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).

Just a very cozy place with a great eats, craft brews and friendly staff. A unique, creative menu and everything we had tasted fresh and delicious. They even have a checkers and chess set next to the fireplace if you are just there for drinks. Will return here every time we are in Tahoe.

This is a small and quaint restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. You can eat inside or outside. Outside has these wonderful square picnic tables that are easy to get in and out of. There is a small bar to sit at where they service wine, beer, and hard cider. The food is very good. We had the Beef Bourguignon (beef... More

I went here with three friends & we all enjoyed our meals. I had the vegetable napoleon & it was flavorful. My friend loved the cioppino and kept talking about it for the remainder of our Tahoe visit! The food was fresh and there were some creative dishes to choose from. This is not a place to go if you're... More

Really cute little cafe with very friendly staff. Vegan options are marked on the menu. Not a huge selection of vegan options but everything we had was very tasty.

Coconut Panko Crusted Tofu is so delicious! Caprese pizza is delicious! They have great food and service. My hubby had the Ginja Ninja Apple cider drink and it was very good which surprised me since I'm not an apple cider fan. I will definitely eat here again when in Tahoe. Wish they had a restaurant in Sacramento.

Friendly service, informal cafe style restaurant. Interesting menu and delicious food choices from around the world. We enjoyed the most divine salted caramel brownie for dessert that I have ever tasted. Portion sizes are generous.

We ate outdoors, which gets a bit buggy in the evening. The restaurant had a family vibe, which I liked. The site is not far from the waterfront, but more wooded. The menu is heavy on fish and seafood, but varied enough that one is likely to find something appealing; we had seafood stew, which I can recommend. No reservations... More
