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

Located in an older house at edge of town. Easy parking and simple to get in and out. Service people were friendly and helpful. Large menu of sandwiches and salads (try the hurricane!) with fresh baked bread. Atmosphere is informal and home style, and the prices are pretty good for Lake Placid. I would go again!

Nothing in the world makes me happier than the Panther Sandwich. Enough said. Im a local and we get lunch on a regular basis here whenever I feel like having a splurge day. It is literally bliss eating the panther.

Cabin Dinners (to go in either microwavable or oven ready containers) are a feature I enjoy from Simply Gourmet. For my most recent one, I chose medalions of pork with black raspberry sauce, home fried potatoes and roasted vegetables. Outstanding!

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

Disappointing to say the least. I have patronized this deli three times now, each time ordering sandwiches to go. This was the last time. Simply not worth the hit or miss experience. My first visit was exasperating due to the very small quantity of meat found between two slices of bread. The second occasion was more successful with additional --... 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.
