When looking for lunch to eat on the go or in house in Lake Placid, look no further then Simply Gourmet. They certainly give you a choice: 46 sandwiches, plus salads, smoothies, and other great meals. But I recommend coming for the sandwiches. Each of the 46 sandwiches are unique and named for a different of one the 46 high... More

Stopped in to grab coffee and a breakfast sandwich. Service was great, selection of sandwiches was unique and enticing. Ordered the egg with sausage and Brie and maple mayo on a roll they bake on premises. Yeh, it was really good!

Great ingredients and fast service make Simply Gourmet and the adjacent Dak Shack restaurant an essential part of living or staying in Lake Placid. They also have "cabin dinners" for take out daily from a broad selection of home made dishes available in the display cases. The Dak Shack is open for all three meals and the quality of food...

Walked in to get some sandwiches for a long car ride home from LP. I was spoiled for choice. The options were countless, and all on fresh bread of your choosing. Made me wish I had stayed in LP longer so I could go back. Oh well; - - next time!

You just must come back then to try more sandwiches! We appreciate your review, and we hope to see you again to cross a few more off the 46er list the next time you are in Lake Placid. More

They were great when they were small. Now, very hectic, slow and even more pricey. The staff are far less friendly and it has lost its small town feel. The food is good but they ownership may have lost perspective.

Thanks for the feedback. We are very sorry you feel that way. The prices have remained the same since our move, so I'm not sure why you feel it's more pricey. We have certainly gotten busier, but that is something that we welcome. If you decide to stop in and see us again, we'd love another opportunity to serve you.... More

Hard to say what will happen first. Finish the 46 sandwiches or the actual 46 peaks. Both are awesome. Fun place. Deserts and coffee drinks too. Always good. See U soon

Heard about this place through a family member who raved about it. The building that this eatery is in, acutally has two restaurants. Simply Gourmet is located on the left side of the builing if you are looking at the building straight on from the road. They sell homemade pastries and have an array of baked items with many deli...

So glad we stopped in here before setting off hiking. The sandwiches were delicious, and they had great gluten free bread.

Thanks for the review! We get lots of compliments on our gluten free bread, and although we don't make that in house, we do think it's tasty!
