It was fully packed on a hot midweek day around 11am, people waiting to be seated. But not for long- it took a maximum 5-10 minutes for us to be shown our table. The choice is huge - all kinds of omelette-, pancake- and waffle menus to choose from. The coffee came super quick, so did the plates. It was... More

Was told by friends that we had to eat here. I found the interior to be dated and in need of some TLC and updating. Especially the booths. I could have used a booster seat.

My wife and I last came here almost 20 years ago and remembered it as one of the best breakfast restaurants in Tahoe. We were afraid that we might be let down....but no way! It was still excellent and the service was amazing. Great environment. Prices are fair as we spent $60 for five people! Highly recommended! Have the pancakes,... More

We loved everything about Heidi's, except the wait on Sunday mornings. But it's worth it. The lightest, fluffiest pancakes west of the Mississippi, served with warm real maple syrup or boysenberry syrup. Great eggs, prepared just how you order them, and wonderful ham steak and home fries. I'm not a coffee drinker, but my husband said their coffee was excellent.... More

We stayed in SLT 2 days and had breakfast here twice. Great menu slection. Food isn't gormet; it's breakfast comfort food. Portions are big. Price isn't bad. And you can get crepes, waffles, pancakes, or French toast - crazy variety. Ambiance is like a Swiss grandma's house. What's not to love!

This place was located directly in front of the hotel we stayed at. Food was not good, but service was good. Deborah, our waitress, was on top of it and was extremely friendly. The manager even came by to see how we were doing. Food was cheap but it's what you'd find at your local Denny's...you get what you pay... More

While I'm glad you received the service we always strive for, Jay, I'm disappointed that your meal wasn't the delicious one we always aim to provide. I hope that you'll give us another chance to show you that breakfast with us can be just as enjoyable as our friendly customer service! Warm regards, Don R., Owner More

Heidi's is an excellent restaurant with a unique menu. When we're in the Tahoe area we always schedule at least one meal there. Heidi's is a breakfast and lunch place so plan accordingly. Pancakes, waffles, crepes, salads and sandwiches. Raspberries, blueberries and other fresh fruits. Yum.
