This turned out to be an excellent choice for breakfast! Our group of five were promptly seated and served quickly. The coffee was outstanding! Our food was very good and cooked from scratch. Our waitress was very attentive and the owner checked to ensure we were pleased. Highly recommended during your visit to South Lake Tahoe!

The coffee arrived cold even though we specifically asked it to be very hot. They also don't have 8 oz coffee by default so we got it in to-go cup. The coffee itself was not very good, as my wife didn't like it.

Having read several glowing reviews, we expectantly arrived at "A Cup of Cherries". We were initially put off, because we were left waiting at the door far too long beside the "please wait to be seated sign". Fortunately another customer in the store pointed us out to an employee, or we might still be there. I'm baffled as to why... More

Do you ever travel to places and wonder where the locals eat and hang out? Then this place is for you! The food is fresh, full of flavor and simply amazing. The old school espresso machines pull shots of heavenly delight and will not be displeasing to the pallet.Please support this local business when your in or going through South... More

The crepes are a must try. The paninis are also quite good. There's so much to choose from in the menu and all sounds good.

I've been coming to Tahoe for years and am so glad I just discovered this hidden gem. Amazing, unique menu items, sandwiches, and delicious coffee. Their Island pancakes are really somethin' too! There are also good healthier options and really just food that just boomssss with flavor. In fact, I like this place so much I even used them to... More

From the outside it looks like nothing, you wouldn't even suspect how hospitable and modern the inside looks. The food is good, we were happy with the proximity (across the street) from the lodge and the overall experience.

If I could give a 0 star I would! Based on the recommendation of our amazingly friendly hotel staff we went here before a morning on the slopes. After sitting down for about 5 minutes the waitress, who also seated us, came to the table and "said sorry we are closing the kitchen for a catering order, and aren't serving... More

As my title said, its nothing special, not bad but not worth the high price tag. Food is decent , service is spotty and the place doesn't really have any ambiance. Would skip it next time and head to Artemis instead for great food and the view! Also, cash only!

Cozy place with friendly service to have breakfast. Parking is a little snug but if you can park, you will enter a great place to start your day. The breakfast crepe and the classic breakfast was pretty standard but the Mexican Spice Latte is recommended. It's apparently a latte with cayenne pepper and agave. It's one of those places that...
