Bear Beach Cafe is proof that lake-view dining at Tahoe is not limited to ritzy restaurants in the high-rise resorts. The cafe is a nice, friendly venue with good, satisfying food right across the street from the lake. Breakfast is served all day, and all of the favorites are available. The omelettes are made with four eggs, and the most popular choice is the Lake View Omelette with avocado, bacon, portobellini mushrooms and jack cheese. Lunch offerings are hearty burgers and sandwiches, while the dinner menu during the summer months is a nod to some finer dining with entrees such as shrimp scampi, choice top sirloin and Dijon chicken and beverages including beer, wine and cocktails.
