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.

The best omelets on the planet

The best breakfast spot you'll find anywhere. The place is tiny ( squeeze inn) old, funky and downright great. The food is 5 star, waitstaff is outstanding, always on top of things. They have maybe 30 or 40 omelets and other breakfast items. On weekends, be prepared to wait. They have other... read more

After living in Truckee than more years than I would like to admit, the Squeeze in was the premier breakfast place in Truckee. Very small, very narrow, and with a large party you probably cannot sit together. The menu items are the same. Service is the same cheery wait staff. Quality of the omelets is just not what it used... More

We're here on our second visit to Truckee and opted for breakfast based on reviews. Well worth the visit. Squeeze In is one of five locations in the nearby area of Truckee/ Reno. Family run and small by comparison to other spots but much more fun and interesting. There is plenty of graffiti on the walls along with pics from... More

Overall a good experience and decent food. My husband had the flay omlette and was happy with it, said the potatoes were a little dry. I had the French toast with strawberries and banana topping. The cream cheese filling is just that cream cheese, nothing added to it. The strawberries and bananas fresh but not juicy, so syrup (plain is... More

Squeeze In in Truckee is the best. The menu is the same at all locations and service excellent but there is something special for us every time we go to the original location. It is always a five star go back.

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!
