We had a great breakfast here. Located near our Lodge. Nice folks with good service. Neat historical photographs all around and a nice history of the Cafe. I recommend it.

Four of us had breakfast the morning we left Tahoe. I had the "Usual" - 2 eggs, biscuit w/gravy & hash-browns. The servings were very generous.
