The Cozy Condo Guide to Tahoe

Food scene
We can't stay at the Cozy Condo without a meal at Tahoe House! This family-owned and operated spot has been a local favorite for over 30 years. For breakfast, they offer coffee brewed to order, and European-style breads and pastries to die for! Our go-to is the iced vanilla latte. For lunch, sandwiches, soups, and salads are available to eat-in or to go. We love the homemade personal chicken pot pie!

One of our favorite spots, right across from the lake! Since 1978, Fire Sign Cafe has brought fresh, homemade breakfast and lunch to the Tahoe basin. Their sandwiches are fantastic, and we love the veggie burger.
