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.

Wasn't my first choice as someplace to eat, but where I wanted to go had an hour and a half wait. Any case, we went in and got confused where the line was since people were just a lump of a crowd. I have to admit that the sandwiches were decent. Not bad, not great, did like the bread. I... More

very friendly people and the pastries that were left were excellent but very disappointing that at 1030 am sold out of over half of their bakery items.

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.
