We love stopping here twice a year, but the whole menu is not what we're used to. My wife loves the apricot chicken salad and if that is finally removed from the menu, as has most of the items we loved, we'll need to change our usual weekend plans. I ordered the jerk marinated chicken and was surprised by what came to the table; not what I expected. Menu didn't mention breast and I thought it would be pulled (jerk chicken). Everything is served on sushi plates (long, rectangular) and leaves the chair area open to dropping from careless patrons. I only want a plate. No specials on the menu board; just cheeses of the day? Someone needs to understand you're not only catering to the Mirror Lake hotel clientele, but also the other hotel patrons who have frequented your business for years. Mix and match would be a good idea. Remember, you're a cafe. Our friends said it's time to change our 6 year plan, but I said to hold on. We'll see...

Thank you so much for being a loyal guest for the past 6 years! I am sorry that you were disappointed with our menu change during your last visit. We have received many positive comments on it and only removed items that were not selling. Over the past several years we have had numerous requests for us to change our menu, both from locals and repeat guests. We decided in the spring to remodel our kitchen so that we could expand our menu from just hot and cold sandwiches and offer a balance between light lunch items and items more substantial that would be considered dinner options. We upgraded our plates because we had numerous complaints about the plates we used to use as guests thought they were too small. We are not trying to only cater to The Mirror Lake Inn guests; we are simply trying to upgrade the quality of food and offer a variety of menu options. We will be changing our menu again in the late fall and I hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you. If you would like to contact me direct, I would love to talk to you about your concerns. I would like to continue to have you as a return, loyal customer. Please stop in again!
