This store has great cheese, try the cloth wrapped cheddar, wonderful olive oils and vinegars, fresh baguettes, and tasty desserts. They have the best coffee! This is our go to place when we come up to our house in Saranac Lake. Staff is patient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Wish they were on Long Island!!!

We live an hour and a half away and always stop in to see what's new. My fiancé loves the variety of different cheeses and I am a huge fan of the strawberry banana smoothies. There are no sweeteners added, only the fruit and apple juice. The staff is always crazy friendly and doesn't rush you to make up your... More

Whether it's the infused olive oils and vinegars, a baguette, the cheese, the treats or the GF macarons, this is a must stop whenever we go to Lake Placid. It's a tiny shop and often so busy you're elbow to elbow with other people. It is also a little pricey, but we like everything we get.

We tried many treats here from many of their pastries to their iced coffee and everything was excellent! The service as great too! I would've love to try more I just ran out of time and stomach room!

My husband and I stopped in Lake Placid in late April on route home from a vacation, so we just wanted to stretch our legs and grab a bite to eat. We went in Temptations and picked a sandwich from the cooler and a macaroon. The beef sandwich was delicious - so was the baguette it came on - and... More

I went back to see what was taking my husband so long when I thought he went inside to to get a cup of coffee. Well there was way more in here than coffee and pastries. They have lots of olive oils, balsamic vinegar and other gourmet food and seasonings, even gourmet dog biscuits. They have tastings of blended olive... More

We visited Lake Placid in February 2016 and stopped in for Megan's homemade hot chocolate on a cold Friday night. It is amazing! We came back the next day for more before we left the area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. All of the positive ratings for this business are right on!

We are so glad we happened to walk into this store. Picture hot ground turkey sausage with fresh eggs, on a home made croissant with a hot cup of local dark coffee. So prefect on a cool morning. This is a very quaint bakery, with super nice people / owners, the kind of shop you wish was on the corner... More

This quaint shop in the center of Lake Placid Village is loaded with delicious culinary treats, from macaroons to cider donuts. There are gifts and gift basket opportunities (olive oils, cheeses, etc.), and everything behind the counter is amazing. We had the Pumpkin Cookies, and they were so good we stopped on the way home and bought more!
