Excellent pastrami and awesome hot coco

Me and my wife went here for an early lunch. I had the pastrami sandwich which was excellent with the spicy brown mustard. My wife had the tri-tip sandwich which was amazing and of course don't forget the hot coco! Nice fresh food only reason it's not 5 star is the price was high for a sandwich.

Stopped for lunch with my husband and three littles - quaint and casual. Food was awesome and good amount for the price. I had the pulled pork quesadilla and my husband had the black jack & ham panini on naan bread. Both were delicious! My kids split the grilled cheese - it was only $2.50 and came with fresh strawberries.... More

A great addition to the Incline community, the cafe serves breakfast and lunch - many of the patrons are bikers, hikers, and runners starting or ending their outings. The food is excellent.

This place has the best coffee, staff, and Reuben sandwich (the turkey pesto is excellent too). This is a friendly place that's right on the Tunnel Creek trail; I like to stop here, grab a snack, then hike to the beach. In the summer, they host a great Farmer's Market on Wednesday nights.

This is a hidden gem. The sandwiches with Naan Bread are tasty, fresh and unexpected. Small, cabin feel but very cozy.

This quaint little cafe marks one of the trailheads for the tunnel creek trail and ultimately the Flume trail. Pop in before your hike or ride for a smoothie, some Lake Tahoe tap water or a bite to eat, and reward yourself with a beer and a sandwich after your excursion on the trails.

My husband and I had lunch here today for the first time! We ordered the tri tip on sourdough panini and the turkey pesto on sourdough panini and both were delicious! As was the iced tea! They were each $8.95 and came with potato chips. The atmosphere is very cozy, casual, and comfortable. The location is just below the famous... More

Located at the start of the Tunnel Creek trail access, this cafe offers lifts up the hill for cyclists (the first part of this is pretty steep, so the lift is very welcome). A nice selection of sandwiches, burgers and soups. Outdoor seating available in nice weather.

the place is small but 'homey' and comfy. We came here for breakfast and the location is pretty. It wasn't busy; given the the small size. We ordered the burrito breakfast and the meat lover skillet breakfast. This is a good place to come for a quick/fast bite and some coffee, cafe. Not a place if you want the traditional... More
