A great place to go for a mid-day lunch or earlier. Just a farm atmosphere but so much to offer!! The Blueberry Muffins are a killer! Take home a bunch for later. A good place to go also if you're looking for someting made local for a gift.

This place is kind of a hybrid between a gift shop and a deli, mainly suited for breakfast or lunch. We happened to go there on a busy day and had to stand in line to order a sandwich. After ordering, it was a matter of waiting for the order to be filled so that it could be picked up. Sandwiches were accompanied by a bag of potato chips and a pickle. Everyone's sandwiches were really good and a little out of the ordinary. For example, the sandwich that I ordered had layers of ham, turkey, provolone and coleslaw. The eating area was crammed with country crafts that were for sale, making it a sort of feast for the senses. While we did not buy any crafts, we seemed unable to escape without buying some goodies for some relatives who were not with us. Think cannolis and cream puffs. In summary, it is a fun place with good food.

We've been coming here almost every week for the past 12 years. What a gem! Great breakfasts and lunches, excellent pastries and apple cider (in season), and cider donuts...especially when they're hot...oh, they just defy description! Don't forget to take home a pie! I love to bake, but Lakeside's pies are incredible with flaky crusts and fresh fruit. They're often still warm from the oven. Their flowers, local veggies (in season), and newly expanded garden/ gift area are worth the short drive from Albany or Saratoga.

Lakeside farm is a old time typical fresh homemade Restaurant, Deli, Vegetable market. It's an actual farm! When you enter you see the fresh grown veggies and then proceed to order your sandwich or soup!! The home baked pies and pastries are available for viewing. You order get your number and wait to be called for pickup. They are only open seasonally since the owner goes to Florida for the winter. They have a working Cider mill and lots of apple cider donuts for sale (their specialty). You won't find Sushi here!!! For dessert try one of the $1 soft serve cones! There is a small specialy market that is interesting and full of old time favorites. We eat here when we visit our parents and it's a popular place for lunch! Of course there are a few cons like....ony one cup of soda and no refills on Tea or any other soft drink. You can buy a bottle of soft drink. Upcharge if you split a sandwich on 2 plates but....... I guess you could always bring your own drink if it's a problem and eat off the same plate. We were there during the hottest time of the summer and a refill would have been nice. Perhaps they will get with the times and allow refills soon! All in all for a delightful trip back to the good old days you can't beat this place.!!!
