Hi all,

In order to streamline my business while still continuing to bring you great content and blog posts on our Tahoe/Truckee lifestyle, local events and real estate market, I’ve been working diligently for the past year to bring you a new and much more comprehensive website.

It’s finally done, and I invite all of you to visit my blog’s new home which is now integrated with my website, so you can now ‘One Stop Shop’ for a plethora of information all in one place!

The Global Cafe – Tahoe Vista   Leave a comment

Located across the street from the Tahoe Vista Boat Ramp and Beach, the new Global Cafe is an old building that has been completely remodeled and revamped from its previous life as a Mexican ‘to go’ taqueria.  While I just loved those little tacos with cilantro, onion and lime, this little cafe is a much needed improvement.

Having lived at Tahoe Vista some time ago, I always lamented that there was no place nearby to just walk over and get a latte or breakfast without hopping in my car. With so many vacation hotels, motels and condos in the area in addition to the year round neighborhoods, it was something that was sorely missing.

Well, lament no more! The Global Cafe serves everything from breakfast, to lunch to an early dinner.

On recommendation from the gals running the front end, I had the breakfast burrito with sausage. Not only was it extremely tasty, but it was HUGE! Not being a ravenous, 6 foot, muscle bound buff male ready to conquer some hill, I easily made 4 meals out of it. (Hint: ask for a to go box when you order as you will most likely be taking some of it home.  Or better still, bring your own bag for the leftovers).

And goodness knows, you can’t beat the view! You can sit at the window and gaze out at beautiful Lake Tahoe while having your coffee and reading the paper, or pack it all up and head across the street and dine at the beach. Park it at one of the picnic tables or bring your towel and beach chair along and eat at the waters edge.

In addition to their eclectic breakfast selections, they also serve soups and salads, burgers (both vegetarian and regular), sandwiches and flat bread pizzas. Made with the freshest ingredients, while the food is made fast, this certainly is no fast food joint.

Truckee’s new bookstore!
By Tim Hauserman

This week, the Word After Word Bookstore opened in downtown Truckee. It came just a few weeks after the closing of The Bookshelf, Truckee’s long time independent bookstore, which was located next to Wild Cherries on Donner Pass Road.

Word after Word is tucked right in the middle of Commercial Row next to Uncorked and just a few steps from Bespoke. It is owned by two Truckee women, Andie Keith and Nicolle Sloan, who made the decision to open the business because they felt strongly that Truckee needed a vibrant bookstore. They chose the downtown location to attract not only local book lovers, but also tourists who congregate in the center of town.
