Nice spot for breakfast. We had to wait a few minutes to get seated, as it was full that day. Friendly and welcoming staff. We chose the “build your own” omelet which allows you to choose 3 ingredients from a long list of choices. It...More

We had a terrific breakfast here & reasonable prices! A retro-diner type restaurant. They also had an ice cream parlor!

This is by far the best place in Tahoe to get a great breakfast. I have been coming here for almost 20 years. The best is their sausage gravy on well done hash browns. The omelets and pancakes are equally as good. Get their early!

South Lake Tahoe has much to offer in the way of foods and we always go to the Red Hut Cafe to start off our morning at the lake. We never been disappointed with our selections and our servers. Goo and enjoy!

The food was okay, the menu selection was small. I have family that rave about the Red Hut Cafe, but I wasn't impressed. Service was average, wait for a table can be long on weekends and holidays. Better food selection at Denny's or IHOP.
