The breakfast and service was very good but this was more of a tourist type breakfast place and not what you'd look for in a diner type establishment. I kind of like the diner type where you see the waitresses almost running, large platters of food coming out at warp speed and the cooks hustling. This is more of a... More

Nice breakfast selection with whole ingredients. My husband had french toast and a side of home made sausage. I had a vegetarian eggs Benedict with fresh spinach, avocado, and a basil hollandaise sauce. Coffee was a nice blend and my home fries were indeed made from scratch, not a frozen product. The maple syrup was real. Wait staff friendly and... More

Enjoyed a lunch here with friends (party of 4). Atmosphere: casual and clean. Not a large place, but roomy and comfortable. Service: Quick and friendly. Varied, unique menu choices and priced fairly. Portions were good and food was fresh. Wished we had more time to return for breakfast as the meals walking past us looked yummy!

If you have ever seen the movie The Breakfast Club, you can check out the memorabilia on the walls. But what you will enjoy the most is your meal and atmosphere. Get there early, because there is a line. We sat sat at the bar, and just totally enjoyed our experience and food. Bacon stuffed Belgian Waffles, and more. If... More

out of the three we tried. Great selection, delightful presentation, healthy, pleasant and quick service. Breakfasts are our favorite meals out, and this is among the best.

A little on the pricey side but if you're looking for a big breakfast this is the place. They also havw great European style breakfast food. My husband is originally from Denmark and was happy to find a non-american style breakfast option.

Just had breakfast here and what a disappointment. I've been to Lake Placid many times so this is one of the last few breakfast spots that we had not tried. I suppose I should have known better not to expect much from a place where the hostess doesn't say hello or even smile. That in itself shows the effort being... More

Love the champagne and bloody mary drinks here as well as the lunch menu. Bartender and waitresses very friendly and seem to really enjoy working there.
