This is a pleasant place to meet with friends, or to sit alone and read, while eating the fine snacks and good coffee this sparkling coffee house serves.

Came for breakfast and loved the muffins! Wish they had a larger selection for breakfast, but I can't complain about the customizable breakfast sandwiches. Loved it!

This place often appears busy so I tried it seeking lunch and an iced cappuccino. The line was long, but the place smelled of coffee and the pastries looked great. The overhead menu offered several wraps and said they make their own sandwich rolls. I was disappointed they didn't serve iced coffee, but ordered a French Dip and a water.... More

We found some pretty delicious tastes for a light lunch. Lots of wrap choices such as the potato, egg, and bean wrap with a little heat - very, very good. Quiche Lorraine was good, too, with perhaps a crust that was saltier than we preferred. Turkey wrap was quite good. Dessert choices are available - things that go well with... More

A nice change from Starbucks. This place was bustling as it was full of regulars and visitors. Line was long, on two visits, but moved quickly. Breakfast sandwiches were good. Coffee was "branded" but not unique or special in any way. But, they have $1 grab and go cups. That factor all makes the place a gem.

Anywhere that does a "real" Machiatto is doing something right, and Wild Cherries does a lot right.....great coffee, cool decor, smiling team and a friendly vibe.

One of the top two coffee shops in town. Thank goodness for Wild Cherries. Place is always crowded and their food and drinks get you going on cold mountain mornings.

We stop here at least once every time we visit Truckee. We love their Organic Rainforest coffee. It is obvious that it is a favorite spot for locals and visitors to the area. Skip Starbucks and give this place a try!

I don't do coffee although they are known for their coffee and drinks, but I do love great baked goods and they have the best cookies and yummy baked goods in Truckee.
