Thanks, C_F! Our service is special because so many of our service personnel, from hosts to servers to bussers have worked with us for 5, 10 even 20+ years. We owe our success to these folks. I hope we'll get to have you back again...More

Heidi’s Pancake House is an excellent place to go for breakfast. They have been an established business, and a favorite restaurant in S. Lake Tahoe since 1964 and easy to find, just look for a yellow Swiss Chalet! Their specialties are 4-egg omelets and pancakes...More

Can't go wrong with Heidi's. Their buckwheat pancakes are great (and gluten free!), and the bacon/sausage is cooked perfectly. The breakfast potatoes are crispy and yummy, and the staff is so friendly. Definitely recommend stopping here while in South Lake Tahoe.

I'm glad you had a good meal with us, but even with 3 cocktails that bill for 2 people sounds much higher than I expected. In any case, I'm glad you loved our generous portions, prompt service and high quality. Until then, Don R., Owner

I love going out for breakfast and Heidi’s doesn’t disappoint. Great food, great service - large portions. I had an omelet which was delicious and fluffy. The decor has a vintage feel to it. Great breakfast place.

Not from my memory. We sat at a booth...service was very fast and the backs on the booths are pretty high so there is some privacy.
