“Breakfast or lunch this is the spot.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The Creperie has something for everyone. They have a huge menu that covers an entire wall in the place and to top it off you have several choices of breads for each selection. I found the sweet crepes to be spot on and although I haven't tried them, based on all the other things I have tried here, the savory crepes are probably just as good. If you are looking for lighter fare I found the granola bowl to be satisfying.

The sandwiches are fantastic, with the bulk of them named after the 46 high peaks, and the rest named after other natural features in the area such as ponds, lakes, etc. I am very pick about my tuna fish sandwiches and usually don't try them out to eat but I took a gamble after one of the helpful young ladies working there recommended it. It was fantastic! It wasn't weighed down with mayo and the chunky texture and light citrus flavor was refreshingly different.

About the only negatives here are that at times the lines can be long and seating is scarce. During peak times the line goes right out the door and moves pretty slowly. Also with a seat-yourself style in an adjoining room, the staff has trouble keeping up with wiping down the tables and keeping the room orderly. This definitely isn't a reason to avoid the place just be prepared for it by having a member of your party stake out a table and some chairs or you'll find yourselves standing outside and eating (not necessarily a bad thing in the 'Dacks).

We make it a point to stop here for breakfast, brunch, or lunch every time we are in the area and recommend you do to! If you can't find something you like here, you just might be hopeless.

“Fantastic lunch spot!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was very impressed with how delicious their sandwiches were! With so many choices (46 sandwiches named after NY's high peaks) along with salads and crepes and other things I didn't expect such high quality taste but was pleasntly surprised! There's definitely a sandwich for everyone on that list! Highly recommend going there for lunch. I enjoyed the Lower Wolfjaw (veggies and goat cheese) while my husband went all out with the Sawteeth (peanut butter, granola, apple butter, bananas, and raisins) which I may have had a few bites of.... so delicious!!

“broad choices”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Unless you do not like crepes, this establishment has an infinite number of choices of crepes. Savory, sweet, vegetarian. They are named after the Adirondack 46 high peaks (46 mountains over 4000 ft). So, theoretically, you could climb a peak and then eat the crepe named after it. The combinations are lovely, ranging from nutella and banana, to a caprese crepe (tomato, mozarella, basil) and one with whole brats on it. They serve other items too, including home made baked goods and creative smoothies and lemonades. The atmosphere inside is nice (bus your own table) and there are 2 tables outside if the weather is nice. I liked it a lot.
