Sitting on the picnic table - sipping a hot latte watching the pine trees grow is a perfect way to start your day. The menu is limited but what they make they make perfectly. The grilled cheese is not your normal sandwich - ours were loaded with several cheeses and the added blue cheese made this a unique sandwich that... More

We walked here from the Hyatt Regency Resort. A beautiful .8 mile pathway along Lakeshore Blvd. This is a perfect spot to start your day with a healthy breakfast and coffee. My wife had the oatmeal pancakes and a latte. I had the homemade granola and coffee. The kids went for the breakfast sandwiches. Everything was excellent and we were... More

If you don't like this place you need to get a clue. Cold beers, bike rentals rock. Tasty sami's. Great vibe. Cute bar girls. Places rocks.

Quick pit stop on our Lake Tahoe driving tour. Maybe 2 blocks from lakeshore. Ordered hummus wrap and hot Ruben sandwich. Both sandwiches hit the right places. Sides of chips and watermelon slice/single strawberry.

The food was mouth watering. Great little atmosphere. Kids loved it and the wife and I loved it. Had the sandwiches and smoothies. Definitely worth it. Good prices!

One of my local haunts. Great food and coffee. Can be crowded in the summer and ski days, but that's cause the food and drink rock. I often bring my computer and work from here during the week. Wifi works great. Right on the Tunnel Creek trail, so perfect spot to meet for a hike or mtn. bike ride.

This was an ideal spot for lunch after a long hike. We returned the following day for breakfast. Both meals were very satisfactory, and the kids enjoyed their meals as much as we did. We would go back.

Very nice staff that are located at a convenient location that not only rents snowshoes and bikes, they also have coffee, expresso, breakfast and lunch to meet your needs. A great stop without question.

Thank MrPKI
