Love eating breakfast here with the family. Something for all ages.The portions are always more than I can eat but the food is yummy.The weekends you usually have to wait for a table but not too long. You should go here at least once..or twice or everytime you are in Truckee.

The food is always great! Best place for breakfast in Truckee. Kids will love the bear pancake. Decorations and atmosphere have good ambiance. Don't miss this Truckee tradition.

Fantastic breakfast place. I've had lunch here before too, and it's good, but definitey more known for their breakfasts. My big fat Greek omelette is a favorite although I have branched out and tried a few different options and they have all been delicious. Tends to be busy on the weekends so be prepared to wait for a table. Great... More

We checked trip advisor for breakfast in Truckee, and this came up so off we went. It did not disappoint, fantastic omelettes, great coffee, and fast friendly service. Excellent start to our day.

We enjoyed reading the extensive breakfast menu and the plethora of options available. Our pancakes were "OK" albeit a bit dry / granular. The basic omelette (sausage / cheese / mushrooms) was excellent. Potatoes were not remarkable; cool and crunchy is not my first option when it comes to this side dish.

As always great food, wonderful service. We went here while visiting family in Stockton and this place never disappoints. In our party we order tacos, burgers, chicken strips, and everything was amazing! The tacos even came with a cheese skirt!

Bobby Flay did a Throwdown with this restaurant for an omelette competition. I say Squeeze In's omelette was the best as my son got Flay's version. Fun spot to eat and the food was excellent!

Squeeze In specializes in gourmet omelettes. We have over 60 specialty omelettes on our menu. We've got everything from basic cheese, bacon, sausage and veggie combinations to more exotic options like peanut butter, honey and bananas! In fact, we have over 107 quadrillion different possible omelette combinations. Each omelette comes with a large serving of homefried spudz, and bottomless toast and sauce (either homemade creamy mushroom sauce, tomato pesto or cheese sauce).In addition to omelettes, we serve lots of the usual breakfast stuff like eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, toast, potatoes, awesome French Toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and always fresh in-season fruit. We have an extensive lunch menu as well including dozens of creative sandwiches from a classic French Dip to many vegetarian triple-decker classics. We've also got boss burgers, huge burritos, homemade soups and super fresh salads. Oh and did we mention our awesome “flammable” Bloody Marys and huge goblets of champagne and mimosas?!Be sure to join the Squeeze In EggHead Club to earn points and killer hook-ups like a free meal for your birthday and a free bottle of champagne for your anniversary.
