I can't remember if we ate here last time, but they have super fresh food and excellent breads. The homemade soup, sourdough breads and salads are perfect for a lite meal.

Dropped by for a take-out lunch. The place was empty, dark and filthy. The food was unappetizingly displayed in the refrigerated cases. Service unfriendly and slow (and we were the only ones there). The corn chowder was completely flavourless with the odd kernel and carrot slice floating around in it. The ham and brie sandwich was tasty but unexceptional. It... More

My kids are chicken noodle soup fiends and I was on a mission to find a place that served it in LP. Not only did they serve it but they strained it for the kids to get rid of the veggies that the kids didn't want. Now that's service. I would come back here because this place cares about their...

I owe this place a positive review. A couple years back I was so turned off by the rude staff that I let it be known on tripadvisor. Someone called me out for trying to harm a small, local enterprise. Of course I was not trying to do so, just let others know what I had experienced on several occasions.... More

We stayed at the Comfort Inn across the street, and this deli made the location of that hotel more desirable. My husband and I thought the service was great and friendly, it was reasonably priced, and was delicious.

Used to love this place and stop in for lunch quite often. While the food was still okay, the place is really in need of a serious cleaning. Also, it would help if the staff seemed to care a little more...

Great place with delicious fresh food and nice atmosphere, home made bread of multiple kind. First time we took a sourdough bagel and blueberry pancake to go for breakfast and later, an olive bread, chicken sandwich and a small portion of Tuscan chicken. After a 4 days of camping and hiking in the woods, we could not resist to stop... More

Decided to try the sandwiches in this place for a change. Not sure what was going on behind the counter but it wasn't helping our experience. The woman who took our order made a derogatory remark about the competition who names their sandwiches after mountain peaks then sat there reading the paper while the other woman made all our sandwiches...

Dropped in for a bite just before closing (late afternoon at the time we were in Lake Placid). Great soup and sandwiches. Fresh and unique. Good prices. Would definitely go back.
