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.

fun and delicious

My husband and I stopped in Truckee on our way to Squaw around noon on a Saturday, so I was expecting a long wait. However, we were second ones on the list and were seated within 5 minutes. Service was prompt, our bloody marys came immediately! I loved it, my hubs thought they were too spicy. He... read more

I can't seem to find a Squeeze In for Redwood City on Trip Advisor, probably because it is still quite new. So, I figured I'd rate it here (hope you don't mind). I went to the RWC Squeeze In with my parents today (I am visiting home from OH). My mom was telling me that the restaurant was opening at... More

I almost gave a four star rating but the service was so good it didn't seem fair. And the only reason I considered the four star was my breakfast sausage seemed like it had been sitting for awhile then reheated. I know. I'm being picky. Great restaurant. Definitely go.

So happy we revisited the Squeeze In - service was over the top and I probably spontaneously said "this is so good!" three times during our meal. Our server was so great - making suggestions for the kids and giving us great tips on our meal. I loved how every server stopped by our table asking if wanted coffee refills,... More

A recent trip to Truckee to meet with old friends brought us to this place which has fun craziness all over the walls and an overwhelmingly lengthy menu. One of our party ordered a waffle plate heaped with fruity, sugary, carby goodness, and a side of chocolate covered bacon with whipped cream and blueberries. We all tasted the bacon and... More

Tiny place, but the food is great! It's a fun stop, it has been on Diner's, Drive-In and Dives, and I can see why. I had the Huevous Montana, and it was delicious. Nice portion size, not massive which I like. VERY crowded on peak days, so watch your timing. Service was great as well!

Great breakfast place in old part of Truckee. If you like omelets, this is the place to go. Many good ones, I just prefer the items like french toast and classic items.

We enjoy dining out while in the Truckee area. Squeeze In is one of our informal and affordable 'go-to' breakfast/lunch restaurants in Truckee. It's fun to for everyone to share several entrees, as they're quite generous. So, come hungry!

We enjoyed a breakfast here on a recent trip to California. The place has real character and loads of Americana dotted around the place. You are free to draw on the walls and leave a message if you like too! The portions were pretty sizeable and we found the menu extensive with plenty of choice. Staff were on the ball... More

I never, ever complain or write bad reviews. If I have a bad experience, I just don't return. But I can't let this one go. I can honestly say this is the second worst meal I've ever had (I'm 50 years old so I've had lots of meals). I started off with a Bloody Mary that came with a rotten... More
