Great Place for Breakfast

Three friends and I went here for breakfast and enjoyed it a lot. You order at the counter and your number is called by the kitchen to come up and get your order. Service is helpful and friendly, the food is good, the place is clean, and the atmosphere is real country store and relaxed. You can... read more

We always go there. Their breakfast and cafe food is pretty good, but their bakery stuff is the stuff to go for. Its also a great place to buy local honey

The apple fritters were sold out at 1pm. And for good reason! We "settled" for apple cider donuts with cinnamon sugar and a cinnamon roll. Not sure how they could have been better!! So much more is available, but I'm not sure how anyone ever gets past the bakery counter!

I probably shouldn't be eating BLTs as often as I do...not what the doctor would recommend. But I certainly have had enough to know a top notch BLT when I have one. The Lakeside Farms BLT is among the best I've ever had. That would include BLTs made at home with homemade bread. I believe Lakeside uses bacon from Oscars... More

Lakeside, which is basically a country store, also serves lunch. They have excellent sandwiches, including lobster salad, made on any of their great breads. The atmosphere is "country store" and the staff are friendly. You can supplement your lunch with their homemade pastries or ice cream for dessert.

Wonderful place for a family breakfast - lots of character and good eats. Parking lot is difficult to navigate, but worth the effort. Apple cider donuts are the best around! Farm market items are fresh and varied and they have a great selection of old time and unusual candy.

we go there a lot for breakfast in the summer and early fall love the smell of the fresh donuts being made and to look around at all the crafts . Great place to go for a quick easy meal.

If you need wheels or walkers to get around then you might find Lakeside a bit of a challenge. The new craft store has a wonderful ramp, but the barn restaurant and store could discourage you. Having said that, the food is always excellent. I live in the Atlanta area and it is almost impossible to find a good apple... More

I have been going to Lakeside since I was a little girl. As a parent, I now continue the tradition with my family. The sandwiches are good and are large portions but the best thing about Lakeside are the CIDER DONUTS! You can get them hot out of the fryer or buy them by the dozen. Also, the produce is... More
