Established in Tahoe. Made in Tahoe.

Everything is made here and baked here in our little mom-and-pop shop; owned and operated by longtime Tahoe City locals, Allison & Brett Sayles.

Sugar Pine Cakery & Cafe is located in the Lake Forest Glen neighborhood of Tahoe City on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.
We offer delicious homemade sweets, savory treats, scrumptious sandwiches, local teas and coffee, and locally-sourced daily specials.
And we never forget about our food allergy folks with vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and nut-free options!

Know before you go.

  • All items are sold on a first come first serve basis. Because everything is baked daily the shelf life is short for our delicious pastries and our baked goods are made in limited quantities. Please take note of our hours and if something really appeals to you then our best advice is to show up early. While we do our absolute best, it is impossible to offer everything consistently. 

  • Parking is very limited in the front of our building and our parking lot is quite small flowing in one direction East to West, painted arrows on the ground are there to guide you. But don’t worry, there are 2 public parking lots nearby within walking distance. If you live local our recommendation is to enjoy the beautiful Tahoe outdoors and walk or bike to us. 

  • We try our best to answer all phone calls but typically the line extends out the door for breakfast and lunch. If we don’t answer it’s only because we are busy helping customers.

  • We are only able to take hot food breakfast orders or lunch orders over the phone. So if you want drinks or pastries you’re going to have to come say hi to us in person to place your order.

“Bought 12 various baked morning pastries, including several vegan options. They were gone in minutes and everyone in the house RAVED about them. Best cinnamon roll I’ve ever had!”
