After reading reviews for breakfast/lunch places in Truckee, we decided to give this place a try. Close to some great little shops in a classic American small town. We had to wait a while for a table but it was worth it. My husband had an amazing French dip, which you could tell they didn't cut corners on: fresh, toasted roll, perfect portion of meat and tasty au jus. Our son had the pancake/French toast combo and it was average: fluffy pancakes and good bacon. I had the BLT which was served on really good wheat bread. We didn't try what they seem to be known for - their omelets; but only because my husband and I were in the mood for lunch.
It always makes me sad when you go into a place like this and the service is sub-standard. Our order was taken and food was delivered quickly. However, they took the syrup from the table before our son was done using it because they were starting to clean up for the day. A little premature given it was only slightly past 1:00 pm and they close at 2:00 pm. They also dropped off the check before we were done eating, which I feel is always rude. After our check was dropped, we didn't receive any more service and had to flag down someone to bring us napkins. No drink refills and no "thanks for coming in."
If they could get service dialed in to meet the expectation that the article on the back of menu promises, I think this place could be a ton of fun.
