With a trip to Truckee, California and the Lake Tahoe area, you expect to find incredible beauty. You do not necessarily expect to find restaurants that you will never forget, but still people find just that all the time. This is particularly true for anyone that has ever visited Marty’s Café amidst the rustic charm of what used to be a train station. This is the place to go if you are looking for the best breakfast in Truckee and/or lunch consisting of American fare with a uniquely French twist.
A One of a Kind Place
This café specializing in Cali-French cuisine embodies the term farm-to-table. This is maintained by a dedication by the chef and owner, Marty Carlton, to locally source all ingredients whenever possible. Now moving on to the menu, there is no better place to start your day than at Marty’s. Get off to a good start with something light like fresh and seasonal fruit selection, homemade granola, or the Israeli cous-cous with coconut milk, dried mango, raisins, and almonds. You can also opt for something a bit more substantial like the huevos rancheros or the eggs benedict which changes every day based upon what is fresh at the market. For something very special, get the fluffy French toast and add chocolate fondue!
After experiencing the best breakfast in Truckee here, you will likely want to return later that a day for lunch when you will find a fresh and exciting midday menu. Among the favorites on this menu are thick hoagies, sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs. You can find vegetarian options along with the best meats and cheeses in town. The vegetarian hoagie is very popular, while the burger with Cajun bacon, bleu cheese, jalapeno relish and onion straws is an award-winning burger. This also may be your only opportunity to get a Southwest Sloppy Joe complete with melted Swiss, chili peppers, and guacamole atop garlic bread.
