The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce. - Sir Oliver Wendell Holmes
.... And we might add that a hot cup of coffee simply tastes better in the mountains. Perhaps it’s the fresh air, perhaps it’s the slow pace of life, perhaps it’s the fact that you’re unplugged from grind of daily life and really savoring your morning. No matter the reason, starting your day with a delicious cup of coffee can be a deal breaker for many travelers, so we’ve got you covered on the best coffee spots in the Truckee-Tahoe area!
Coffeebar | Truckee and Squaw Valley
The Ferrari of Coffee
With three locations in the local area, Coffeebar’s high-quality organic C1 grade Italian style espresso quickly became a local hit. In short, they serve locally sourced and roasted coffee that’s the highest grade available on the market. Essentially, the Ferrari of coffees. With a manifesto that is committed to sustainable practices and community investment, Coffeebar continues to wow coffee lovers around Tahoe.

Tahoe House | Tahoe City
Decades of Deliciousness
One of the oldest bakeries in the Tahoe basin, Tahoe House operated as a full-service restaurant for several decades, serving authentic Swiss fare by the Vogt family. In 2001 they stopped serving dinner and transitioned Tahoe House to a European style bakery and retail space, where you can enjoy tasty Swiss pastries, breads, and desserts, and also purchase wines and other sauces and condiments. But the coffee: let’s talk about their coffee! Arguably one of the best in town, each cup is brewed on the spot from a very special European machine, which leaves you with the richest and creamiest cup of joe around! The Swiss really know their chocolates and coffee that’s for sure.
