The only downside to the place is how busy it is, feels almost chaotic but the food is great. I was there for a breakfast meeting and was not disappointed. Good prices and good coffee. The staff was also great, be prepared to get your own coffee though, not a bad way of doing it if you drink a lot... More

We checked out this place in Saranac Place and we were sure glad we did. The proprietor, a long time resident from NYC, came by to tell us about getting a new supplier for the raw oysters and that they came from a secret inlet in Maine. They were delicious! What a start! The lobster was prepared to perfection and... More

Busy bustling place with great food. Almost all ingredients made on premises. Hash browns are different but good. Coffee is self serve so you never runout. Two Moons over Saranac was delicious. The daily specials were creative.

Very busy place. Self serve coffee. Seating for four difficult during all meal times. Food cooked as ordered. Service slow due to crowds attending local events finding out this is one of the best places to go for food.

With so many fast food and chain restaurants grabbing center stage in the "eating out" experience it's refreshing to find one that is superior to any of them, that serves something different than even their standard menu items and does it without a lot of fan fare but with a taste experience unparalleled in the industry. That describes our experience... More

Breakfast was only OK. I bought a lemon tart which was so tough I lost a cap when I bit into it. Ive had pancakes here before and found them mediocre at best. Fine bacon--which they actually cook crisp to order--and hash browns, though. Little atmosphere, pretty good coffee. I once had very good desserts here. Locals love this place,... More

We came here for breakfast. Maybe it's what we ordered, but the food felt pretty standard, nothing special. Food was filling but a little oily, not the best start to the day. Staff seemed a little unorganized, but were doing pretty well considering the large breakfast crowd.

Loved the self serve coffee bar and the great blends! The bagel and lox rocked and the egg sandwich with bacon was cooked exactly as ordered which doesn't happen very often! These folks nailed it and I will go back for sure!
