Good home cooked food.

This is your typical "mom and pop" restaraunt. About eight tables, you order at the counter. Get your own drinks, silverware and napkins and the food is brought out to you. It is very good food and you get a lot of it.

Sandwiches were good, and bread yummy. Staff seemed annoyed, not sure why. Would return to try others.

A little gem...great homemade bread and soups.Baked selections always changing.If you don't have time to dine in,get some loaves of great bread to take home.Original,tasty items for breakfast and lunch.Curried chicken on raisin bread? Sounds strange,delicious! Very casual,nice staff.

We ate here for both breakfast and lunch and neither disappointed. The breakfast hash was incredible and the Adirondack Flapjacks were light and fluffy. We added fruit cup to bring a little healthiness to the meal. For lunch, we had their house-made turkey sandwich and a prosciutto sandwich along with more fruit cup and homemade soup. The meal was awesome.... More

I go here often but it's for the food only. If you get served by the gentleman your good to go...if you get served by the large woman you better not expect any smile or kindness. This lady is not designed by nature for the business she is in and most LP visitors that frequent the place won't disagree. She... More

Good solid breakfast location with bottomless coffee. Quaint indoor, would recommend and try again. Price is a bit high for the portion size. For example, their bagels were good, however, they were on the small size.

We found the service friendly and the menu choices very accommodating. But the dining area is a little gross. The tables & chairs SERIOUSLY need a good cleaning. And as another reviewer pointed out, the baskets (which are lined with a fresh piece of waxed paper) are pretty nasty. Also--the value wasn't so great. I'd expect $8 sandwiches to be... More

We stopped at the Saranac Sourdough for lunch one day when we weren't skiing. It is a small, quaint place that specializes in a wide variety of soups, breads, and sandwiches at reasonable prices. Unfortunately they close at 2pm. I wish they would open for dinner! If you stay at the Comfort Inn, the restaurant is right across the street.

Not only was this "bakery" out of just about every kind of bread on a Saturday afternoon, the woman at the counter was extremely rude to just about every customer in person and on the phone. She was arguing with the staff. Our orders came out in wicker baskets that were caked with old food and crumbs. One waiting customer... More

This is an absolute gem just outside of town. All breads are baked fresh daily which leads to excellent and inventive breakfasts every time we're in town. This little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but take a chance; you'll thank me for it!
