We visited this restaurant in the beautiful ADK mountains on a whim. The seating was nice (outdoors with beautiful flowers around the patio). Food was very good - excellent choices for vegetarians (which we are). Service was just ok - staff was very friendly, including owner, but seemed disorganized in general and timing wasn't great with regard to drinks, appetizers,... More

An excellent place to get a hearty home style breakfast that offers something different from the usual breakfast joints. Nice atmosphere inside, plus outdoor seating. Great, friendly service. Good place to fuel up before a day of hiking or cycling.

this is the first restaurant that I have ever been to that does not accept cash. too funny...they dont have to deal with change! I had the Cuban Sandwich special and it was outstanding. not a typical cubano...more of a pork loin sandwich but very tasty. We could not resist the desserts and split a piece of plum pie and...

We love this place. They have the best breads, cookies and muffins. We didn't think the prices were too expensive for the quality of the food. The employees are friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is cozy and rustic. We have eaten dinners & lunches here over several years, and we come back every time we're in the area. They use... More

After waiting over an hour in a half empty dining room for our breakfast, the food arrived. We rushed through our meal in order to keep our plans for the afternoon. The reason for the long wait...the waiter never sent our order to the kitchen. Wow. The owner said "mistakes happen" and would not apologize or reduce the bill even... More

We decided to try the ADK Cafe after hearing a lot of hype from people in the area. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The outdoor patio was lovely, but we were constantly swatting at flies. While we considered moving indoors, there were crying misbehaved children present (which I understand can happen in busy summer time), so we stayed outdoors. The artichoke... More

I heard a lot of fuss about this place. I was really hoping for some awesome lunch-to-go and picnic somewhere but was pretty disappointed at the menu. I'm sure it was all delicious, it all just seemed....so normal....Needless to say, I did leave without purchasing, I was so underwhelmed after having such high hopes...I will return for breakfast sometime perhaps....

If you're in a rush, don't come to the ADK Cafe. But if you can relax, have a beer or two before a meal without needing a lot of attention from the wait staff, you'll be rewarded with good food at a fair price. My husband and I stopped by for lunch around 3 on a Saturday afternoon and drank... More

We stopped in at the ADK Café for a pre-hike breakfast on our way from Lake Placid. It is a nice addition to the challenging and every evolving restaurant landscape of Keene and Keene Valley. We sat on the deck in the morning sun and sipped delicious coffee while waiting (a bit too long) for what turned out to be... More
