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.

It's your classic off the wall greasy spoon with eclectic decor and help yourself to the fridge just tell the owner what you had when you leave! Everything is home made down to the jam in the fridge. The Sourdough bread is off the wall great and comes in 11 flavours. Do yourself a Cavour and try them all! It's... More

This charming log cabin houses a wonderful bakery with an extensive list of spectacular sour dough breads. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast and can highly recommend the corned beef hash and eggs which is served with your choice of sour dough toast. This is a small restaurant, so plan accordingly. It is also partially self-serve: you place your order at... More

Another small, very good, restaurant that takes pride in what they prepare, and sell. We especially like their sandwiches, but they also serve breakfast on the premises. Pick out a couple of loaves of bread to take home; you won't be disappointed.

Went here for a late Sunday breakfast. One of the specials was the "Elvis"..peanut butter and banana pancakes. Delicious! Had their homefries/egg skillet dish which was fantastic. Good coffee too!

Started many a great day by having breakfast here and getting a sandwich for lunch for my pack. Food quality and taste is outstanding. Don't forget to order one of their paysannes for breakfast, a real treat. Here is a tip. Although it looks like a full service restaurant, it is not. Simply go to the counter and get a... More

When you walk in, you have no idea what kind of place you have entered. No signage to direct you and you're greeted by the back of a 5 ft tall deli case. When my wife and I paused for a moment inside the door not sure how to proceed, a young man from way down the counter asked if... More
