In search of a good espresso I finally found Simply gourmet. I had an espresso drink which was very well prepared and delicious. The service was very friendly. I also had a soup to go which tasted home made...it was very good. The only downgrade? I took the soup to go, the cup they put it in was... read more

Stopped in here for lunch on a recommendation from a friend as well as seeing generally positive reviews online. Very quaint setting, inside of an old country home. It's kind of like a deli/cafeteria style, you order at the counter and they bring the sandwich out to you and you serve yourself the soup/drinks. Not very many tables. 47 sandwiches... More

Simply Gourmet is a great place to pickup a sandwich and soup to go. I can't comment on dine-in, as I've only stopped for take-out. On my last visit to Simply Gourmet I had the #1 sandwich ("Marcy" named after the mountain); roast turkey, cranberry, horseradish sauce, cheddar cheese, thinly sliced green apple and cracked pepper mayo. I choose (fresh... More

Stopped in for lunch; we had the #10 and #13 sandwiches. Both were very good. You enter and walk to the back to order. There is a large menu board describing the '46' sandwiches. There are also menus by the front register if you prefer. After ordering they give you a ticket and you go up front to get anything... More

A cozy deli, with fresh baked bread and roll choices. Many suggested combos for sandwiches or build your own. Fresh soups available and side salads as well. Hard to resist homemade candies and cookies.

Went for the gluten-free option. You can order from a HUGE sandwich menu and have them put any of them on GF bread, which is a big deal for me. Has the corned beef and it was hearty and tasted great. Friend had the turkey club, also very good, and we both had soup. It was fast, the price was... More

I love going here for lunch as their sandwich and salad menus are big enough to satisfy any craving. Priced decently and portions are pretty large, would recommend this place to anyone.

We arrived in Lake Placid Saturday night, went to the early church service Sunday morning, then decided to walk to breakfast. We walked up and down Main Street but couldn't find much that was open or those that were appeared quite busy, plus the wind was very cold, brrrrrrrrr! We decided driving around might be a better idea and found... More

Everyone can find a sandwich or crepe they like here. We ate here twice and both times the bread was fresh and amazing. The variety of choices for bread and meats was awesome. It's definitely worth the trip. Very good for sandwich soap.

My wife and I had lunch at Simply Gourmet, because their sister company, Big Mountain Deli and Creperie on main street, was closed during the week of October 1st (strangely, during the highest visited week to see the fall colors). The place looks nice, and the sandwiches are good. Parking is easy. However, we did not enjoy the staff. They... More
