Places 2 Check Out: Watermans Landing Cafe

Posted: Updated:

What do you if you're an elite paddle boarder who calls Lake Tahoe home? You come up with an idea that will keep you afloat while the snow flies and during the heat of the summer. Ronnie Ayers, and his business partners, opened up Watermans Landing Cafe in Carnelian Bay. "A cocktail napkin business plan where we had a shop to sell food and do paddle board rentals and teach people about SUP. We were like, 'yeah, that'd be great' and it happened."

They feature Alpen Sierra Coffee. It's full organic, single-origin, locally-roasted coffee. They have homemade granola they layer with yogurt and fruit to make a breakfast parfait as good as dessert, but in a totally healthy way. Or do you want something a little more hardy?  "We do breakfast and lunch and we have signature dishes. One's called a 'locals burrito' with a thing we came up with bacon jam."

You can't go wrong with bacon jam! And for lunch, their wraps are filled with meat of your choice, spices and plenty of veggies. Ronnie and his partners don't just fill you up with food, but knowledge on paddling as well. They have boards for rent and sale and they come with some friendly advice for navigating the waters of Lake Tahoe. "We have a paddle board show room. We feature all kinds of brands."

And at Watermans Landing Cafe, the water is never far away. Just steps from the back deck sits Lake Tahoe, awaiting you and your board.

Hours: Monday – Friday : 7am – 5pm
Saturday & Sunday: 7am – 7pm

Address: 5166 North Lake Boulevard, Carnelian Bay, California
