Great News for Truckee Coffee Lovers

Coffeebar Drink

If you’re a coffee drinker, then you’ve probably heard of Coffeebar, located in Historic Downtown Truckee, tucked back on Jibboom Street next to the historic jailhouse—a Truckee landmark that makes you feel like stepped back in time 100 years.

From the local’s perspective, Coffeebar (now with three locations: two in Truckee, CA; one in Reno, NV) has a cult-like following. The coffee shop is usually abuzz with local and tourists alike, offering everything from high quality espresso to gelato, sandwiches—even wine and beer. Owner, Greg Buchheister , has a business philosophy that centers on community. You can bring the whole family in for a Saturday breakfast, catch an art show in the evening, or step out on a weeknight for wine tasting with friends. It’s not just about the coffee …

Or is it? Let’s not forget to talk about what draws in hundreds every morning for their ritual jolt. The coffee served is a craft for Buchheister and his team. They take their beans very seriously, which are roasted locally in Reno, NV by Master Roaster, Carl Staub.  These organic, C1 grade coffee beans are the highest grade of coffee available on the market. You’re basically drinking the Ferrari of coffee, and you can taste it.

If you’ve not local to Reno-Tahoe and are craving the taste of a Coffeebar espresso, then it’s your lucky day! They are now offering their beans in their online store. You can have them delivered without leaving the comfort of your home.

If you’re a Coffeebar lover, what’s your drink of choice?

Free S’mores Lakeside


What would summer be without s’mores? They go hand in hand. After a long day of hiking, biking, or swimming in cool Lake Tahoe, cozying up around the bonfire with melty, oozing goodness of chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers is just the ticket. If you’d like to do this lakeside instead of around fire pits in the Village at Squaw, than we have the treat for you!

This summer Monday through Thursday, June 15 and through September 10, our friends at the West Shore Cafe are offering FREE s’mores around their bonfire from 8:30PM to 9PM. Be sure to check their event calendar for exact details as summer goes on.

West Shore Cafe is located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, just a few minute drive from Tahoe City. It’s an excellent stop for food and drinks for the whole family while on the lake this summer, and a fun place to stop before heading back to the spas at Squaw Valley Lodge.
