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!

My 'Sisters by Choice' (3 of them Sal,Miki, and Shermie) visited Temptations Store at Lake Placid yesterday. What friendly service we received. Cheese slice samples of our choice and yes we bought (each of us) some of the Comte & Lamb Chopper cheeses and their cute little 'orphan cheeses'. Oh yes, and a baguette that was still warm. Yummy!!!

I love this little shop! Sometimes I wish it was bigger.. Or that you could dine in, this is my favorite place for lunch! If you like cheese.... REAL cheese, and baguettes, or bagels, or oil, or a coffee.. Or what ever your fancy temptation may be... You must go here! By far the best baguette bread around! And the... More
