South Shore Restaurants in Lake Tahoe

The South Shore area of Lake Tahoe is the busiest and most bustling of the small towns around the lake. This is the place where you can find restaurants that serve everything from breakfast bagels to late-night pub grub.

For breakfast places, try out Rude Brothers Bagels for an excellent selection of the chewy bagels and fair trade coffee. Other great places for breakfast include both the Red Hut Waffle Shops in South Lake Tahoe (old and new), Heidi's Pancake House, the Driftwood Cafe and Sprouts Natural Foods. Many of these places can get packed on ski weekend mornings, so if you are just looking for a quick bite and a coffee, try the Alpen Sierra Coffee Roasting restaurant, or Tahoe Java.

For a hardy lunch after a morning of skiing, riding or hiking I would suggest Sprouts Natural Foods for some fresh, homemade bread and sandwiches, Freshies Restaurant with a twist on Pacific Island food, the lunch specials at Brothers Burritos, the Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine or Orchid's Authentic Thai Cuisine. For something simple like a hamburger and fries, go to Izzy's Burger Spa and eat outside on their deck or head to the Burger Lounge (look for the giant coffee cup).

Dinner can be casual or a time to dress up. Head to Café Fiore or Nephele's for some romance or to the Fresh Ketch or the Blue Water Bistro for some seafood on the lake. For some great sushi, try Kalani's at Heavenly or Off the Hook Sushi Bar. If you want to dress it down, get a pizza at the Lake Tahoe Pizza Company or the popular Brewery at Lake Tahoe.
