Impressed with the choices and quality!

The grilled vegetable sandwich had potential to go either way - but Simply Gourmet's version is excellent. The vegetables were grilled to full flavor, but not at all over-cooked. it was a perfect balance of cheese, veg, condiments and bread. My companion's sandwich was a meet and cheese affair... read more

Limited selection and barely any merchandise. Not sure what the point is. better off down the street at Hannaford's.

Best sandwich shop around! Always stop by when we are in the area. Spent all of last weekend in Lake Placid and ate there twice. My husband even commented they were his two favorite meals of the weekend! Can't go wrong with any of their selections, from soup, to salads, to sandwiches. As others have noted, there is a downtown... More

Living within "drivings" distance from Lake Placid is amazing. From Beer, to Wine, this Town is a must for any foodie. My Girlfriend and I have stopped here every single time we drive in. Why you ask? Simple: Quality Food at reasonable prices. We have enjoyed 7 of the "Peaks" and continue to go back for the Baked Cookies. Last... More

I hadn't been here for a while and they've moved into a nice new location. The owners are the same here as Big Mountain Deli on Main St. You can get all of the same delicious sandwiches (named after the 46 high peaks) here as well. They just don't have the crepes like the location on Main St has. Prices... More

When staying in or passing through Lake Placid, we always look forward to stopping at Simply Gourmet. Their selection of Sandwiches, named after the Adirondack peaks, is the best around. Good value, tasty food... is doesn't get much better.

My teenage daughter turned me on to this place. . . and even then I was skeptical. I mean, after all, how much better can a sandwich be? Ah but it was love at first bite. Even my out of town guests remarked that they were the best sandwiches they had in a long, long while. The day old bread... More

I've been to this restaurant many times through the years with mixed results. Their bread made in-house is very good when you get it fresh but it is also way over priced and the sandwich I had today seemed like it was on day old bread. For some reason this place is very popular and I'm not sure why. My... More
