My wife was working until 7:00 pm on New Years so I stopped by the Taildragger Cafe for an early cocktail before we went into town and I can say we had a great time. The restaurant had a early New Years champagne toast which was great and very timely and I was able to get a great burger. The... More

This place has great food and the waitress is fun and sassy. Old coffee shop, you look out onto the runway. Kinda fun to watch the planes come and go. Love the chicken fried steak!! But can never eat it all. Share it with a friend. Burgers are fantastic too!

This is a place that mostly locals know about. Nothing fancy. Great views of the Carson Valley airport out the windows. Hearty breakfasts with large portions and priced right. Can't leave here hungry!
