Great place for breakfast

We have driven past this place dozens of times when in the area and looking for a spot for dinner, and it always seemed to be closed. Yesterday we stopped for breakfast and discovered that it is only open for breakfast and lunch. We had a fine meal. Service was excellent and everyone very... read more

My wife's dry scrambled eggs were over done to a point they were a little crispy on the edges. I am not a fan of breakfast potatoes cooked in the French fryer.

Food was mediocre, service was ok, prices a little high. We usually pick a spot and keep going back, decided to look elsewhere and found a much better place down the road

Service was fantastic, very friendly, very professional. Breakfast food was great. We had waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage. My daughter had Oreo cookie waffles (waitress's recommendation). She was very pleased with them.

We ate breakfast here before heading out for a canoe and camping trip with oatmeal on the menu for 5 mornings. This place did not disappoint 4 hungry men. The waitresses were very cheerful and helpful. We had another satisfying breakfast on our way back-- after eating the oatmeal in cloudy or rainy mornings.

upon arrival to McKenzies, we were NOT greated by a hostess but had to excuse ourselves to ask for a table. As it was winter carnival, we had a large group of people that they could not accommodate… they told us "we will never get our dining room back together" (which was not our problem, as they had just accommodated...

Once again a trip to Saranac Lake for the winter carnival, breakfast was good and hot when served. Soup and pie for lunch were also delicious. Close to the motels so can get busy at times like any small restaurant.

It was conveniently located across from our lodging (Gauthiers) with prompt, friendly service and good food.

Extremely disappointing breakfast. Tea bags are poor so be warned - very weak tea even by non-British standards. The "hot"water was cold. Poached eggs were not drained so muffins wre soggy. "Ham " was the thinnest piece of reconstituted meat possible

Stayed nearby and ate breakfast here everyday for a week and was pleased every day. Nothing fancy but consistently delicious.
