Everyone does Tahoe differently. If you’re an intense camper you’re probably somewhere in the middle of the woods cooking bacon over a fire (OK, so not that intense.) Or maybe you’ve rented a house along the lake for a less “serious” Lake Tahoe experience. Who knows. Either way, no matter how much you just so happen to be “roughing it,” Keys Cafe is a gem that’s definitely worth a stop.
I had breakfast there two mornings in a row a couple of months ago for the first time (needles to say, I hardly roughed it!), and the log cabin ambiance of this place reminds you of something of a homey feel. Right off of Lake Tahoe Boulevard, along the “strip,” of South Lake Tahoe so to speak, Keys Cafe sits tucked away in a quaint, tree-filled spot.
They have specials daily ranging anywhere from delicious chorizo breakfast burritos to sweet acai bowls (you can follow for updates on Twitter), and their smoothies are blended to a thick fruity concoction that might have been the best I’ve ever had. So next time you’re up near the Sierras or maybe in SF or Reno, take a trip up to Tahoe and get some yummy eats at Keys! You will not be disappointed!
