Lots of homemade flavors to chose from. Cones, sundae's or just a scoop in a dish -really good. I have only had ice cream here so I can not rate their menu beyond that. We have been there a few times and the service was not bad. It is a bit pricey so if you take a car load of... More

I don't know who voted this the best breakfast in King's Beach, but, if it is the best, I don't want to try any of the others. Our breakfast was below average. The omelet had all the ingredients as advertised, but, it was way overcooked and not very warm upon arrival. Definitely not tasty. The place was busy, and service... More

I arrived a little after the 7 am opening, and was the second person in the restaurant. Service was good, staff very friendly. I had the Chicken Fajitas Scramble, which was excellent. Healthy portions of chicken and two warm tortillas were included. A large side of potatoes was also included. I went here as they advertise themselves as "The Best... More

We got in early on a Friday morning, and were seated as soon as we got there. The place did fill up quickly, though. We had the pancakes, and while I know there's just so many ways you can do pancakes, these were awesome. We really enjoyed the place and if we're ever back in the area wouldn't hesitate to... More

The place is good for breakfast, huge quantities if you are hungry or with an enormous appetite. I asked for tea, but the water wasn't very hot, and there were no appropriate mugs for tea!! Food was ok, not tasty enough for me!

My dining companion recommended the Arizona French Toast. I was a little skeptical, but decided to try it. It was definitely delicious. I added some custard and fruit to it, and absolutely loved it. He has an egg scramble, and I enjoyed the bites I had of that as well. Generous portions. Great breakfast! It was my second visit, and... More

Our first breakfast stop in Lake Tahoe is always at the "Log Cabin Cafe" in Kings Beach, CA (North Lake Tahoe). The menu is very diverse with a lot of unique dishes such as Cajun Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon $ Capers Eggs Benedict, chocolate chip waffles as well as many others dishes. For those that like the "traditional" breakfast (2... More

this was worth the wait (an hour). we just walked to Jason's and has a fantastic Bloody Mary (better than the ones at the LC) and then back to be seated. It is a crowded setting for large groups, but we enjoyedd the food and the service was fantastic.
