West Shore Cafe & Inn Makes Garwoods look like McDonalds
5160 W Lake Blvd, Homewood CA — (530) 525-5200
West Shore Market Finally, a great take out or eat-in market and deli near Sunnyside. Full stockage of good booze, grillables, deli stuff, healthy snacks, and even gelati. Whoo!
Fire Sign Cafe Blueberry muffins are amazing, plus the bacon is really good, and they have an amazing selections of omelette. I come here every time im in tahoe!!!
Spoon Can't go wrong with the chicken parm. Portions are big. BYOB
Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet Store Deena makes the best everything. And omgomgomg eat the chinese chicken salad or meat loaf sandwich. Oh...Having free wifi doesn't hurt either.  
Suger Pine Cakery Friendly folks and yummy espresso
New Moon Natural Foods Five "C's" salad and Fish Tacos delicious. SOrder ahead if you are in a hurry. Otherwise, shop the organic produce section for excellent quality and value.
The Bridgetender Try the waffle fries.
Moe's Original Bar B Que Good food and reasonably priced. Not the greatest bbq
120 Grove St, Tahoe City CA — (530) 583-4227
Syd's Bagelry Huevos rancheros bagel. Add bacon.
Rosie's Cafe Order the Zucchini loaf. Just like moms, and en entire loaf for $6!
Brooks' Bar & Deck at Edgewood Tahoe The Summer Breeze salad is the best...but get the goat cheese on the side...unless you REALLY like goat cheese.
Sprouts Cafe Tofu bowl? Don't do it. It doesn't have any flavor. Plenty of other things on the menu that are well worth your time and hard earned cash.
Taqueria Jalisco Best Mexican food and best service in town!
Cinnabon Everything the small and big buns
hwy 50, Stateline NV — (775) 588-2411
Super Tacos Great cheap Mexican food. It has outdoor seating and perfect for eating and mountain watching.
Straw Hat Sports Bar Quick friendly service, all the games on, good selection of beers on tap and good selection of food other than Pizza!
Goodfellas Pizza Me gustó la pizza de Goodfellas Pizza. Por $20 tuvimos una deliciosa pizza de pollo barbacoa con aguacate para 3 personas y nos sobró casi la mitad.
