... but once you get a taste of the food, you'll know why. The Driftwood Cafe is obviously the "restaurant of choice" for the "locals." You might have to wait a few minutes to get a table, but it's well worth the wait. My wife and I had the Clam Chowder and Seafood Chowder, respectively, and both were delicious. We're "senior citizens" and find the portions at many restaurants simply overwhelming, so in addition to the soups we shared an exquisite spinach salad that was plenty big enough for the two of us.

When you're at South Lake Tahoe, we heartily recommend that you drift into the Driftwood Cafe.

Great staff, and a fresh spinach and fruit salad. Great latte too. My companion had an omelette and loved it.

Not bad, but nothing was great. Service and food quality were just ok. They were rather busy with a huge group, so don't know if that contributed or not?
