Old Tahoe Charm. Fresh California Cuisine.
A picturesque lakefront restaurant and inn located at Lake Tahoe's West Shore, the West Shore Cafe offers guests delicious cuisine and superb service amidst some of the world's most beautiful surroundings. West Shore Cafe offers a festive and romantic lake view setting with elegant, yet approachable cuisine with a seasonal focus. As a year-round destination, the West Shore Cafe beckons skiers during the winter months and is mere steps from sister property, Homewood Mountain Resort. During summer months, the West Shore Cafe's location is ideal for those cruising the bike path, as well as boaters touring Lake Tahoe. West Shore Cafe hosts several buoys, and welcomes boaters and kayakers ashore.

The West Shore Cafe & Inn's restaurant is currently closed for the shoulder season. We will resume dining service in December with a new winter seasonal culinary offering.
