      Try the burger lounge. You can rent bicycles nearby and a burger and milk shake or root beer float is very nice after a non-strenuous bike ride.

      In my experience, the best casino coffee shop is at the Lakeside Inn, about a mile east of the border.

      Also there is a small breakfast diner called the Driftwood Cafe (?) on one of the little streets with motels just on the CA side. Good for breakfast.

      Also, if you don't mind driving a little bit, go over Kingsbury Grade to Minden or Gardnerville in Nevada to one of the two or three Basque restaurants on 395.
