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.

Excellent Breakfast

Whenever going through Truckee, we always try to eat at Squeeze In. There's often a crowd, but it's worth a wait. The atmosphere is fun and funky, the servers are efficient and pleasant, the food is plentiful and excellent. We especially love the great omelettes! Go there, you will be glad you did.

We never miss coming here on our annual ski trips. Wish there was one at home in Atlanta! Great food and friendly service. It never changes. Wish they had grits in addition to potatoes, but i don't see that happening in Truckee!

We have visited the Squeeze Inn many times over the years and we have never been disappointed. The food has always been delicious and the service has been great! Their South Reno location is just as good!

We stopped here with another couple to have lunch while in Truckee. I had been to other Squeeze ins before but this was the original one and I thought "Let's give it a try." It was great! Our waitress was the hit of our lunch...although I have to admit that the food was perfect. I will definitely go here again... More

We live in nearby Incline Village, but were looking for somewhere new to grab breakfast. We hadn't planned to go to Squeeze In, but the restaurant we planned to visit wasn't open yet. It was nasty weather, and maybe that's why it wasn't that crowded yet when we got there (about 8:45am on a Saturday). The place is a hoot:... More

Unique experience, fun and good food, good price, kids loved it. Very, very fun and nice staff and original menu which adds to the experience - but it's definitely a tight atmosphere - and you do "squeeze in". I had the banana pancakes and they were great!

We have been to Lake Tahoe four times. Each time we begin to plan our trip the first thing that we put on our list is Squeeze In!! Great food, friendly staff, fun atmosphere. We are a group of ten and every item we order is delicious!! You should see the forks flying across to everyone's plates.

To each their own, but in my humble opinion, this is by far the BEST breakfast in Truckee. I've had multiple items off their extensive menu, and each dish was delicious.
