This is the only place to go for a great lunch, or dinner. Very friendly staff, and they always have wonderful homemade food! Enjoy.

We visit Lakeview Deli a lot! The sandwich specials change daily, and the food and staff are top notch. All at fair prices. Side salads come with specials.

After a rousing ride on the Adirondack Railexplorers pedal-yourself railcars we were ready for lunch. Actually a deli rather than a 7-11 that calls itself a deli. Good sandwiches.

Located on the main highway facing the lake in Saranac. Sandwiches made to order. Chips, cookies, snacks, drinks all available as well. A few table allow dining there, or take it across the street to one of the parks along the lake.

This is a deli where you may find the line daunting but the counter guys are quick and the sandwich I had, an Italian, was excellent. They have a very efficient operation. The price is right and I was on my way in no time at all.

My 3 friends and I purchased sandwiches from many choices of fillings, bread and beverages. Crossed the street to eat outside on the picnic tables provided on the Lake, A perfect day in the Adirondacks.
