“weak diner fare”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Locals rave about this place and while we were in Tahoe we went to two different locations, once for breakfast and once for lunch. The lunch was not great but everyone said that they specialize in breakfasts, so we tried it again. It was worse than the lunch. the toast was actually burned and the eggs were undercooked. The server was surly and said that the cook was really busy so....that was supposed to make it ok. What the hell happened to decent service? Certainly not going here again.

“This is for the Original one, not the New one (There are in south lake tahoe)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Went there because a local lady recommended it. I found it to be just another over crowded cafe with a very young following, "diner" quality food and the typical california prices.

My breakfast was typical bacon and egg run-of-the-mill breakfast and to break it down the BACON IS FABULOUS! Everything was cooked to order except the hash browns were mushy and a litltle oily. Not so impressive on a whole.

To be fair though, word-of-mouth is "the Waffles and Pancakes are "awesome".

“New clean resturant on Ski run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We ate at the new Red hut on ski run street and the place was very modern and building looked newer than photos show on here. Great food for a good price . nice menu choices and eggs and bacon cooked perfectly.

“Incredible Breakfast!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Big portions (4 egg omelette!) great food and extremely fast service. Beware if you plan on hitting the slopes this will definitely slow you down! Only downside was that the coffee was a little weaker than I would like...
