It is an undisputed fact that brunch is the best meal on the planet. The only thing that makes a table full of pancakes, omelettes and pastries even better is the social acceptance of day drinking.

South Lake Tahoe offers many great places to get your brunch on — in addition to other South Shore eateries, these spots are where you should check out the booze — mimosas and Bloody Marys, we’re lookin’ at you.

Sprouts Café

The natural foods eatery serves up a mean Bloody Mary. It features carrot, tomato, beet, celery, parsley and cayenne — simple, yet satisfyingly delicious. The café also recently began serving mimosas, so it’s a perfect spot to get your fix.
