we enjoyed lamb in phyllo with feta dressing..it was amazing. satay was ok, but not as flavourful. we had pie for dessert, the berries were delicious but pie was not flaky.

Great place for breakfast/brunch. Don't forget to order their Bloody Mary. Believe they have locally brewed beer too but couldn't get to try.

We were really impressed with the creative specials we had for dinner here. They were clearly locally sourced, made on the premises. Great meal for reasonable cost.

Grabbed breakfast here the weekend of the local rugby tournament, so things were fairly busy. The "serve yourself" coffee bar was cool, especially with the eclectic variety of mugs to choose from. I had the San Antonio, sweet version, which was average to slightly above average. The biggest detractor was poor service. They packed so many tables into the back... More

Wonderful place for breakfast -- great homemade hash and their homemade breads are fresh and delicious. They also have a nice variety of muffins, scones, etc. that will have you drooling on the display case :) Lunch brings a nice variety (and some interesting combinations) for sandwiches and usually a good homemade soup, too. Over the years, we have stopped... More

You feel like part of the family at the Blue Moon Cafe. Delicious food is made to order, so expect to take time to savor a nice glass of wine or cup of coffee while you wait. Innovative menu that uses local, fresh ingredients. I live in the area and it is definitely my "go-to" place. Make sure to visit... More

The last stop on our Saranac Lake adventure before heading out a town. We got there for lunch. The place was half full so service was timely. The place has a laid-back somewhat arty feel to it but none too lavish. The food was fine overall but a little pricey for what we had. Right in the center of town... More

Had lunch. Average quality food. Very slow. Took over 40 minutes from placing order (eggs and a Ruben) to get the food. Sat outside because it was very warm inside.
