Any suggestions for a good breakfast place between
Auburn and Truckee, along I-80.

    Try the Rainbow Lodge for brunch. It's about 20 miles before Truckee.

      Does Ikeda's in Auburn serve breakfast? They definitely have excellent pies....

        Last time we headed up 80, we stopped in Truckee and had breakfast at the Wagon Train Cafe - it's right on Donner Pass Road - and it was tasty.

        Usually, if we are not in a hurry, we stop in Colfax at a small place called the Red Hen or Little Hen where the menu is scrawled on the walls - great food but the cook does one order at a time and it takes forever. One waiter with a pony tail and he reeks of patchouli, but a unique place - again, if you have the time.

          There's a place called Katrinas @456 Grass Valley Hwy. on the left side of 80 that is small and cozy. I haven't been for a long time but it was really good.
