“Breakfast anyone??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

If you are one of those like me that likes to get up early, and you happen to be driving around the lake on the west shore early in the morning, you must stop here for breakfast. It does get crowded, but most good places do! Put your name on the list and enjoy coffee in the Annex around back. Great place to relax while waiting for your table. Had the salmon omelet. OMG. Delicious.

“As good as it gets.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

If you're hungry and want good food and service this place is hard to beat. Tried to Joes special or the vegan Eggs Benedict.

“Wonderful breakfast spot with great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This breakfast spot was so amazing that we went there twice in three days! The food is so good, and the service is also very good. We shared a breakfast scramble and the eggs were cooked perfectly and I am very picky about my eggs. The potatoes with good, and they have a daily homemade baked good. One day it was a pear muffin, and the other coffee cake with cranberries both yummy. They have inside and outside seating and a wait sometimes but there are benches outside to sit on. It is just across the street from the Sunnyside Market so if you passed that you just missed it. Looks like a small house from the street. Doesn't have a lake view but the lake and a beach is just across the street, and you can also rent kayaks there. A not to miss breakfast.

“Best breakfast in Tahoe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This place open daily until 2:00. It serves breakfast until closing with lunch items too if you are closer to that time of the day. You will not walk away hungry. The food is great and the place is packed by locals and visitors. Yum!
