I always enjoy going to I Ikefas for lunch and have hamburgers there. They have some of the best hamburgers that you can find within 100 miles.

Driving up to Tahoe and I noticed the large sign. Made a mental note to stop by on the way back. So on our way back home made a quick stop. Didn't regret it, only problem was we couldn't decide which pies to bring back home. We finally decided on the Trio Berry and the Apricot. We could have taken... More

I bought a peach pie, it was excellent. I was told they're known for their berry pies, but by the time I got there (9:30am), the berry pies were sold out!

Ikeda's was right next to the Quality Inn in Auburn and was packed as we left our hotel, so decided to check it out. Cafe was serving breakfast and lunch and the food looked great! Homemade salsas, dips...muffins and pies!! I thought it was a little pricey but probably all organic fruits and vegetables. The pies were pricey at $20.00... More

Be prepared to wait, the parking lot is almost always full. What does that tell you! While you wait for your order, you can buy fresh produce, dried fruit, jams, jelly, and outstanding homemade pies. Easy on and off of Interstate 80.

Located just off hwy 80 between Sacramento and Reno, Ikeda's location is perfect for a quick lunch, dinner or pie break. Tried the crab sandwich (although a tad expensive-it was TOTALLY worth it!), the mushroom burger and 3 kinds of pie. Also bought pesto and Thai peanut sauce to take home. Everything was excellent! Although it was our first time... More

Heard about this place from family. Very good produce plus bakery and restaurant. Many other things to go along with snaking and condiments. Tried the pie and a couple other things. Pie was good not too sweet. Berries and crust both good. Good experience over all. Only draw back was cleanliness. Tables were sticky with food etc. Manager said he... More

Never have liked this place mainly because it is a Mecca for rude yuppie travelers. Good desserts okay at best food. Over the years it seems to be a place for travelers not locals. Definitely a place where The Prius and Subaru crowd will feel cool. Place us all hype and they will charge you for it. I personally would... More

Ikeda's is an institution. They are famous for their fresh pies - apple, berry, pecan, and more. But, it is so much more ! As long as I've been driving to North Lake Tahoe (like over 40 years), Ikeda's has been the place to stop. If you haven't been recently, the next generation owners have stepped up the quality of...
