We visited and had both a piece of cheesecake and a caramel boat, essentially a variation on the classic chocolate eclair. Both items were very good and reasonably fresh tasting, though not remarkable.
The area where I reside is well known for world class bakeries and pastry shops, however I do live in a very cosmopolitan city so it's hard to compare to a small, tourist area such as Lake George and doing so would probably be unfair. Canada Street is pretty much populated with shops and restaurants that specialize in all manner of junk food, so having something that is baked fresh is a nice alternative and I'm happy we went here rather than our first choice of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.
I concur strongly with the other reviewer that stated the ordering/eating-in area is way too small and gets very congested. Better off taking out and eating by the lake or in your hotel room.

Been here twice and loved everything we've ordered. My only complaint is the standing area to order is small, so just a few people can make this seem crowded and hot. Reasonably priced and fresh. Thank you for satisfying my sweet tooth.

Yummy treats at a reasonable cost. Very friendly and helpful service. Cream puffs, cupcakes, and fudge brownie are especially good!
We just like it all!

They were very freindly and helpful when we went there late one night looking for a last minute birthday cake. We would go there again.

Traveling for vacation and we stopped here to order a birthday cake. There was some confusion and we had to return twice to get the cake because it wasn't ready. Ultimately, it was worth it because it was Delish!

Also picked up half moon cookies, mini cheesecakes, eclairs, and their own fudge fancy cookie. Everything was fresh and tasty.

The service on the days we visit was a little odd with someone working the counter who did not know the names of the product or how to run the register.
