Came here for lunch. Good menu of both breakfast and lunch options. I like how it's a good old fashion diner, nothing fancy. Had the mushroom Swiss burger. It was very delish. The mushrooms are thick sliced not thin which gave the burger a really nice texture. They constantly refill your coffee cup, A+!

Coffee & is a basic breakfast and lunch diner on the main street of downtown Truckee. This place has been around for a long time and the décor Is rather Spartan, but the food and service make up for that. Although Truckee is a tourist town, you get the feeling that many of the customers are regulars. The breakfast menu... More

Travelers hustling along Interstate 80 need to take a moment; turn off the highway at Truckee, California; and have a wonderful lunch at Coffee &. The menu may tend to scare you until you realize all the items that go along with what is being ordered. The quality of the food is very good. The staff is friendly and eager... More

Five of us stopped in to have both breakfast & lunch. Each of the dishes were delicious after being served together in a timely manner. The wait staff were courteous & kept our coffee cups full. We highly recommend it!

Five of us for lunch at 1:00 PM. Plenty of room, so got the round table by the window. Standard coffee shop-type decor. A bright, friendly waitress with a 1000-watt smile. We ordered tuna melt, patty melt, fancy chicken sandwich, chili cheeseburger, and a half veggie san with pea soup. Every meal was fresh and tasty, more than all but... More

This is a nice, homey spot. The food is quite good, the service is fine, but there is nothing spectacular here. Don't get me wrong, I would go back again, but there are a lot of places in Truckee to grab a bite, so Coffee and Restaurant needs to up the game and be a really good spot. One thing... More

I've been to Truckee many times and had 1 hour to spare before tow truck came. Great BLT sandwich & double burger. Got right in on 4th of July and was very pleased. Great food & service; great place to stop for breakfast or lunch

Stopped in with my daughter while window shopping in Truckee. Coffee was great (bottomless :) ) and the salads we ordered were amazing, tomatoes and avocadoes were so fresh. Had hoped to have room for pie, but we were stuffed. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful.

Food was fresh, tasty and staff was friendly. Granted, no huge wait time, as we arrived towards 10 am. I have been here with friends before and always felt unhurried and valued as a customer.

First off it looks like a Mom and Pop shop and we like supporting those when we travel, hence the reason we stopped here days before Thanksgiving. We DO like Americana and I am NOT spoiled, I've waited tables and know what good service looks like. We all were hungry, service was slow to take our order given there was... More
