Cool little place in town with good food. I went for breakfast a few times and the was good. I love that it's not a huge place just small and the same local were there every time I went in. Great place.

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.

We left the Saranac Lake Hotel and I vowed not to end up in another "kit food' restaurant. So as we were driving out of town we noticed this place and I said to my friend "hey how bad can it b at least it will be a REAL place w real people". Turned out to be great food. Simple... More

Great unassuming little diner. Like how the kitchen is open to the eating area. Can't beat the price and value for your dollar here!

This place is a basic home cooking diner and if you expect anything else go somewhere else for breakfast or lunch. I recently went back to DJs for the first time in 10 years, I used to go there with my dad as a kid and we both used to love getting their plain cheese omelette. That has always stuck... More

This place cooks awesome breakfast. They don't take cares, but a quick trip to the ATM is worth it. They always meet expectations. Specials are interesting, but nothing too fancy. It is just solid food. I really enjoy their french toast. Eggs are consistently well prepared no matter how I have ordered them. The staff is aloof yet courteous and... More

This is a "homey" as you can get. Well worth a stop. The pancakes are fantastic. Other selections we had were good. Prices are good, too.

The pancake here is THE pancake that all other pancakes in the world are compared against. For over 15 years, all I ever order here is the pancake, just because I enjoy it so much. And it really works after a good hike in the woods, of just before one!
