Beautiful Lake Tahoe. I was lucky enough to spend quite a few days in Lake Tahoe with my boyfriend and some friends. Our gracious host Steven was kind enough to take me to a few great food spots.
What: comfort food
Where: Incline Village, Nevada
Nestled in the quaint (and hilly) town of Incline Village, the Wildflower Cafe serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner at reasonable prices. We headed in for breakfast, and definitely did not leave hungry. Huge portions are the norm here–my croissant egg sandwich was the size of my face. The inside was small and felt like we were inside my grandparent’s home. Books rested on shelves above our heads and you could sense the mom-and-pop feel of the whole place. Very cozy.
My croissant egg sandwich was delicious and savory, but the potatoes that came with it were a bit bland and weren’t quite my style. I’m more of a hash brown kind-of-girl. I could only finish about 2/3 of the sandwich, since I can’t share it with my non-egg-eating boyfriend.
The bagel sandwich looked delicious with egg, cheese and Canadian bacon. Yum.
I got to try the hash browns– tasty. Most of the breakfast dishes we tried weren’t out-of-this-world-amazing, but definitely made for a satisfying breakfast. If you’re looking for the best comfort food around Lake Tahoe, I’d say head to Wildflower Cafe. They have plenty of classic American breakfast dishes that are sure to please almost everyone. I’m sure it looks like a completely different place in the winter, and I think it’s be safe to say this little cafe would be a perfect place to warm up with a nice hot meal.
