Truckee's favorite restaurants welcome diners back! Celebrate dining out with delicious, locally sourced food and friendly, laidback service in your favorite small town. Eat brunch on a garden patio at a family-owned restaurant or savor a late lunch at a rustic tavern complete with afternoon drinks and dessert. Don't forget your mask!
Marty's Café is all about simplicity mixed with history, just like Truckee. This casual eatery was once a loading dock and freight station for the Southern Pacific Railroad! It's serves up all-day breakfast and lunch with California-French comfort food, like French Toast fondue and Huevos Rancheros. Dine-in service is available Thursday to Monday so grab a table and say hi to the chef while you're there.
Start your day with a big breakfast at Donner Lake Kitchen in Truckee. Mouth-watering specials like fruit filled pancakes, blackberry cream cheese stuffed French Toast or fried chicken eggs benedict topped with avocado and grilled jalapenos go great with a mountain coffee. Take advantage of outdoor seating or sit inside and get to know the family behind this local restaurant.
Lazy Lunches and Afternoon Drinks
Diner heaven is waiting for you at Jax At The Tracks! This local diner was on the Food Network's popular show "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives"! Enjoy diner favorites like chicken pot pie, sandwich melts and cheesesteaks while sitting on the outside patio with your dog. They even have healthy greens for salad lovers! Grab a Butterfinger shake or a banana split to celebrate being able to dine out again!
If pizza is on your mind, head to Old Town Tap for a traditional margarita pizza or a sausage and kale pizza with goat cheese and lemon zest. Share a charcuterie board and sample the 16 beer taps and 12 wine taps on offer. This contemporary pizzeria and local watering hole is open for lunch and dinner every day so be sure to grab a seat on their extended patio!
Head to the rustic Truckee Tavern and Grill for lunch Thursday to Sunday! Relax in their outdoor seating area with a fresh cocktail in your hand and a porkchop or black bean veggie burger on your plate. Make sure to head to Uncorked Wine Bar just downstairs from the Tavern. They're open 7 days a week from 12-8pm and would love to send you home with a delicious bottle of wine.
Summer Dinner on the Patio
Pianeta Restaurant welcomes back guests for Italian dinner cuisine 7 days a week! Reserve a table on the patio and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. Ravioli Bolognese, Risotto Di Mare and Chicken Marsala beckon you to eat every bite but be sure to save room for marbled cheesecake or vanilla bean crème brulee.
The garden patio at Stella at Cedar House is now open for dinner Thursday to Sunday! Spice up your night with savory dishes like baba ganoush, smoked pork tacos, and steak served with fingerling potatoes, sumac red onions and marinated tomatoes. End the evening with fresh sorbet made in house from seasonal fruits and make sure to drink in the summer air as you walk back to your hotel room.
