An eatery that was voted Best Breakfast and Best Lunch for 2022, Best Overall Restaurant in 2013 and 2014 as well as Best Breakfast in 2018, 2019 and 2020, Getaway Cafe has been a favorite destination for alpine comfort cuisine since 2006. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, with breakfast and lunch served daily. During the summer months, their dog-friendly outdoor patio is a big hit with locals and visitors. Known for their Mexican/American fusion, Getaway's house specialties include chilaquiles, deluxe Eggs Benedict and Coconut French Toast. They feature traditional breakfast and other specialty French toasts. Their lunch menu is vast, with homemade soups (they offer two house-made soups and chili daily), huge half-pound burgers and vegetarian sandwiches (both served on freshly baked buns). Draft beer, Bloody Marys and mimosas are also available. For the winter season, they are conveniently located on the way to Kirkwood and Sierra at Tahoe, serving up breakfast burritos, sandwiches and wraps to go to enjoy on the mountain. Getaway serves daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Drop-off catering is available; see their website for details.
