Very Good Breakfast

We ate breakfast here on Halloween. The Eggs Boo-na-dict were ok. Sauce was not the best. The other in our party had an omelet and it was wonderful. People at all tables seemed to be greatly enjoying themselves. We were in Tahoe three days and had breakfast at Heidi's twice and the Red Hut... read more

It's a pretty small place and from the outside it doesn't look like much, but it is awesome! The food is delicious and the service is great. Everything is very reasonably priced and the portions are huge. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Lake Tahoe.

I've been coming up to Tahoe ever since I can remember (since the 70's). I've passed by this original Red Hut for that long and I've never stopped. We've been going to another popular breakfast location ever since I can remember. Today, that place had no power so we decided to go to the Red Hut. Small hole in the... More

Went for a drive to Lake Tahoe for the day and decided to stop at the spot for dinner before heading to the casino. The food was very mediocre but acceptable. The total was $36 and I used my MasterCard and wrote in a $10 tip along with the total amount of $46. Today I log into my account and... More

The staff are very friendly. Hearty breakfasts are served for your hiking/outdoor adventure for the day. They serve a decent version of Switzerland's rosti. I had the pleasure of being served breakfast by an olympic gold winning member of the 2014 Olympic team. Great traditional diner food!

We were seated right away at 10:30 on a Friday morning. Service was friendly and efficient and our food came quickly. We both had French toast- one with sourdough bread and one with blueberry streusel. Food was delicious. No really unique menu items and waffles are not Belgian but we enjoyed our meals. We had been there before and will... More

We go to Red Hut each and every year during our annual trek to South Lake Tahoe. We have been to all of the locations. If you have a larger group I would recommend this location as they recently renovated and have more seating than ever before. Our family mainly eats the breakfast and if you love crispy waffles this... More

This unassuming little cafe was packed from the time we got there until we left, for good reason. The food was fantastic! I had a waffle with fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries). The waffle was the thin kind, nice and crispy. My husband got sausage patties (3), eggs, hash browns and toast. He's a breakfast lover, and loved... More
