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. You'll also get EggHead-only deals in our monthly newsletter, the EggHead EggZaminer.

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

Located in a historic building in downtown Truckee California this restaurant has a great variety of tasty sandwiches and special breakfasts and omelettes. Portions are generous. Food is well prepared. Sometimes there is a wait especially on weekends but well worth the time. Don't miss this unique restaurant.

OK- If you're visiting Truckee and have that crazy omelette craving...come early (it gets uber crowded on weekends) and "squeeze into" the squeeze In. This Truckee institution makes the best and has the MOST variety of omelettes (almost anywhere). The narrow but deep restaurant is only open until mid-afternoon and does GREAT breakfasts. The graffiti laden walls add to the... More

We arrived with a 30 min wait, we didn't mind, the waitress brought us coffee & tea with honey. The food was great, but the service was over the top. I have just made it my favorite breakfast spot. You will not be disappointed.

This place is great. We have dined at 'Squeeze In' about 10 or so different times and every experience is always amazing. The food/menu is fantastic, the staff is always fun & right on point, and the interior makes for a fun and different experience. We always take our friends from out of town to Squeeze In and they love... More

Ok, so I didn't get the healthiest meal but it was delicious. The atmosphere was a little stressful to my OCD type of cleanliness but our sweet server and yummy food definitely made up for the lack of space. I wouldnt suggest taking a large crowd; ours was tight with 4 people but everyone enjoyed their food and the ingredients... More

This is a tiny place with a wait but it is really worth it. Just go, you won't be disappointed. Service is really good and on top of their game. The food is just delicious. I've been eating here when I'm nearby for at least a decade and I've never had a bad experience or sub par food. It's awesome!

Stopped in Truckee on our way from Reno to Sacramento. there was a wait for about half an hour for the table but we decided to wait it out by visiting other local gift shops and galleries around the restaurant.

The Squeeze is an absolute must when we are in Truckee. The service and the food are both consistently exceptional. I have favorites that are hard not to order, but have never been disappointed when I tried something new. It is small and there is a wait, but it is always so worth hanging in there.
