Great options, vegetarian as well. Quick service, always kind and even brings your food right to your table. Yummy coffee and chai, and don’t miss the waffle fries, sweet potato or regular. You won’t regret it.

Always love a good restaurant with outdoor seating. Fish tacos very good and waffles as well The local customers- well actually all the customers were quite convivial- and why not on a beautiful, sunny morning with a view of the beach park?

Stayed at kings beach for a few days and this cafe was open by 7 every morning. Good coffee and great people working there. They even let me stay inside in the warmth when I was early before they opened.

Decent fare, a tad high priced for the service, but ample portions make up for the charge. Would avoid lunch crunch hours as it can be very busy despite the quickness of the servers. Seating is very limited.

We came to Kings Cafe for breakfast 2 days in a row during our trip to Tahoe. We highly recommend the White Sando breakfast sandwich! Only negative is that the kitchen is pretty slow, so just expect to wait awhile for your food if you...More

I wasn't sure about the quality of the food I'd be able to get here when we walked in. The menu gave more hope. But the White Sando sandwich I ordered changed my mind. Egg white, turkey, avocado, aioli on wheat toast. Wonderfully delicious! My...More
