A very quaint diner clearly. Great food and coffee (as the name suggests) Dont miss it. Plus check out the beautiful Art Deco Sunburst backsplash behind the grill.

We didn't eat breakfast here, but went for coffee. Unfortunately, the espresso was too weak to enjoy, not sure if there's a better option in town, but I'd keep looking rather than settling for this too quickly.

This is a nice place to get a cup of coffee and tea. Morning time is special and this is a place to check out.

In truth, there is very little good to say about the place. The food was mediocre and the service awful. To be fair, they had a sign out front preemptively apologizing for the service as most of their wait staff went back to college...and that...More

cute place.. but that is about it, probably the worst home fries I've ever had.. They need to watch Dinners Drives- ins and dives so they can understand that there has been a food revolution in this country... servers where disinterested ... but when it...More

The staff was terrific, but the rules (and the owner) are not. Eggs were hard, salsa was cold. Forced to wait for a table when three larger ones were wide open - and remained that way throughout our 50-minute visit. Granola was soft, not crunchy....More

Worth the wait and worth eating in a crowded rail car. The food was so good and the coffee was even better. We were so glad that we made the trip from Lake George to Bolton for just the breakfast alone. Great for groups smaller...More

Great atmosphere, great food. Food was local, not greasy at all and most importantly the coffee was fantastic! Recommend for breakfast with local flavor.

We are a 1946 Service Diner originally from Wooster, MA. This dinner was moved to Bolton Landing in 1989 to replace the old 1904 Bill Gates Dinner which was placed in the Adirondack Museum. We take pride in keeping our dinner in its early native state, and love to see people excited about our little treasure. It is a quaint, buzzing atmosphere in the summer and houses many of the locals in the winter. November thru Mid May hours are: Friday thru Monday 7am-2pm, closed Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Mid May thru the summer we are open Every Day 7am-2pm.
