“We visited Lake Tahoe for a three-day long weekend trip and came across Cuppa while looking for local coffee spots on Yelp. After coming to Cuppa once on the first day of our trip, we became hooked and came back two more times on the remaining mornings of our trip! It was exactly what we were looking for and exactly what we needed to make the mornings of our weekend getaway a little sweeter. The ambiance of the shop was very warm and inviting, it was extremely cozy and well-decorated. I'm originally from an area where there are many coffee spots and cafes to study at or use as a working space, and if I was local to the Lake Tahoe area I could definitely see myself coming here to do some work or study. There was plenty of seating around the shop and everywhere you turned there were people working away on their laptops or catching up with friends. An added bonus was that they had a small shop area with little trinkets and crafts available for purchasing. The breakfast sandwiches here were what kept us coming back for more. The service was quick and the ordering process was efficient and easy, so it lead to a very smooth experience for grabbing a quick bite before spending a long day in the area. It was just what we needed for some fuel before a long day filled with activities! The baristas were also super sweet, as when they noticed we were waiting for quite some time for our drink, they accommodated us accordingly and let us receive compensation for the mishap. Overall, I highly recommend coming to Cuppa whether you are local to the area, or just visiting Lake Tahoe for a short amount of time! The atmosphere was welcoming, the service was quick and easy, and the baristas were super sweet-- Cuppa will not disappoint!“

The Free Bird Cafe
2753 Lake Tahoe Blvd, South Lake Tahoe

“As a traveler, what a better way to not only explore the places but also the taste of a local coffee in the morning and not the same ol Starbucks... This coffee shop is tiny but mighty- offering variations of coffee and teas with a bit of "up a notch" (I had my Dirty Chai with options of Almond milk). There is ample parking spots right in front of the shop but this place does not offer a seating, so take advantage of walk down the beach or near by park with the nice cup of joe!“

“Super sweet local espresso/coffee bar in South Lake. Awesome baristas in Raquel and Sophie. And some of the best and only freshly roasted beans in town. They even make their own locally infused syrups like pine and rosemary My favorite is the home made lavender syrup in an oat milk latte. Always a stop on the way to ski Heavenly. A must visit stop in South Lake for coffees.“

“Cute little stop for a grab and go bite on the road! My girlfriend often drives up to SLT for business and on one of these adventures I had the pleasure to join her. On the drive back, we were craving some quick bfast so this was the perfect stop for bagels and smoothies. In fact, 5 stars JUST for providing vegan cream cheese! Very appreciative of that. Customer service was great, too!“

“Best donuts in SLT! Always get them from the woman who owns this place at the farmers market in the summer and recently finally ventured into the shop a few weeks ago. It is pricy, but everything in SLT is pricy! As a local, these donuts are definitely worth the price!“

“Nice place, we were well taken care of. We ordered the vegetarian burrito and the vegan sandwich.They have vegan cheese and beyond meat so it would be nice if there was a sandwich and a burrito that was completely vegan on the menu. The only vegan option at the moment is the vegetable sandwich (in the photo) which is tasty but not enough for those who are hungry.My suggestion is keep the vegetable sandwich on the menu but add some vegan options using cheese and vegan meat“
