Great place to go and stay all day!

This was a great find when we were visiting South Lake Tahoe. We went there 3 times in 2 days!

Great vegan options!!! Lots of plant based milks for lattes. Several vegan baked goods. They also have vegan cream cheese, vegan sausage, and vegan cheddar. Oh and they have vegan croissants! Almost everything is baked fresh on the premises.

The best part is the ambiance. Book store with lots of nooks to hang out. AWESOME coworking space! They even have a conference room.

Excellent friendly service.

Seriously - go there now! This is in my top 10 favorite places I have ever been

Pros: Great vegan options, Awesome co-working space , Nice ambiance

Perfect atmosphere

Perfect little coffee shop bookstore with cozy seating and a full shelf of books to read while you enjoy your coffee. The vegan treats were alright but I’m glad there were options and the place was so cozy I didn’t even care that they weren’t that good. Would absolutely go back.

Amazing coffee, vegan desserts!

First of all of happy cow allowed us to give non vegan places 5 stars I would. This place is so adorable, amazing coffee and vegan desserts! They have 4 different plant milks as options... Oat, almond, soy and coconut. Several vegan desserts. We had the chocolate croissant and the tiramisu. Both were incredible! I love they offer real mugs if you are staying for your coffee. The atmosphere is so fabulous you will want to stay and enjoy! Service was excellent with very friendly staff. Bye bye Starbucks... We have a new coffee place.

Pros: Coffee with oat milk, Chocolate vegan croissant, Atmosphere

Yummy and book heaven!

Chocolate croissant and books?! Yes please. Vegan burrito was delicious but they didn’t have the breakfast sammich. We would love to come back to try that out!

Great Spot!

Located in the shopping mall by aleworx, this coffee shop has a great variety of seating. Good for personal or work meetings. They also offer a co-working space for rent. They recently switched to a new baker so they offer a vegan burrito now and no tempeh sandwich.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Breakfast, Good coffee

Comfy and Cozy!

Cuppa Tahoe has filled a much-needed niche in South Lake Tahoe! The decor is warm and inviting as you enter the bookstore front, which includes a selection of vegan/vegetarian books, among many other styles. At the back of the store is a quaint café serving a variety of baked goods, hot drinks, smoothies, and teas. My favorite things to order are the vegan breakfast sandwich, berry crumble, and hibiscus iced tea. There are plenty of options for vegetarians and a nice selection of vegan items. All of the specialty hot drinks and smoothies can be modified as vegan by omitting/substituting with non-dairy milk alternatives. I highly recommend Cuppa Tahoe to anyone living in, or visiting Tahoe!
