“Can breakfast really rate 5 stars?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This place comes close to five stars. The menu is extensive and creative. The service is fast and friendly and the food is hot and fresh. I had the wheat pancakes with cooked fresh apples and walnuts. Our table ordered a side of custard cream which appears to be French cream often used to fill cream puffs.
This is a favorite atop for our friends who brought us here and they had nothing but positive things to say.
The space is tight and our round table was tucked into a small corner.
There is one toilet upstairs so the wait was long.
The waiting area is upstairs and includes sofa and a tv/video for the kids.
The prices are higher than you will find in a chain, but the quality is much higher.

“Great place to eat breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We were visiting Lake Tahoe for 3 days and 2 of the days we had breakfast at the Log Cabin Cafe. The food was great and more than we could eat. No problem for 2 people to share a plate. I would highly recommend this as a great place to eat.

“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This may be our favorite breakfast place ever! We tried numerous things on the menu, lobster scramble, chorizo scramble, blueberry pancakes, the breakfast burrito and the crab Benedict. The crab Benedict on a croissant is to die for! The service is wonderful...all the servers were very friendly and very knowledgable. The food is fast and fresh! We will definitely return again when we are in the area. A MUST GO!

“Can't miss!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The food the food the food. OMG the breakfast is a do not miss. Coffee fresh and strong. The food was so tasty! Had pancakes for the kiddies and they were awesome. Egg scrambles were wonderful and choose ingredients from a long list of yummies. The French Toast Tower is to die for. Cinnamon Roll cut in half and covered in the most wonderful homemade cream. Wow. The breakfast potatoes and the house made muffins were so tasty. Can't say enough. Only drawback was service was a bit slow and place is packed so you are sitting with other people basically since tables are so close but the food is worth it. Don't miss it. We will be back. Happy Travels.

“Huge Portions, Quaint Setting and an unbelievable menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a cute and great little place for a family breakfast. It took forever for our order to be taken. That is the only reason I didn't give it a 5. The adult and children's portions are huge! The blueberry pancakes and waffles were especially delicious.
