    The Old Post Office is a good hole-in-the-wall local's place for breakfast. The inside is typical road side diner, mixed up with a bit of mountain town lodge.

    The menu is pretty big and it may take you a while to make a decision. But regardless of which you choose, you will not leave hungry since the portions are big and the quality is good.

    Open daily 6:30am–2pm

    Favorite Dish: The standard breakfasts like the omelets and eggs are good. The pancakes are large and thick. The eggs Benedict are great, but I'd recommend you take a look at the specials listed on the table and opt for the Crab Cake Benedict if its on the board for the day.

    Jason's is a long standing landmark on the North Shore. It has a good outdoor patio for summer time, but inside is decorated like an old log cabin. In the summer, its popular to have some appetizers and drinks on the patio, otherwise all year the lunches and dinners are good too.

    Favorite Dish: The salad bar is always fresh and can be a stand-alone meal or added to your entree for a couple dollars. The salmon is always good, as are the burgers and sandwiches.

    Hands down the best Italian food on the North Shore. The menu has remained relatively unchanged in the last ~15 years, probably because they realized you should not mess with a good thing. The restaurant has booths and tables set in a relatively small, intamate setting.

    There is also a well stocked bar on the right side, which is a good hang out for locals during any season.

    Favorite Dish: All dishes are great, but the Eggplant Parmagiana is noteably their most popular. The Marinated Chicken (in red wine and rosemary is a favorite of mine).

    The wine list is also quite long. Due to popularity, the wine stocks are turned over frequently, so the wines are fresh and quality monitored.
    Dishes are quite large, so you'll likely have left overs for lunch the next day.

    If you are a skier, then you have probably done the research on the Tahoe resorts to know what areas are of interest to you.

    But if you have never gone skiing/snowboarding, or if you simply want to go sledding, then I recommend Northstar. It is just between Kings Beach and Truckee, so it is the easiest to get to. It is also predominately an intermediate skill level mountain, so you can find a greater number of easy slopes that will not intimidate a beginner.

    In the summer, the hills are also open to a range of mountain biking and hiking.

    Other local resorts like Squaw, Alpine, Sugar Bowl, etc. cater more to advanced and expert skiers.

    Equipment: All equipment is available for rent, but to save some money, bring it if you have it, or try renting from a more economical shop in town.
