While doing a seven day 460 mile bicycling loop in the Adirondack Mts we went here for breakfast. Great choice of coffees and pancakes were the expected quality. Bacon not quite crisp enough. Food preparation was a tiny bit slow. I'd go again so give it a try

Don't get the good reviews of this place - maybe because it's one of the only places in town. Service was scattered. Food was mediocre. Portions small. Menu overpriced for the location.

This place is fabulous! Excellent cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner! They also gave a fully stocked bar with a great wine selection. They also serve in house roasted coffee and homemade breads and pastries. Owners are wonderful people!

We ate here on our first night in the area, based on a recommendation from our innkeeper, and it was delicious and one of the best meals we had on our trip. Atmosphere is like a coffee house, which makes it more casual.

We came here for breakfast 2 mornings while in Saranac Lake. I loved the homey atmosphere - they'll fit you in wherever they can, help yourself to a variety of coffee choices in a mismatched mug. The thick slices of homemade bread/toast made the whole meal! Just fantastic. The bacon was so flavorful and very hearty strips. I gave the... More

We enjoyed breakfast here with friends. Wonderful hash with eggs. Coffee is serve yourself, which I like. I think it makes the place feel like home. Staff is attentive and food comes on a big plate covered by a heaping portion. Everything was great - no complaints at all.

Just had lunch/brunch today here...what a disappointment. Has all the trappings of a nice Adirondack village cafe. Nope...waited LONG time for poached eggs, burger, turkey sandwich and chicken Caesar salad. I am OUTRAGED by my sons salad. It was as small as a side salad, costing $7.50 PLUS $4 more for the chicken. But he was left hungry for a... More

Stopped in for lunch before going on the Railway express ride. Lunch was very poor. I had eggs with corn beef and my wife had a BLT. The toasted bread was like a rock, The bacon was burnt to a crisp and the tomato was the End core. Very disappointing and at a cost of about $25!!

Don't let the setting fool you, it looks like a cafe, the food and service here is excellent. Mediterranean chicken and gumbo was perfectly cooked and delicious.
