant since it was closed in the afternoon when we were looking for a place to buy an ice cream cone. We almost left, not realizing that the ice cream shop is behind the cafe off a cute little patio where there are shaded tables & chairs for use. There was a lot of... More

Great breakfast. The Cajun shrimp eggs Benedict are wonderful. Not diet food but delicious. Actually just about anything you order at log cabin is great. Sometimes a long wait but worth it.

The Log Cabin never disappoints us. We come to Tahoe frequently and always stop by for breakfast. Although the dining area is small, it doesn't feel that way. Never had a long wait and the staff is always gracious. Large portions on the food and the wait is comparable to a larger restaurant. There is something to be said about... More

We went to Log Cabin for an early brunch, but having just had breakfast I wasn't very hungry but decided to order their gluten free french toast. Their generous serving of 3 large french toasts were light and fluffy, with whipped butter, strawberries and syrup - and I finished it all! I'm now back home, jetlagged and woke up dreaming... More

My friend and I visited the much lauded Log Cabin for the second time recently. The first time was OK. This time was just plain bad. Since they serve breakfast until closing (2pm) my friend ordered a goat cheese scramble with spinach and I ordered a tuna melt. The first indication that all was not well was when the waitress...
