Great coffee!

Having spent a few days in the Adirondacks, this was the first decent coffee. The locally baked berry muffin was bursting with fruit and the service delightful. Recommended!

If you are anywhere near Saranac Lake - coming, going, or staying - it is always worth going to Blue Moon for a great breakfast or lunch. I go there pretty much every day I am visiting near SL. The portions are large and the egos are small...just relax and enjoy. If you are a high-maintenance, finicky city sort, you... More

I said to a bystander that I would fire her for her attitude.....opps shes the owner. Mediocre food and miserable service except for Jennifer who... More

We had a yummy breakfast here last weekend while visiting Saranac Lake from Ottawa, Canada. Get a table in the front window or sit at the little bistro table on the street for great small town people/dog watching. Fun to have breakfast with the local regulars at this cute, artsy diner. The food is excellent.

The Blue Moon is quite popular with the locals who seem to frequent this cafe along Main Street in Saranac Lake. I recently took a group of college students here for a luncheon and again our service was great, and the food value was excellent. I've taken several college student groups to the Blue Moon for dinner after local races,... More

This was recommended to us by some locals. It was a great tip. Ample portions of really good food (I had two breakfasts there) and fair prices. Very comfortable setting (not loud like most places these days!) and friendly staff. SO nice not having to rely on chain outfits for food.

We love breakfast and/or brunch what ever you prefer to call it. They make an incredible crab cake benedict and great sandwiches.

I always bring visiting family here for breakfast, and come for coffee meetings through work. A cozy atmosphere with good food.

This place has the potential to be an above average cafe - just needs a little updating. Decent staff and atmosphere - could be a little more welcoming and upbeat. Food is good, but the menu could be a little more inventive. Self serve coffee station is great - picking out your mug can be quite the adventure seeing all... More
