My husband and I loved the breakfast and ended up going there every morning of our trip! Great coffee too and the service was wonderful.

Quant little diner. It has all the right elements - friendly staff, good coffee and excellent pancakes. Much more character than most of the modern chain resturants offer, but that is to be expected in quirky South Lake Tahoe.

I should have stayed with breakfast. I ordered a Caesar's salad and a burger. The "dinner" salad came on a standard dinner plate and did not entirely cover the plate with one layer. The romaine was wilted and brown. $12.00 for this lovely salad. The burger was just a regular burger, nothing special. In hindsight, I should have sent the... More

Great for breakfast. The restaurant came recommended by some locals. We were not disappointed with the food or the service. Local flare owned by locals. Go and enjoy. The only downside is what every restaurant in Lake Tahoe suffers and that is higher prices than what we are used to.

While visiting South Lake Tahoe, I decided to have breakfast at this location. For years (many years ago) I had dined at the origin Red Hut Cafe further down the Boulevard. As soon as I walked in, I was welcomed by the hostess and shown to a seat. I ordered coffee and received it almost immediately. After reviewing the menu... More

I have really enjoyed this place in the past and today was no exception. Out family stopped in here with some friend this morning and we all a variety of items and they were all enjoyed. The service is friendly and fast the place itself is a fu. Little spot right on the main road and easy to access.

We ate here for breakfast on a Monday hoping to avoid the crowds and we found they were still busy. The food was very good but we didnt like that they give you a mountain of hash browns a small omelet which looks like it might be 2 eggs. We would prefer less hash browns and a larger omelet. The...

On recommendation, we went to the original Red Hut Cafe for breakfast, and we were not disappointed. It doesn't look like much and the atmosphere is nowhere. But, the food more than makes up for that. Very large portions, so go hungry. We actually split an order of pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon, and just barely finished it. Service was... More
