The atmosphere is "country-like" & has lovely local views if you dine on the patio. We pass this cafe daily & notice there are practically no cars except on busy weekends (ski, summer, Apple Hill) which says locals don't go there. We have gone there several times over the years, The service is good & staff friendly. However, the food leaves much to be desired. At our breakfast the fresh salsa was spoiled & the eggs benedict had a fried (instead of poached) egg on the thinnest English muffin I've ever seen. We no longer eat at Red Apple Cafe

I've driven by this place for a few years on the way up to Tahoe or back. We always drove by because we were on the way to somewhere else. After a friend recommended it to us we made the trip up the hill to check it out. It was well worth it. The food was excellent, the portions were large, the prices quite reasonable and the view over the valley below was spectacular. As we ate out on the patio we watched small planes landing at the Placerville airport to the west of the restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was a little bit of road noise from traffic heading up Highway 50 to Lake Tahoe or to Apple Hill. It wasn't that bad. This place is well worth a stop, even if you're on the way to somewhere else.

Five of us stopped here during a visit to Placerville after having seen it on the way to and from Tahoe.

I had a breakfast quesadilla which was enormous and satisfying! There was plenty of coffee and orange juice on offer. All customers were seated outside which made for a good atmosphere on a beautiful morning. It was reasonably busy but

Each person in our party had something different but the service was prompt and the food all arrived more or less together.

Would be happy to stop by again if passing, as would the two local members of our party.

I like Denny's just because of there breakfasts. This is a really, really good version of that.

On your way to Tahoe or Apple Hill, skiing?

This is my sons favorite part or a ski day. a big hearty breakfast here. Huge, delicious, great biscuits, pasrties...ummmmmmm.

They added a huge deck a couple of years ago that looks out over beautiful valleys. On a warm day for breakfast or a lunch it an excellent stop and a treat for those who know about it. Surprise the family..
