“good comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

The service was good. My wife had the blue cheese burger and I had the steak and onion sandwich. The food was good but didn't blow me away. The prices are more reasonable than other restaurants in the area.

“Great location....good dinner at a reasonable price!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We were staying at the Deerfield Lodge (highly recommend..!!) just up the street and decided to pop in for a couple of beers with our 2 dogs. The cafe has outdoor seating so the dogs were not a problem.

While there, we took a look at the menu. After much debating we decided to do take-out as the grounds of the Deerfield Lodge offers a fantastic setting for a nice relaxing dinner and a glass of wine. Try it...!!

My wife ordered the Mediterranean Salmon, which was very good. I had the Chicken Thai Curry which was "OK". I have had better Thai food..!!

The prices are good, and the gal serving us was very friendly so no complaints there.

We were tired after a full day's driving and were looking for a light, relaxing dinner. That's precisely what we got by enjoying our dinner on the patio of our room at the Deerfield Lodge.

Three stars for the Blue Angel Cafe with an additional star for it's proximity to the Deerfield Lodge.

“Lovely Location - Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

I recently attended a wedding reception here in the upstairs portion of this restaurant. The atmosphere was ideal and perfect for the intimate wedding I was a guest of. If the catered food at the reception is indicative of the food in the restaurant - this would be a place I need to come to every time I'm in Tahoe! The service was terrific and very attentive. The food was fresh and yummy. Great Job!

“good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We went to eat dinner here, and were not disappointed. The staff was so friendly, and the ambience was warm. The menu had such a variety of the foods. We had the coconut encrusted tofu- was amazing, and shrimp tacos- which were good too.

“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Me and boyfriend were looking for a place to eat something good and light, before an expected heavy dinner. The hotel owner of where we were staying recommended this place and even gave us a 10% off card. When we got to the place, the waiter explained all the options and she was amazing! We had soup and hush puppies. They were both very good and different.
