Comfort food with a contemporary twist is the best way to describe Marty’s Café in downtown Truckee. If the description doesn’t convince you of what Marty’s does, the line of people that can develop waiting to get a table should. Open for breakfast and lunch, Marty’s food is savory and hearty and an excellent way to fuel up before a day on the slopes or hitting the trail. Among a list of breakfast options like eggs Benedict and omelettes there are standouts like the green chile and chorizo breakfast burrito with a zesty tomatillo sauce. The lunch menu knocks burgers, sandwiches and Char-Dogs (try the mind-blowing B.L.T. guacamole dog) out of the park. Gooey, warm decadence is brought to the table in the form of a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, Gruyere, cheddar, Swiss and tomatoes. Try Sunday brunch, and if there is a wait, be patient — it's worth it.
