“Coffee shop offering good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Bank Cafe is a cute little place, though there is more seating inside then I expected. There is also outdoor seating. The restaurant is located in the heart of Lake George Village. You walk in, step up to the counter to order. The menu is posted above on blackboards. I was there for breakfast. I had an egg and bacon sandwich on a ciabatta. It was tasty, but it would have been much better with two eggs. The bread was delicious but overwhelmed the filling. There was a nice selection of teas and the hot water for the tea was extremely hot.

The prices were reasonable and the staff was friendly. Good choice for a fast breakfast. I would go back!

“GREAT Coffee and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

This place was NEVER NOT packed with people inside or out. Great little coffee shop and they use the old vault from the bank as a sort of store...Menu is what you would expect and all food is made to order.

“Cute little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Fresh made sandwiches. Place your order at the counter and it will be brought to your table when ready. The paninis were good, but the best was the pizza grilled cheese. The décor is cottage quaint. This place used to be a bank, the vault door is still in place and there are some items for sale in there. Fun to see.
