Best sandwiches I had all weekend
Jan 2018 • Friends
This place looks like mainly a gourmet food shop, but they have a small menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches for takeaway that are worth the visit on their own.

Emergency Room Close Call.

A nice little shop located in heart of Lake Placid village lacking customer service and a touch of food poisoning.

My wife viewed the establishment on instagram and the posting of a hot chocolate drink that would make any non hot chocolate drinker want to have a cup. It also advertised a frozen hot chocolate that was picture perfect, claiming the best hot chocolate in town.

My wife tried to order two frozen hot chocolates, and was told it's just regular hot chocolate but she could add a few ice cubes to it. So instead she ordered two regular ones.

Returning to our seats my wife looked disappointed and explained to me about the photo on instagram and how the presentation was not what she was expecting.

My wife took one taste and brought the drink back to the brunette older woman serving the drinks.

Below is the actual conversation my wife had with the owner.

My wife "the hot chocolate has a sour milk taste, can you make me a different Hot chocolate?"

Owner "there is only one batch already made and I can't make a fresh batch. I will refund your money.

My wife " ok that's fine, but you should taste it so you see what I mean if you intend to serve future customers".

Owner " I will refund you the money". Then said, I don't know what picture you saw on instagram but maybe it was from the past owners, either way I refunded your money.

On our drive back home my wife got violently sick. We got home and she managed to involuntary remove empty her stomach contents in the toilet. Luckily after a few hours and some tums she felt better.

Please take caution and stay away from the hot chocolate.

Wonderful Chocolates and Other Baked Goodies!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
Stopped in because of the smell of this place...went in and ended up buying a bunch of different artisan chocolates along with several other cookies and baked goods. They had a homemade power granola bar, which we bought as well. Everything was delicious as we ate most of it on the shores of Mirror Lake.

Quaint Lake Placid shop!
Jun 2017
We were very pleased to find Temptations! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The baked items - including gluten free choices - were delicious. And when you visit, you must sample the many flavors of balsamic vinegars and olive oil. We ended up purchasing several flavors to take home.

Megan's hot chocolate

Best hot chocolate in town! I have lived in the area for almost a year and finally visited this store when I had family in town. My family member got a lemon bar and he loved it!

Cute cheese shop
Mar 2017 • Couples
Cute cheese shop. As you can imagine it's pretty expensive but it does have a nice selection of cheeses and sweet treats. They do have an olive oil and vinegar sample area where you can purchase after you find something you like.

A little jewel in the village of Lake Placid
Dec 2016 • Friends
It may be small but what a treasure this wonderful store is. It is filled with incredible cheeses, fresh baguettes daily, gourmet cookies, bagels, breakfast treats, speciality vinegars & oils, sandwiches made to order and so much more. Laura the owner is charming and so is her friendly & caring staff. Great place to shop for edible Christmas gifts. A must visit!
