The Patio is a staple at Lakeside. My family mostly eats breakfast there, which is great. Homemade doughnuts are the real treat and shouldn't be missed. Lunch and dinners haven't changed much in 25 years. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired

The food is not bad. They only accept cash. Oftentimes you just do not get the "I am really glad you came" feel from them. I prefer to eat at some of the other local shops. They do have good ice cream.
