The place is good for breakfast, huge quantities if you are hungry or with an enormous appetite. I asked for tea, but the water wasn't very hot, and there were no appropriate mugs for tea!! Food was ok, not tasty enough for me!

My dining companion recommended the Arizona French Toast. I was a little skeptical, but decided to try it. It was definitely delicious. I added some custard and fruit to it, and absolutely loved it. He has an egg scramble, and I enjoyed the bites I had of that as well. Generous portions. Great breakfast! It was my second visit, and... More

Our first breakfast stop in Lake Tahoe is always at the "Log Cabin Cafe" in Kings Beach, CA (North Lake Tahoe). The menu is very diverse with a lot of unique dishes such as Cajun Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon $ Capers Eggs Benedict, chocolate chip waffles as well as many others dishes. For those that like the "traditional" breakfast (2... More

this was worth the wait (an hour). we just walked to Jason's and has a fantastic Bloody Mary (better than the ones at the LC) and then back to be seated. It is a crowded setting for large groups, but we enjoyedd the food and the service was fantastic.

If you read any reviews here you will see the Log Cabin Cafe is crazy crowded during holidays times. We tried to get in on New Years Eve morning around 10 AM only to learn we had a 1.5 hour wait. We decided to beat the hung-over crowd on New Years Day and get there about 9 AM. Perfect. We... More

This place is always crowded, so be prepared to wait. The food is so well prepared here. I had the salmon egg scramble and it was delicious. The potatoes on the side were the best breakfast potatoes I've ever had. Service was upbeat, but confused. I hadn't been here in awhile, and I am so pleased the food is just... More

Just had breakfast at the Log Cabin. The food and service was excellent. I would highly recommend the French Toast Tower. We loved the ambience! The only issue is that the portions are small, making it a little pricey. However, we will be returning...

Because then I will have to wait longer before I get to eat there again!!! So the egg benedict is fantastic which means that their hollandaise is awesome and they just know how to use combine various combinations and prepare them well. Definitely don't miss the lobster or smoked salmon benedicts. Their sweet stuff (pancakes, French toast and waffles) are... More
