The restaurant was very small so we ended up chatting with the table across from us. Service was good and food was great. I had an omelette and it was huge. The locals eat here.

I returned a couple of decades later with my child for their Belgian-style waffles. Alas, it remains a memory since they switched to the faster, more rubbery American-style version. Still, a solid and quaint place to relive the past and grub affordably.

Old school diner charm in a rustic cabin. Service was friendly and you tell it was a local crowd. "The Usual" was great for comfort food and priced at $6. Coffee was subpar...way to watery for my taste, but overall I'd come back for the blueberry French toast.

Opens at 6 am, clean and staff fast. Food came in a very short time. French toast tasty, and waffe covering in strawberries and whip cream had the wife smiling/

Stopped in for breakfast and the food was quick out and delicious. Staff was friendly and polite. Lots of options for food, they don't take reservations, so if you come at peak time you may have to wait a bit.

Went to IHOP first, but they had a wait of 45 minutes. Happened on this little GEM - GREAT food, FAST service, REASONABLE prices. This will now be my "go-to" place for breakfast when in South Lake Tahoe. They have a soda fountain and ice cream shop too - can't wait to visit again to check out the ice cream.

Pulled in for breakfast. Bug menu with lots of choices even for those of us who are not fans of egg dominated breakfasts. Staff was attentive and effective. Food was good and there was more than enough of it; none of the four of us finished what was served. Price was inexpensive. Would definitely stop again for breakfast and would... More

This is one of those places that makes you feel comfortable both through the comfort food and the awesome service. This dining area is SUPER small, and I can't imagine how packed it gets on weekends. The whole thing has an old diner feel, and the chicken fried steak was super yummy. Portion sizes are HUGE. Awesome. The two waitresses... More

Great place for breakfast. The portions were generous and service was very good. Went twice and were amazed at how fast we got our food - both times! Reasonably priced for a resort area.
