Description: Squeeze In specializes in gourmet omelettes. We have over 60 specialty omelettes on our menu. We've got everything from basic cheese, bacon, sausage and veggie combinations to more exotic options like peanut butter, honey and bananas! In fact, we have over 107 quadrillion different possible omelette combinations. Each omelette comes with a large serving of homefried spudz, and bottomless toast and sauce (either homemade creamy mushroom sauce, tomato pesto or cheese sauce).In addition to omelettes, we serve lots of the usual breakfast stuff like eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, toast, potatoes, awesome French Toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and always fresh in-season fruit. We have an extensive lunch menu as well including dozens of creative sandwiches from a classic French Dip to many vegetarian triple-decker classics. We've also got boss burgers, huge burritos, homemade soups and super fresh salads. Oh and did we mention our awesome “flammable” Bloody Marys and huge goblets of champagne and mimosas?!Be sure to join the Squeeze In EggHead Club to earn points and killer hook-ups like a free meal for your birthday and a free bottle of champagne for your anniversary.

Interesting menu items, big portions, good food. Not a place to hang out for a long time and can be a little oily, but you can ask how you want things cooked to make it a little lighter. Good hangover breakfast, good value for the portions.

On the main strip down town, Squeeze In is a must visit if you are in Truckee!!! The Racy Tracy was delicious. Great portion, fresh avocado and amazing sauces. So good went back again to try other things on the menu. (Getting hungry remembering it), The service was great and fast. Opens early so there is time to get food... More

While Squeeze Inn is a longtime Truckee staple, and the hordes of local beckoners would despise my brutal honesty, it is just not that good. Sure, the atmosphere is vibrant, the owners are friendly and charismatic, and surprisingly, it is always packed (because where else are you going to go?) but when I go out to eat, it is for... More

small place crammed with people and a good atmosphere. Great food if a little slow. BUT, sit back and enjoy your coffee while you food is being prepared.

Went for lunch, food was great, service was good but a bit slow - not sure if we came in after a big group - took 20 min to get a salad, atmosphere is always good - certainly will go back

If you're looking for something different for breakfast or lunch, this is the place you want to go. There is quite a selection of food, especially the omelets. The service could have been a little better. The décor is very interesting, if not a little bothersome with scribbles all over everything.

While there are many good restaurants in Truckee, this is our favorite breakfast and lunch place downtown. It isn't that big, and you do have to squeeze in, but the turnover is fast, and any wait is worth it. The menu is large, and it can take more time to decide what to order than it takes for your food... More

If you can't find something for breakfast on their 8 page menu, you can't be pleased. The hangover omelette was excellent with lots of meat. The wheat berry toast is unique and very good. Great service
