“Delicious Food, Phenomenal Omelette Selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Make no doubt about it, you cannot be one who cannot make up their mind at this place or you'll go crazy here. The Squeeze In has far over 50 types of omelets to choose from, or you can devise your own.

They are all delicious. The four of us each ordered a different omelette and could hardly decide which we liked best. My tri-tip omelette came in last because the beef was pretty dry. But they surely concoct a sumptuous, huge egg dish - fluffy, perfectly cooked and not too soft or firm. You get your choice of cheese for the eggs, and a good choice of toast. The house potatoes were wonderful, flavorful, and grease-less. Didn't even need ketchup.

The service is very friendly, efficient, and fun. We ate outside on a weekday morning, missed the crowds, and had a leisurely meal. The table was very small for 4 folks (yes, you do squeeze in) and we had to place the water pitcher on the floor which I almost immediately accidentally kicked it over. We and our wait lady had a good laugh.

The prices are higher than most other breakfast places, but the quality and quantity of the food makes it a great value.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This was my first trip to the original Squeeze In. Glad we took the time to stop and experience this gem in Truckee. The service was outstanding. This is a well managed operation. The food is of course very good... and yes, it's more than you should pay for breakfast, but the Squeeze In is more than breakfast - it's an experience. Highly recommend.

“Excellent spot for breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

This place is super cute and yummy! The best gravy I have ever tasted! Worth the wait. If you get there early like we did we had no wait. They also have great vegetarian and even vegan options.

“Local Charm and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

My Wife and along with my Daughter and my Son-in-law went to breakfast on the day after Memorial day at the Squeeze. The first good omen was the fact that downtown Truckee has free parking until 10 AM, so breakfast is the time to go. The next good omen was the two waitresses who traded off giving energetic, excellent, speedy and attentive service with pleasant and gracious manners, that is incredible considering the restaurant was just recovering from a long and busy Memorial day weekend, and I somewhat expected the folks to be tired, not so!. The indoor decor was wonderful, with a colorful local Truckee vibe. My wife and I split the Avocado Bacon omelet. There was a 1.99 split charge but that includes extra potatoes and sauces, so it was well worth it considering that we could not finish our meals even after the split. The meal was up immediately and very good. We did not have the onions on the potatoes, but I think I would have next time. We ordered hot chocolates and they put cake decorating sprinkles on the whipped cream, a bit much, but it was fun. In fact overall, the ambience, the people, the place, the decor and the food made it an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. I highly recommend it. The menu is very large and has something for everyone. One note, you really do "Squeeze In" the place is small.
