Manzanita Terrace Just outstanding. Do not miss.

Northstar, Truckee CA — (530) 562-2512
The Old Post Office Cafe A local's favorite place. Leave a good tip. Everything is good here.
Rustic Lounge Heirloom cherry tomato salad is the best thing on the menu.
Bacchi's Raviolis are made right there on premises! Minestrone is delicious!
Suger Pine Cakery Friendly folks and yummy espresso
Lanza's Restaurant Big mistake. Bad environment, bad oily food, bad service. Dirty place, the restaurant is made of wood, when the waiter walks, the table shakes, they don't serve you and they trow food on the plate.
Drunken Monkey Order the Hebi Saba sushi. Delish!!!
11253 Brockway Rd, Truckee CA — (530) 582-9755
La Mexicana Meat Market & Taqueria If you like guacamole at all, get some here fore sure! The 8-oz. portion is my pick. So insanely good.
Log Cabin Caffe Whole wheat pancakes.
Char Pit Best burger on the North Shore! Cajun Chicken Sandwich is the best ever! Another location at Sand Harbor beach too!!
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!
Morgan's Lobster Shack & Fish Market Lobster rolls are competitive with some of my favorite East Coast spots
Squeeze In Check in on Foursquare and get their free mimosa special. Their light fare is great for the health nuts.
