“Great little cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Excellent service, great food and friendly atmosphere. Javier the manager was extremely friendly with the customers and staff making sure everyone was well taken care of. Had the Carolina Connection, potato pancake with a lice of ham, fried egg and country gravy and biscuit. yum! My husband had an omelette and country potatoes, another great dish. Very casual, and right on heavenly village.

“Excellent lunch and breakfast cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

The focus on lunch and breakfast.shows in the quality of the food and range of menu selections. The black bean chicken chilli is outstanding! Service is friendly and prompt and prices are very reasonable. We would come here again

“favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This was perhaps our favorite eating establishment while in Tahoe. Tucked away in a strip type mall, it is a favorite of locals. They only serve breakfast and lunch. Their breakfasts are hardy and excellent. We had fish tacos for lunch and they were very good. The service was very good, and very friendly. A little hard to find, but worth it.

This is a very family-friendly restaurant. The food was very good and the prices reasonable. There are lots of options. We had great service, too. Will definitely be back.
