Was hungry for belgium waffles, I was expecting crispy round waffles and thick syrup. Syrup too thin and not too flavorful. The place was packed as you'd expect for Sunday around noon. Cozy but dated. They've been open over 30 years. I loved the homemade sausage links and patties. Great quality. I'll try my luck with Red Hut next visit.... More

I can certainly appreciate the fact that people have different tastes and preferences, and I'm confident there's lots of other options on our menu that would win you over as much as the sausage links and patties did. I hope we'll have the chance to make a better impression if you're still in the area. Best, Don R., Owner More

This place has been there a long time and they obviously know what they are doing. Great service, delicious food. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Went back a second time! pancakes, waffles, crepes, and very good bacon and sausage, yum!

We went in on a Monday, late in the morning. All of the staff was right on top of things, getting us everything we asked for it, in a quick and friendly manner. Our waitress even made some really good suggestions regarding our meals. Our food was very good. The menu has a wide variety of offerings including my favorite... More

It looked like a long wait when we showed up on a Sunday at 10 am but we were seated within 5-10 minutes. We enjoyed some yummy breakfast and friendly service.

2nd time in Tahoe in 2 years and absolutely love this place I try to go as often as I can. It's pricey potentially but portions are big and you don't leave lacking. The fact that it's good this far apart speaks volumes and shows consistency and the strive for quality that will make me return for years to come!!

We came here for Sunday breakfast and were pleasantly surprised at the large selection of breakfast offerings. Pancakes, crepes, eggs, hash were all great and we left feeling so full we did not eat again until the evening! Our server, Aline, was fabulous and her attentive service really contributed to a very enjoyable meal. We look forward to coming here... More

Go hungry and expect to roll out. I ordered corned beef hash and eggs, it came with an extra two plates of pancakes, grits and liquor. Tasty but very indulgent, I felt guilty walking out.

We read that Heidi's received a #1 rating for breakfast. It was average, not #1. The crepes were delicious especially with a squeeze of fresh lemon. But the egg skillet and eggs & sausage were served cold and needed microwaved. Our server, Juan, was very attentive and apologetic, but eggs microwaved do not come back as ordered. ...
