Yummy blueberry pancakes and French toast. Quick service. I think a family owns it and the presumable owner/dad (not sure on this) was very friendly and even gave us advice on bike trails. Our waitress was friendly and prompt. We sat at the counter where you can watch how they run and you could tell they are a well-oiled machine! I would definitely recommend Bert's place for breakfast!

A classic Tahoe experience. Located on High 50, near the "Y", makes it easy to get to for those driving from the Bay Area to South Shore.
Bert's feels like old timey South Shore, the one I knew from the 60's. Right on the highway, big windows remind you that you are in the forest. A simple design where the restaurant's energy is devoted to it's customers.
No high brow, pretentious cuisine, this is home made fare, just lime you have hoped to find.
They have fresh squeezed orange juice, home fries, great salsa, oatmeal and THE breakfast, just like you would make if you found the time to shop, cook and had someone to clean up after you. Good news! You have Bert's.
You will find a great menu, friendly service, and yes you can get lunch too.
They are open 6:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
I LOVE it!!!

Our family has eaten breakfast at Bert's for several years now and have always been happy campers when leaving!
Food is fresh and homemade, large portions and brought to the table by happy, friendly servers.
If the "wait" line seems too long, wait anyway, as we have never had to wait more than 15min. for a table. And the "wait is sooo worth it"!

Bon Appetite !!

This was our first vacation in Tahoe and there were plenty of restaurants in town to eat at. However, we found this place for breakfast on our last day there and it was too bad we didn't find it the first day! Our familes had breakfast there and had a wonderful experience. Since there were 9 of us we all had a variety of items off the menu. All of it was wonderful and even met the owner who was out and about on the floor taking care of his customers. I personally had the Crepe Eggs Benedict and it was a blend of sweet and salty mix that I ate in a hurry. The portions were large and the staff was friendly. Would definitely eat again there and maybe try some lunch and dinner.
