Our favorite breakfast spot!

DJ's is a favorite of the Saranac Lake locals, which speaks volumes about the food and prices. The food is excellent with ample portions, cooked up by the owner, and always yummy! For example, the blueberry pancake (notice it's singular!) is so large that you won't see the plate underneath! It's... read more

We ate at this restaurant a few times and the food was good. But the last time we went there the eggs seemed a little cool and my husband had chipped beef which was overly salted and bland. We didn't complain, but when we were talking to each other wondering what the 50cent charge on the bill was the waitress... More

DJs atmosphere is right out of the no frills 1960's but the breakfasts are about as good as it gets. The pancakes are some of the best ever, anywhere. There is usually some kind of special French toast and omelets. Sausage gravy is particularly good. I never skip DJs when in the area.

Stopped in on our way home from Lake Placid. Perfect Sunday breakfast. French toast with cream cheese and strawberries were yummy. Came with perfect diner homefries. Friend had eggs and biscuits with sausage gravy. Great little diner.

had an unusual "spicy toast and eggs". Never had it before, enjoyed it. Place hasn't changed in 45 years. Just as I remembered it.

We ate breakfast here after hearing about it from several others in the area,. It is inexpensive an breakfasts are massive! Typical small hometown local family owned restaurant. Small, not extremely glistening, but clean enough to be comfortable. Pleasant staff. Looking forward to eating there again in a few weeks!

Unassuming, but the people lining up outside to wait for a table or spot at the counter should tell you all you need to know. The food is good old fashioned diner food, always cooked to perfection. The pancakes are to die for. prices cant be beat and if you leave hungry it's your own sweet fault.
