The Essential Truckee Dining Guide For a Foodie

Welcome to my Truckee Dining Guide! Truckee California is a great spot to visit for fun in the snow in the winter and beautiful hiking and rafting in the summer. If you find yourself in Truckee anytime soon, make sure to add a few (or all!) of these bars and restaurants to your must-hit list. You also might want to visit to the neighboring Lake Tahoe area. Check out my Lake Tahoe Dining Guide here.

Bar of America

Bar of America is a fabulous place to grab lunch or happy hour bites. With excellent cocktails and delicious food, you’ll want to lounge on their sunny patio all day long. 10040 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee, CA 96161

Coffeebar Olympic Valley

Coffeebar has a few locations, but I adore their spot in Olympic Valley. They have modern, yummy, and healthy breakfast options and an awesome patio with a view. Stop here and everyone in your group will be satisfied. 1750 Village East Rd Unit 61, Olympic Valley, CA 96146

Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar.

Another Lake Tahoe gem I adore is Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar. This has some of the best views in Truckee so not only are you enjoying fabulous cocktails and yummy eats but you’re also enjoying views of downtown Truckee while dining. They also have a fabulous brunch offered on Saturday & Sunday which I’ve heard (I have yet to visit it’s on my bucket list) is amazing! Their burger is also one of the BEST Burgers in Tahoe which I highly recommend with a side of Truffle Fries. You’re welcome! 10142 Rue Hilltop, Truckee, CA 96161

Drunken Monkey Sushi

In need of a great sushi spot? Drunken Monkey Sushi is the one I have to include in my Truckee Dining Guide. Of course, I’m a sucker for a good California roll, but all of their other rolls and nigiri are spectacular as well. Also, their noodle bowls are the best to warm up on a chilly day in Truckee. 11253 Brockway Rd Suite #105, Truckee, CA 96161

El Toro Bravo

Of course, my readers know how much I love a good Mexican spot. When in Truckee, you must try El Toro Bravo for some fantastic tacos or delicious carnitas! They have a killer Margarita so be sure to try that. Perfect to refuel after a day of skiing or hiking. 10186 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee, CA 96161

Fiftyfifty Brewing Co.

Fiftyfifty Brewing Co. is the perfect spot to check out when you’re in need of a fantastic burger and a cold beer. The vibe is casual, yet lively and makes for the best place to sit with your group and re-hash the amazing day you just had in Truckee. 11197 Brockway Rd #1, Truckee, CA 96161

Full Belly Deli

I can say with full confidence that Full Belly Deli has the best sandwiches in Truckee, but don’t take my word for it! Stop in for yourself for a perfect breakfast or lunch. 10825 Pioneer Trail #103 Truckee, NV 96161

Truckee Tavern & Grill

One of the most known and most loved restaurants in Truckee is none other than the Truckee Tavern and Grill.

You must hit this restaurant at least once during any given trip to Truckee. 10118 Donner Pass Rd Truckee, CA 96161

Uncorked Truckee
