This is the best bakery on the lake and we've eaten at quite a few. There's usually a line out the door but it moves quickly...Nice sunny patio to enjoy your treats or in the Winter there's a fireplace inside. Yummy gourmet goods and fresh baked pastries. We always spend our mornings here getting caffeinated for a long day at... More

We went by every day of our vacation for coffee, chai, pastry. And, went back for the best chicken pot pie we have ever had. It can be packed in the morning, but you can call ahead and have sandwiches made. No wonder it is packed; it's great.

Swiss efficiency and cleanliness team with great breakfast and lunch items to make for a delightful start to my Tahoe day. They are dog friendly, have wifi, and have a choice of indoor or outdoor seating--all very informal. Best part: coffee is brewed by the cup and comes with exquisite crema on top!

This is the best place for bread, a morning treat and cup of coffee, or lunch. Not that fastest, so set some time aside, but worth the wait. Dog friendly also, a +.

This was a good spot for a quick lunch. The food was good but nothing amazing, we got sandwiches. It was a nice place to sit outside and eat. I would go again if it was convenient but could live without it also.

Someone told me about this place and it took me a while to actually try this out. I have driven by this place a dozen times on my way to Homewood and never stopped until this season. This is my new favorite sandwich shop. It has the best bread and pastries in town. The sandwiches are huge. They actually give... More

I can't attest to anything but the pastries...but if they are any indication about the other food, it is all amazing. ...and the macaroons! We stopped by after Easter brunch down the road...and I thought it was ridiculous to stop after eating. But he returned with a box of 5 different items...to try. The next morning...oh my gosh!!! Flaky, raspberry... More

Stopped here on the way to Easter service for coffee and a snack. The latte's here are very good, but the scones are the real attraction. I had the cheese and bacon and my wife had the lemon cream. Both were great. I wish I would have stopped here earlier in order to try the muffins. Every thing in the... More

We went here our first morning for a bagel & coffee before hitting the slopes. We never made it to another place to try. Breakfast sandwiches, great bagels, awesome coffee and the best thing was sitting in front of fireplace to enjoy and talk about the start of our day. Oh - the service was great and they were very...
