With my camera club group we would go to Tamarack after finishing an early morning shoot. Food is very good, tasty, not greasy and they have the most delicious sauce to put on your eggs that they make and sell ( I never got to buy a bottle so I have to go back). Super friendly people, always full of... More

The café is small and popular with locals and rightfully so. The food is great and friendly wait staff. They always make you feel like a local. Reasonably priced also.

It's a tradition for my husband and I to stop by the Tamarack every time we are in Inlet. It's our favorite cafe. The staff is great and the food is amazing. Try the Country Scramble! It's delicious and enough for two people.

Since we ate here before, we decided to wait at the counter until an outside table became available. Our selections were hamburgers and fries and we were not disappointed. After waiting a little, our burgers came and were delicious. They tasted very good with lettuce and tomato. plus the fries were not bad either. A relaxing time was had on... More

Stop here generally for lunch when in Inlet due to fact it is mainly the only lunch place on the strip. Generally enjoy their burgers. Nothing special but tasty enough to return. Good coffee. Lots of waitresses bustling around. Service is good - not real friendly due to busyness of place.

We got there at 11:45 am and were told we couldn't get breakfast, anymore which was fine of course, but for the next 30 minutes we watched breakfast plates come out. I guess they were back ordered. It was normal diner-quality food. I had a BLT with cheese and pickles, which I'd found intriguing on the menu and did indeed... More

Good food, standard breakfast fare. Lots of locals seem to like it....but also the only place open early. Real maple syrup. Cute waitresses. Not many tables so get there early.

Every year during our week long Adirondack camping trip we go to this restaurant for breakfast at least twice during the week. The service is great and the food is very good. I did however ask for a non dairy creamer and they didn't have any. Not a big deal. I drank it black.
