We tried Heidi's for breakfast. I have to say, I was not impressed! The food was overrated, over cooked and some of the breakfast meats were under cooked. A little pricey for breakfast, but kind of expected for Lake Tahoe on the main street. Our Server was very nice, sorry, but will not return for the food.

This is one of the best breakfast spots in South Lake Tahoe. It's always packed. There is so much to choose from that it makes it a difficult choice. You will need to visit many times to try all of the tasty breakfasts.

This place is always packed but somehow we never have to wait long. Service is slow sometimes but the food is worth the wait.

Huge delicious breakfast. We had the gigantic pancake stack with raspberries, country breakfast with biscuits and gravy. Everything was great. Service was on point. Highly recommend Heidi's!

Similar to the IHOP format but a little better. The lightest pancakes ever but let down by cheap processed blueberries and strawberry toppings and the inevitable squirty cream!

This restaurant serves typical good breakfast fare in a chalet setting with large wood booths. What sets this place apart is it's cheerful attentive staff.
