My husband and I usually have breakfast here at least once when we visit Lake Placid. The food is excellent. There is always a wait list - we had to wait almost an hour this time. Well worth it. We had awesome pineapple mimosas and my husband had the steak and eggs, and I had the rosti with eggs over... More

We went in for lunch--but they were serving from the breakfast menu only that day. What good fortune! There was a wide selection of items--everything chosen by those in our party was delicious, piping hot, and reasonably priced. We'd certainly make a point of going there for breakfast or lunch when next in Lake Placid.

Great food and great service. Had breakfast here twice. Both times around 8:30am and it was packed so be warned, you may need to wait but it is worth it. That being said, next time we go we'll try to go earlier as it is a small place. But the food is really filling and my young kids loved it... More

This is the place to have breakfast in Lake Placid! My family ate here 3 out of the 4 breakfasts we had in LP. We tried to go to Generations but first were greeted by the host with "what can I do for you"? Who greets patrons that way in a restaurant. Then were seated and did not get attention... More

We arrived around 7:30am and was seated immediately. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was very good. We would definitely go to this restaurant again.

Pretty sure the "filet" Benedict was a well done cheap cut masquerading as medium rare filet. Both burgers overcooked as well. Reputation greatly exceeds reality.

Tried this place, waited 25 minutes to be seated although there was empty tables, waited another 20 to see a waitress, breakfast was served and it was a grease soaked mess. My husband who eats everything could not eat any of the food served. Would not ever go back. Gross

This is the second time I've tried to give his place a chance, won't even put that time Into this review because that is exactly how the staff made Me feel. Horrible service!! I witnessed the owner belittling one the staff members. Tourist trap with basic cold food!
