Again, always on the hunt for the best eggs benedict and biscuits and this place was awesome. I know there are a few around the Sacramento/Roseville that I will definitely try. The Truckee location is a great stop on your way up to skiing, or heading up to Tahoe for a day hike or visit.

On our way to Salt Lake City we hit Truckee right at 7:00AM when the restaurant was opening. The service was quick, helpful and delicious. We both had omelet's that were delicious. We just might have to time our trip home for another stop in Truckee to go here!

Very small venue, so they really squeeze you in. The service is great, very efficient. Menu has many unique items on it (eg the "Shake and bake" on the breakfast menu. Food was very good. Worth the squeeze!

Heard about this gem snd thought that I would give it a try. The group of people waiting outside on a Sunday morning provided validation that this is the place to go. As soon as you step inside you are greeted by an eclectic atmosphere that I'm sure, makes many feel right at home. The staff and food are both... More

There are so many omelettes to choose from it takes a while to read over the menu and decide. This place is always busy and you have to squeeze in to get your breakfast or lunch. Even though they are busy, the wait time is short. The wait staff is quick and efficient. Definitely a place to visit when in... More

I've been going to Squeeze-In now for about a year and love coming back each time. The food is fresh and comes out in a timely manner. The people that work there are always super friendly and easy to talk to. During our last visit, we sat in the outside seating with our dog. I think it was the hostess... More
