The staff are friendly and the coffee is good but this place is super slow and the food is mediocre at best. They do have a creative menu which I liked and we went with a classic breakfast with scrambled eggs and home fries and the viet hoagie. The potatoes with the breakfast were greasy and hard, the eggs were... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this place. We both got a coffee and breakfast and loved it so much, we went back the next day and tried new things! The Mexican Spice Latte is one of the best creations I've ever had! Not to sweet, but also has little kick. They were nice enough to explain how they make... More

This turned out to be an excellent choice for breakfast! Our group of five were promptly seated and served quickly. The coffee was outstanding! Our food was very good and cooked from scratch. Our waitress was very attentive and the owner checked to ensure we were pleased. Highly recommended during your visit to South Lake Tahoe!

I used to Italian coffee and what I got here is a cold and untasty latte. It too bad since the place looks gorgeous.

The coffee arrived cold even though we specifically asked it to be very hot. They also don't have 8 oz coffee by default so we got it in to-go cup. The coffee itself was not very good, as my wife didn't like it.

Having read several glowing reviews, we expectantly arrived at "A Cup of Cherries". We were initially put off, because we were left waiting at the door far too long beside the "please wait to be seated sign". Fortunately another customer in the store pointed us out to an employee, or we might still be there. I'm baffled as to why... More

Do you ever travel to places and wonder where the locals eat and hang out? Then this place is for you! The food is fresh, full of flavor and simply amazing. The old school espresso machines pull shots of heavenly delight and will not be displeasing to the pallet.Please support this local business when your in or going through South... More

The crepes are a must try. The paninis are also quite good. There's so much to choose from in the menu and all sounds good.

I've been coming to Tahoe for years and am so glad I just discovered this hidden gem. Amazing, unique menu items, sandwiches, and delicious coffee. Their Island pancakes are really somethin' too! There are also good healthier options and really just food that just boomssss with flavor. In fact, I like this place so much I even used them to... More

From the outside it looks like nothing, you wouldn't even suspect how hospitable and modern the inside looks. The food is good, we were happy with the proximity (across the street) from the lodge and the overall experience.
