Always wonderfully creative sandwiches on delicious fresh breads. Soups are homemade and tasty. Breakfasts are great, also.

Bread is very good, their breakfast selection is great. The breakfast we ordered hit the spot after our morning mountain bike ride. Prices very reasonable.

I eat here regularly and I love most everything I've had (especially the flapjack specials like the red velvet and pumpkin). From the breakfast, the sandwiches, soups and salads, all is good. The bread is yummy. And have always had good service, especially from the young man behind the counter.

We didn't want breakfast......just wanted to buy a few loaves of their sourdough bread. We selected the Country White & the Honey Wheat, but were a bit concerned when we carried the bread to the car as it was SO heavy! Happy to report, however, that both breads were very good!

I was back in Placid this month and visited Sourdough again. Very happy again but one thing I need to correct. Realizing how important the coffee is when choosing a breakfast or lunch spot I'd like to share what I found out, and that is that Sourdough's coffee comes from a roaster in Vermont, and is not Seattle's Best.

My husband and I were looking for a good sandwich place in Lake Placid as we spend several weeks here every year. We ordered two Mediterranean sandwiches to take on our picnic lunch, to Buttermilk Falls on September 4, 2013--one with cheese, one without cheese. I watched the order taker write this detail down. When we unwrapped the sandwiches at... More

You may whiz by this nondescript restaurant looking for something fancier, but this is definitely our choice by far for breakfast. A great menu selection with ethnic or international choices too. My challah french toast was perfect. Ample portions. We'll definitely return.

A great breakfast here! My husband & I stopped here for breakfast, what a gem! The breads are to die for & such variety making it hard to choose! I had a breakfast sandwich so delish & my hubby had the French toast...best ever. If you are in the area....stop in you won't be disappointed.

Great bread, good breakfasts & sandwiches. Seattle's Best coffee (owned by Starbucks) is much better than Starbucks proper (IMHO)

Ive eaten lunch here several times and keep introducing it to others. We always enjoy the delicious flavor combinations, and appreciate the real, non-plastic environment! Very comfortable.
