“Could be better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

For SL it's good. But the coffee was lukewarm. Why do they not check the temp? And the soup, Turkey vegetable with black bean would have been superb if it was hotter.! WARM UP YOUR SOUP AND YOUR COFFEE! IT IS COLD OUTSIDE IN THE ADKS IN THE WINTER! I'll give you a 5 next time of you warm up the coffee and the soup!

“Great menu choices - something different in Saranac Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived, but was pleasantly surprised by the menu! Lots of interesting options (especially in the "bowls" section) and food generally seemed on the healthier side. We were also surprised to see they had a fairly decent beer selection (although bottles only). If I lived in the area I'd be going back for sure!

Great food, nice crowd. I love Sunday breakfast here. Good coffee and the local newspapers, too. Fresh local baked goodies you won't find anywhere else, enjoy !

“Good food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This was "the place" to have breakfast in town on a Sunday morning. Of course, it was one of two breakfast spots open in town! We waited to be served for at least 10 minutes, and then another 15 minutes before our breakfast was served. Very short-staffed for the number of people in the restaurant. However, the quality of the food and there was a good amount of it. The coffee bar was self-serve which, given the level of service, was an excellent idea.

If we were in a hurry, we'd probably forego this restaurant. But overall, we were satisfied.

“Delightful dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I went to meet my parents here with my husband recently, because my dad says it's the best Reuben outside of NYC. I did not try it, but the food overall was fantastic. Fresh, homemade bread and pastries, buffalo dip appetizer with crumbled bleu cheese, and my chicken/shrimp chimichurri were all great! Try the lemon blackberry cake warmed up. SO good.
