As every December when my family meets in Lake Placid, we stopped in my teenage son’s favorite place. I ordered eggs & toast with the amazing bread. My son ordered similar. Always great and very cozy. Favorites are: French toast, home made bagels and best...More

We shared sourdough pancakes and an omelette. The food was good, the overall appearance of the restaurant was rustic.

Eileen's corn and clam chowder is outstanding!! Everything was fresh and tasty. We will be back! Saranac Sourdough on Lake Placid is easy to get to with plenty of parking! People should eat there first before heading to downtown Lake Placid.
