Sandwiches were awful. We were hungry and intrigued by their menu. Their homemade bread was dry, they forgot the provolone, the roasted peppers were minuscule, not enough spread. Really disappointing and the lady taking the order was a bit ornery. We ordered 5 sandwiches to go and no one liked them.

Very casual place recommended by hotel across the way. Really nice choice of sourdough breads - loved the rosemary one. Nice choices and combos. Not a quick place though - we were there for 45 min and we were kind of in a rush. Not a fancy looking place.

We had brutal service only to be matched by over paying for small sandwiches. Not filling, not tasty. Avoid at all costs.

I had a wonderful chicken salad sandwich, and my companion had a generous bowl of chicken noodle soup. It is a charming place for some healthy options. I would like to try breakfast next time.

We ate breakfast here on our last morning in Lake Placid on the recommendation of a New York Times "36 Hours in Lake Placid" article and had a really great breakfast. The bread is delicious and everything was cooked to order (loved the local eggs). We even bought some bread to bring back home with us. The restaurant and the... More

The sandwiches were really good. We arrived at 2:30pm and were limited to the types of bread and cheese. It appears this place has a lot of regular happy customers that come for the good food. We ended up still getting 2 delicious sandwiches.

I ordered a salad with grilled chicken. The salad was served in a small bowl - one you would have for a side salad with dinner. There was barely any food in the bowl - some barely cut up greens, four or five tasteless grape tomatoes and not enough chicken to feed a child. This for $7.50. I remember years... More

We ate here for breakfast, and it was good, but the service is extremely slow. It wasn't even that busy, so not sure what the problem was. I think it'd be great for phone in orders like picking up sandwiches for an outing. My chair was really rickety and I cut my finger on it.
