Eileen's corn and clam chowder is outstanding!! Everything was fresh and tasty. We will be back! Saranac Sourdough on Lake Placid is easy to get to with plenty of parking! People should eat there first before heading to downtown Lake Placid.

Delicious homemade breads and hearty, flexible meals. A great place for breakfast with the spouse or family. Cool, cozy decor and a genuine staff.

We frequent Lake Placid and our number one sandwich shop we must stop at is Saranac Sourdough. Everything is made fresh to order. The homemade bread is delicious. We have never had a bad meal here. This is definitely a stop people should make!
