Absolute MUST for a Carson City landmark breakfast!

All freshly made, home cooking, comfort food! From the fresh squeezed orange juice to the home fries and omelets you will crave! A Carson City tradition!

Great "mom and pop" breakfast place. Everything is made from scratch including the chili con carne omelet which was amazing. Service is great, friendly and accurate even after multiple modifications to standard menu items. Fresh squeezed orange juice is delicious. Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous. The best place for breakfast in Carson City, Nevada. In the photo... More

Awesome breakfast!!! Looking for a breakfast stop on Sunday morning on the way home from Reno to SoCal. Checked trip advisor and found great reviews for Cracker Box and they did not disappoint. Had the kitchen sink omelette, potatoes and whole wheat toast. All were amazing, even the bread was special. Service was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this... More

The simplicity of the restaurant makes eating at the Cracker Box enjoyable. You can see almost every table when you walk in, your noticed and greeted almost immediately, and if you have to wait the food is worth waiting for. Breakfast is everything it should be and lunch time specials are great.

In Carson City, Nevada you'll find really good food at the Cracker Box Restaurant where home cooking is a tradition not just a fad statement. Take a seat at the counter, sit in a booth or just pull up a chair to a table to enjoy breakfast or lunch all which is served daily from 6 am to 2 pm.... More

Pleasantly surprised. Stopped for lunch on the way to Virginia City. Sandwich was a decent size. Small place. Servers were pleasant. ONLY CASH. I did see an ATM in the back near the restrooms. The place was on a corner but could have been easily missed. Was a little bit of a wait and the tables were very close together... More

I have a hard time ordering lunch because I believe their breakfast is amazing. The (Almost World Famous) potatoes are awesome, they cook their eggs just right, and all items are full of flavor and quality. Great location for picky eaters, just make sure you bring cash (They do not take credit cards.). No dinner either, only serving breakfast and... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Lake Tahoe. From the outside it did not look too promising but once we walked in the door, we knew we had chosen wisely. The aroma of coffee and bacon mixed with the diner décor of local color welcomed us. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and started us off with... More

My daughter and her family moved to Carson City a year ago. I was visiting for her birthday. I am very happy to say we went to Cracker Box for her birthday breakfast and I was not let down at all. Our coffee cups where never below half a cup and the food was simple with a twist of just... More
