The Crest Cafe & Catering
Coffee on your way up to the ski resort and beer on your way down. The Crest Cafe has you covered when it comes to these necessities. But wait--there’s more! Way more. The Crest Cafe (and catering), located conveniently at the corner of Highway 89 and Alpine Meadows Rd, offers food items that range from a bagel breakfast to a sushi dinner, and beverages that satisfy your coffee addiction and your love for beer. Stop by this cozy cafe on your way to or from a full day of riding, or whenever you’re passing by on 89. Enjoy the free wifi and the beautiful Truckee River view.
At the Crest Cafe, you’ll sip local Tahoe-brewed coffee alongside local Tahoe-true people. Everyone in the building will appear to know each other as they talk business over a pitcher of PBR, but don’t be intimidated. Just smile, take a seat and dive into your homemade meal. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the employees at the Crest know how to do it. Bagels, housemade cookies, waffles, oatmeal and fruit, a breakfast burrito or sandwich, even pizza for breakfast--whatever you want between 7am and 11:30am, the Crest most likely has it. The Bomb Sando is, well, how do I put this? It’s bomb. As for lunch: ciabatta paninis, a seasonal soup of the day, house or caesar salad, oven-baked sammies, quesadillas, and so much ‘za (short for “pizza”). The Crest’s specialties, however, include a diverse trio of dishes that emanate flavors of Asia, Philadelphia, and somewhere between New Orleans and Mexico. You’ve got choices.
It doesn’t stop there. The Crest Cafe caters parties and events such as those unforgettable Lake Tahoe weddings you may have attended, seen photographs of, or even dreamt about. Trying to find a place to hold your future wedding or event? The staff at the Crest will help you discover the perfect lakefront venue where you’ll share memories with friends and families.
Whether you’re stopping in for a simple cappuccino or housemade ginger brew, few places in Tahoe City can beat the low prices at the Crest. In the mood for a different kind of brew? The Crest has beers bottled and on tap, including Lagunitas IPA and hipster-favorite Pabst Blue Ribbon, and offers incredible happy hours such as Wednesday trivia and burger night, Friday and Saturday wings and pizza night, and the famous Thursday sushi night. Yes, the Crest delights and surprises with their full, separate sushi menu. Of course, there’s sake available. Whatever day it is, the Crest Cafe and Catering has a special something for everyone.
