I was back in Placid this month and visited Sourdough again. Very happy again but one thing I need to correct. Realizing how important the coffee is when choosing a breakfast or lunch spot I'd like to share what I found out, and that is...More

My husband and I were looking for a good sandwich place in Lake Placid as we spend several weeks here every year. We ordered two Mediterranean sandwiches to take on our picnic lunch, to Buttermilk Falls on September 4, 2013--one with cheese, one without cheese....More

You may whiz by this nondescript restaurant looking for something fancier, but this is definitely our choice by far for breakfast. A great menu selection with ethnic or international choices too. My challah french toast was perfect. Ample portions. We'll definitely return.

Great bread, good breakfasts & sandwiches. Seattle's Best coffee (owned by Starbucks) is much better than Starbucks proper (IMHO)

Ive eaten lunch here several times and keep introducing it to others. We always enjoy the delicious flavor combinations, and appreciate the real, non-plastic environment! Very comfortable.

We ate here 3 mornings out of 4 while in LP. Can't beat the Paysanne. I'm gluten free so I couldn't try the bread but my husband said it was awesome.

We've eaten here before, and prefer Simply Gourmet right down the street. The food isn't bad, but the owner is not friendly and was rude on more than one occasion.

We enjoy this place as it is right across the street from our favorite hotel (Wildwood). The homemade bread is very tasty, they also make muffins and cookies. The sandwiches are very good also. We went about 4-5 times throughout the week. Nearly every time...More
