Lunch sandwiches were quite tasty!

My brother and I had a late lunch here. Service was good and we enjoyed the sandwiches that were filling and tatsty.

I eat here for breakfast frequently and am never disappointed. I was in with some friends a coupe of weeks ago and got my personal favorite, the Two Moons over Saranac. It includes the owner's homemade English muffins. It's to die for. On quicker days, I call in a breakfast sandwich which is ALWAYS awesome. I hear they have awesome... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of Lake Placid. The menu was very interesting. I chose the polenta over a bed of spinach with ratatouille and eggs. My husband who prides himself on being an expert on corned beef hash, said that it was the best he has tasted. AN added bonus was the homemade bread and... More

Great lunch! Service is excellent. They had breakfast specials that are served all day. Great wine selection. Cozy and unique. Think they would have a great selection for a group.

Breakfast was very enjoyable & hearty. Their pastries & homemade bread/toast were a real treat. Appeared to be a real local favorite with a down home feel, helping yourself to coffee etc .... will definitely be back when traveling thru the Adirondacks.

I am a frequent of Blue Moon cafe for its relaxed atmosphere and good food. Their English muffins are fantastic! Came on a busier (but not unmanageable) morning with a young man "hosting" and one female server. As a fellow server, I understand the stresses of being the only one with numerous tables. However, you should never show your frustrations... More

Really unique and delicious lunch specials every day, great dinner options too. And nothing can compare to breakfast at the Blue Moon. It's much more than just a typical downtown cafe.

On a recent kayaking weekend with friends, the four of us ate breakfast here both mornings and were very pleased with everything. Definitely will do so again next year when we visit.

This place is great. Every single menu item is made from scratch. The baked goods are to die for and the lox is a personal favorite. I will continue to come to this place again and again. I'm a sucker for french fries, so I wish they had a deep fryer and the portion sizes could be slightly larger. All... More
