Red Hut Cafe - Kingsburg Grade, NV

We eat here every time we're in the Lake Tahoe area. Were here on a Wednesday morning in June at 10 AM and had a 20 minute wait it get in. Worth the wait, the food is great and the servers seem to enjoy their jobs. It's a very "upbeat" place!

I've visited Tahoe for about 15 years. I went on a ski trip and a ski instructor told me the Red Hut is a must before skiing the hills. I have been going every year whether hiking, skiing opr just hang out. The breakfast menu is excellent and the wait staff friendly

It is a tiny cafe. We were five people so had to wait and then also sit on separate tables, because the restaurant is very small. The food was excellent. Coffee did not taste that good. I was thinking it was the milk possibly, rather than the coffee. Huge portion and good value. Good service too.

This is where you must go for breakfast when in the Lake Tahoe area. There are multiple locations but I think this one is quaint and local go here too! Great selection of any breakfast item you would want. Good portions and service

My husband is a retired State Park Ranger from Tahoe, so the Original Red Hut Cafe is always a must when we go to visit family. It has been a Tahoe Landmark since the 50's. The Omlets and pankakes with fruit and whipped cream are great. At the newest location the Red Hut theme and hospitality continues, they have a... More

Friendly service, classic breakfast, good flavor and portions. Try the egg omelettes and biscuits and gravy.

This place has been feeding South Lake Tahoe locals & guests for over 40 years! It is the "go to" place for "generous" breakfasts & lunch's ONLY! Bring your appetite and "not a lot of money". Expect to meet your friends every time you go. You will NOT leave hungry!

Stopped here in April 2015 to enjoy a classic diner breakfast and was sorely disappointed, starting with the coffee that looked more like tea because you could see through it, adding "cream" that was actually milk did not enhance the experience. Giving the benefit of a doubt, we waited for a different pot to come around and not only was... More
