Had breakfast and lunch here. Worth the drive thru all the construction. the homemade breads, muffins, etc were outstanding. I loved the omlet and the tuna melt. Great homemade salad dressings too.

Oh the butternut squash soup! Best I've ever had. Loved sitting on the small deck. Greeted by a server who noted our 21 month old grandson son, grabbed a high chair, and said, "Does the dude color?"

Charming outdoor venue. Plentiful and tasty food. Great place to dine. Patio is very near the street do there is quite a bit of traffic noise. The good food makes up for the street noise...at least outside.

Parking can be a little problematic as there are private parking signs all over. We decided they were for the restaurant. We enjoyed our meal in spite of the $1.75 up charge for gluten-free toast - "awesome" according to the next table. The salmon omelet was not the usual chop it up and stir into the eggs, but folded into... More

A charming Lake Tahoe original with great service and food that is comfort food. Good coffee, pancakes, omelets, eggs, bacon, sausage. Traditional breakfast and lunch dishes done right.

I've been going here for years along with many other locals and visitors. The service is always professional and friendly and the breakfasts are wonderful. My favorite is huevos rancheros. Inside is cozy and comfortable and when the deck is open it is delightful.

Breakfast still really good w huge portions. Tough to get seated sometimes, service can be spotty. Overall, very nice, little expensive for breakfast, but quality food.

Stopped by this place while on a drive around the lake. Had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated but that was not an issue. Actually, there were no "issues" with this restaurant. It was a charming little place and was busy. I think we just expected more from the food, and the service was no better than any... More

We had four different dishes and all were great. Tofu scramble, the Rubicon scramble, regular scrambled eggs and silver dollar pancakes. Home fries were fantastic! Great service and beautiful setting. Highly recommended!
