The Squeeze in is a funky breakfast & lunch place in downtown Truckee. The omelets are imaginative and very good. The servings are generous. In the summer they offer seating on the sidewalk which was pretty awesome!

Was able to make it up the mountain and in the door before they closed for lunch. My son is a french toast connoisseur and gave their version a big thumbs up (which is high praise). Huge omelettes that will fill you up all day ... my kind of place.

Why would you go anywhere else for breakfast?? We visit Truckee about once a month and this is our go-to breakfast spot. Food is fantastic, wait staff is awesome, ambiance and aliens are fun. This is pretty much my favorite breakfast spot in the whole world. Don't miss it!

Every time I get up to Truckee, I always have lunch at The Squeeze Inn. I have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the waitresses are always funny and very attentive. Whether you order breakfast or lunch, the food is great. The restaurant has a great atmosphere too.

This place is totally about the experience. When we first walked in, I was skeptical about the food because of the way that the place is decorated. There is so much to look at and I had no idea that it's a chain restaurant. There is so much to choose from on the menu. I'm not kidding you, I think... More

We were lucky enough to come to Squeeze In at 10:00 am, midweek after a holiday. Perfect time of course as it was not busy -so no squeezing in necessary and no wait. We had time to relax and enjoy our coffee and really read their extensive menu which is extremely impressive with choices and variations! Ultimately we all went... More

We recently visited the Squeeze In for breakfast. This would be my second visit. The kids are drawn to this place. It may be the tall whip cream tower and sprinkles they put on the hot chocolate. I would describe this as a fun, bordering on eclectic, locals breakfast hangout. There are more than enough choices on the menu. The... More

We had high expectations based on Tripadvisor and felt like we wasted time, money and a good meal. The omlette had little seasoning and any flavor came from a plastic cup of sauce. the burger was similarly uninteresting. The service was slow as was the food. Most of the contact with the server was being asked repeatedly if we were... More

Place that I always try to go when I am in Truckee. It a great place with friends. We were up in October; less crowded, but still waited. I would guess that the wait is ridiculous when it;s high season. Great breakfast joint, you can definitely fill up on food.

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.
