My husband and I were here bright and early at 5 am. Lots of options to choose from. We each bought a cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee. Cinnamon roll was super soft and had the right amount of spice. Coffee was really good too. We will be back if we are in the area again!

We hosted the after the wedding brunch at our lovely rented home. We initially went to the bakery and placed our order with lots of great suggestions and input from the owners. Suddenly, we realized we had under ordered (not sure what we were thinking). On the morning of the event the bakery was able to help us out with... More

During the drive around the lake, I decided to stop at Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet. It has been years since I stopped here for lunch or a treat. It is just as I remembered it was. The baked items were wonderful. Had to select 3 to take back to the motel. Also purchased a loaf of french bread (which... More

This is one stop for all your food and drink needs before heading to the Lake. Everyone can have their specific sandwich, pick a drink and head out. Spend more time selecting muffins, pastry, cookies and check out their wine selection too. Coffee seems special too.

A great selection of pastries. Very tasty. Wish they had more without nuts. First time I was there one of the staff members was very curt. Second day staff was above average.

Another great find in Tahoe City! A generous iced coffee and an amazing assortment of pastries plus a nice living room to relax for a bit before hitting the trail...(the patio is nice too but the bees were buzzing like crazy so we opted to head indoors...) Good times!

They make their own bread for the sandwiches we ordered to take on a hike. We had the turkey and vegetarian sandwiches, both of which were overstuffed with high quality ingredients. The coffee was strong in a good way. They have sitting areas inside and outside, as well as restrooms. Service was friendly.

What an absolute treat this bakery was! We had chai tea drinks, tuna salad, turkey sandwich and baked goodies.....very delicious! The bakery was crowded; however there were 4 registers opened so the line went quickly and the food was delivered timely. Be aware that during Summer there are lots of wasps around so sitting outside with sweet goodies will attract... More

Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet gets very crowded so they must be doing something right. Unfortunately, I didn't have a positive experience, and would not go back. The sign reads something like "Our line moves fast." It should read "Our line moves fast...at the expense of customer service." Very infrequently, do I encounter rude staff. Typically, when I read a... More

This is a top notch bakery - they type that you wish were in your home town. Great breakfast goodies, as well as cakes and cookies. Many locals seems to come for coffee and a croissant or breakfast sandwich - indoor and outdoor seating, wifi provided.
