If you’re staying in South Lake Tahoe be sure to eat breakfast here! Nicest staff and delicious and generous portions. Good prices. Trust me, you won’t need to eat lunch!!

This place is gluten-free and for the healthy eaters the food is good but not really what I enjoy I’m more of a steak and eggs biscuits and gravy, home cooking type breakfast overall it wasn’t bad

Came here with my family for breakfast. We ordered the Pancake Stack and Meat Lover Omelette. I would recommend the Omelette but not the pancakes. They also have a delicious Pumpkin Chi.
