Soooo good.

May be a tad pricey but the food is fresh and very good. They have produce you can buy along with some tasty baked goods.

Lakeside Farms serves up a great breakfast, quickly and efficiently. There is no wait service but the food is very good and there is virtually no wait time. Make sure you take home a pie after breakfast.

The best time to visit is in the fall. The country store and the hot cider donuts and amble apple selection is best then. The menu includes breakfast and lunch items such as a variety of sandwich's. The country store offers unique items and bakery goods. Nice place to visit with the family.

My husband is originally from Upstate New York and we visited his parents there this weekend. His mom always raves about Lakeside Farms (and their apple cider and baked goods) and we got a chance to go here as a family for breakfast this past Sunday. We figured it would be crowded being a Sunday morning around 11am and it... More

Everyone likes lakeside farms. Great little restaurants, cute country store with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. If you can't find a place to park in front of the store there is always the parking lot along the side of the store.

I ate lunch today, as I do frequently, at Lakeside Farms. I ordered the BLT on whole wheat with cheddar cheese, and a cup of Potato and Bacon soup, and a seltzer drink from the self-help soda machine. You wander in past the fresh fruits and vegetables and order by the deli and baked goods. Despite a little line due... More

I can't help but smile whenever I enter Lakeside Farms. It's a combination of a farm market of fresh fruits and vegetables with a great breakfast and lunch spot. The food is prepared fresh and always delicious. They have an outstanding bakery with the best pies around. I highly recommend apple fritters for a breakfast treat and "The Lakesider" sandwich...
