Great local spot of breakfast or lunch

Stopped in for lunch right before closing after a long snowy hike. Waitress was sweet and prompt. We were asked to help ourselves at the self serve coffee station at the counter, was surprised but the delicious coffee made up for it (made a few trips back and forth). Food was very good; I ordered a... read more

The food was very nice, a lot of choice in the menu, choice of coffee and welcoming staff. The cafe is located in the center and there is a lot of places to see nearby.

This is a very hometown style cafe and restaurant. You cannot find a better place for breakfast or lunch in Saranac Lake. Their coffee and pastries are great and the servers are always friendly.

My spouse and I have been in Saranac Lake a few times over the last couple of months, and we love to eat out, so we've been trying out the local spots. The Blue Moon Cafe is the best place that we've eaten in town. The first time, I had a salmon dish and my spouse had some sort of... More

This little place is headed in a great direction. I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner and "To-Go" No problems anywhere. the food is fresh, tasty, a bit innovative for location and even vegetarian friendly . It is my go-to place now when I visit Saranac Lake, which is often as I used to live here.

Had eaten here last spring and enjoyed it. Meeting with some locals they all said this was the place to go for lunch. Ordered the Reuben which was excellent. Two of our party order the B.O.B.; named for a favorite customer. Adult son enjoyed the Saraburger (his wife's name is Sara), although the thought the burger was too well done... More

We stopped here on our way to Lake Placid for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The place was packed so we just ordered coffee and a pastry and sat out front to eat. I found it strange that we were sold the "cup" for the coffee and when I went to pump the coffee from the self-serve pot they were... More

Neat little spot in the center of town. The burgers were great, especially served on home-baked ciabatta bread
