Breakfast and Coffee in Lake Tahoe

With outdoor adventures around every turn, the key to a fun and successful day out in Lake Tahoe is a hearty, energizing breakfast, and Incline Village is teeming with excellent options.

The ideal way to begin your day around the lake? A visit to Tunnel Creek Café, where breakfast burritos and sandwiches satisfy the savory, while pancakes and french toast are a treat for the sweet tooth. Pair a pastry or bagel with a hot cup of coffee, courtesy of Hood River Coffee Roasters. And for a bit of flair to start the day, Tunnel Creek Café’s espresso drinks fit the bill perfectly.

And speaking of coffee, locals rave about IV Coffee Lab, and it’s easy to see why. The quiet, relaxed atmosphere lends itself to a peaceful way to begin anew. This quaint local hangout boasts a friendly staff who is happy to prepare your coffee or tea just the way you want it.

Locally handcrafted bagels are the star of the show at Mountain High Sandwich Co. in Incline Village. Here the menu is created with speed in mind, perfect for grabbing an oatmeal, breakfast sandwich or burrito as you head off to explore the lake or mountains.

In nearby Kings Beach, Calif., Kings Café offers outdoor seating, perfect for enjoying a homemade waffle and steaming cup of coffee on a sun-drenched morning.

And when you stay with us at Hyatt Residence Club Lake Tahoe, High Sierra Lodge, our neighboring Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino is where you’ll find Sierra Café, a casual breakfast dining experience highlighted by pool and mountain views.
