What no mention of Sprouts? Maybe I am biased because my friend Tyler owns it but this is my favorite spot.

Sprouts is already on the list.

How about El Papagayo for mex/american at the last minute before heading out of town?
Either that or a pint of booze at Roadrunner.

Yellow Sub, if they still exist.

Scooza on Ski Run, if they are still there. Great Italian food, better than Tep's.

Hoss Hoggs for pork.

Colombo's for burgers if they are still around.

Tortilla Flats in Placerville on Main Street has great mexican food and margaritas. Good stop on the way down the mountain.

sorry if repeat but YES on SPROUTS the best place ever, when it's still light you can get your food and then go have a picnic on the beach, and ALPEN SIERRA coffee shop... totally awesome, lots of light, good place to do homework.

EDIT awesome, both already on the list...

Thanks for the nod to our coffee. I manage Wide Awake and want to let you folks know that dirtbags are welcome here. Soon we'll have some guidebooks on the shelf (hint, hint Chris. want to donate one?) and I'm always happy to sit down and talk shop or climbing with anyone. Ask for Ryan if you stop by. And we have free wireless, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a beer/wine license on the way.
And if anyone else get's the opportunity to take the Woodfords tour with Dan, do it. It's a good one.

Hi Ryan

Thanks for putting together such a great cafe! Definitely the best coffee i have ever had. I think a big part of that is how you make each cup to order. Wide Awake Cafe was the first place I ever saw do that. Now i see other coffee shops in the Bay Area will do that if you request it but they usually charge you extra. Right after I went to Wide Awake I went out a bought a ceramic coffee cone like you guys use. awesome.

I will definitely donate some guides. what is the address to ship them?

PS: please open a wide awake in Mill Valley or Southern Marin. Yes, we have a lot of coffee shops. but none of them are really nice to hang out in AND have great coffee AND have great food.

Is Sprouts still around? Heard a rumor.

By far the best pizza in South Lake is Lake Tahoe Pizza Company. It is on 50 before you get to the Y. Been going there for over 20 years and it is the best. Amazing crust, quality ingredients and opens at 4pm, so no lunch.

Also mentioned was Placerville...right across the street from the Cosmic Cafe is the best breakfast joint anywhere...Sweetie Pies. Wins best breakfast, desserts, etc. every year for over 17 years. Everything, and I mean, everything, is homemade...cinnamon rolls, pies, all kinds of breads. Gotta admit it's my mom's place but try it it will not disappoint. Portions are very large, I recommend going with a few friends and ordering an omelette (turkey and asparagus with hollandaise sauce or veggie are great), french toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy and then all sharing it! They also serve lunch which is excellent also...quiche, real turkey and cranberry sauce on homemade whole wheat bread...can't go wrong! Many a dirtbags frequent there. Had some guys in years ago that had come back from desolation and they couldn't quit "mmmmming" through their whole meal! Oh yeah, and named one of top five breakfast places in Sunset Magazine!

Also in P-ville, if you want a great teriyaki bowl go to Teriyaki Junction on Broadway (McDonalds, Starbucks, Rite Aid shopping center). They make their own teriyaki sauce chocked full of veggies and slow cooked for 9 hours.

Casa Ramos in pville is much better than Tortilla Flats...and awesome margaritas!

If anyone wants more Tahoe/50 corridor recommendations, just email me...happy to help!
