We have many friends with special diets, plus we prefer to eat healthier without losing taste. This restaurant somehow manages to do this beautifully...never disappoints! And it's a really warm & inviting atmosphere (love the fireplace on these cold days!). The cost is really reasonable and the service is great. All-in-all, it's our favorite in South Lake Tahoe.

We came to this restaurant upon a recommendation and while we weren't disappointed[ necessarily, we weren't wowed either. It was mid-priced, mid-level food. The server was very nice and attentive but I think we were all hoping for a little more. Maybe the food in Tahoe isn't top notch--it does seem that most places are casual with basic choices, more...

To start, the service and atmosphere were inviting! We enjoyed everything we ordered! The salads, soups, pastas dishes, special burgers were prepared to your liking! Great portion sizes too! Nice relaxing music tunes while enjoying your dinner! Visited twice during our recent stay in South Lake Tahoe.

Great lunch experience. Artichoke heart soup was wonderful. Grilled salmon salad was fresh. Fish and chips was excellent. Sweet potato cheesecake was the best ever.

Cozy quaint small place with a diverse and interesting menu. To begin with, our waitress was really friendly, warm and helpful! I am the vegan/vegetarian in our group and she pointed me to several wonderful items on the menu. The coconut crusted tofu appetizer was delicious as were the beer battered deep fried pickles. I ordered the vegetable napoleon and... More

We had a great lunch here after arriving for a few days skiing in heavenly. The service was great, the atmosphere was cozy and comfortable with a real fire to keep you warm. A simple cafe menu but all beautifully executed. Great for lunch and highly recommended

Fantastic local's restaurant, that deserves far better than it's current Top-30 ranking on Tripadvisor. Quinoa & beet salad was perfection. Sweet potato fries excellent. Chipotle aioli was spot on. Beef burger w/ bacon & avocado was very good, even if the chef missed medium-rare & delivered medium-well patty. If you're picky about your meat, you'd do well to repeat your... More

I wish we had found this place earlier in our stay. The cafe serves simple, tasty food and lovely coffee at very reasonable prices. Plus, you feel under no pressure to eat up and go, like you do at many of the establishments in the 'village'. We had a lovely prosciutto pizza to share (plenty for 2).
