They're not always that busy and they do take "call ahead" reservations. But it's as good a breakfast joint as you'll find anywhere. Their own home fries and other breakfast fare are a special event that even the locals line up for. In fact, we...More

This is a mandatory stop when you are at Lake Tahoe. The food is terrific, quality is consistent and the portions are huge. Great breakfast potatoes and the egg dishes are all outstanding. Homemade muffins are delicious, today was pineapple/coconut. Good coffee and great service....More

We had to try The Log Cabin, described as having been "Voted Best Breakfast." It's true. The 5 of us made the short drive from Incline Village, NV to Kings Beach, CA for some morning chow. We waited in the pleasant 70 degree sun for...More

Had time for breakfast while driving thru area, looked up via social media, glad we called ahead as cafe has quite the following even on a Monday. Gargonzola Scramble and Tofu Surprise were really yummy

Three of us ate breakfast here, two had half orders of their selection, two of us had juice and one coffee... $58.00! Two in the group through their food was excellent, mine was pretty average. If I choose, it won’t be here again.

We had breakfast here on a recent visit to North Lake Tahoe. I had a traditional eggs benedict which was excellent - great home made hollandaise sauce. The coffee was strong. The service was fast and friendly. I recommend this spot.

Maybe we stayed in Tahoe one more day because it snowed... or maybe I was dreaming of another breakfast at Log Cabin!!! I did manage two breakfasts here, which from my kitchenette at nearby Cedar Glen Lodge, turned into amazing dinner left-overs. The Irish Cream...More
