Drove in from Tupper Lake to eat here and it was worth it. I'm not sure of the dish's name - "Rondack" I think but wow! Check this place out for sure when you're in the area. I'm looking forward to someday going back.

Thank you for the kind words. The Rondack Breakfast would be our House chili, café taters topped with eggs, bacon and cheddar cheese. The Rondack hunting camp scramble would be duck hearts, house smoked bacon ends and caramelized onions topped with NYS Vulto Walden Cheese. Glad you enjoyed! Ken & Tricia More

We saw the good reviews but were unprepared to find such high quality of ingredients that were so carefully prepared in this nondescript street side cafe. We visited for dinner and enjoyed a sublime cheese plate, crabcakes with a delicious sauce, and skirt steak that was very flavorful and tender. The best bread pudding imaginable. Friendly and unpretentious atmosphere -... More

I have been here a few times. The most recent was my favorite. I tried the omelette with brussel sprouts. I they were perfectly cooked and a very nice flavor blend. I got whole wheat toast and home fries with it. The potatoes were nicely seasoned and nicely grilled. The bread must be home made. Very good overall. I'll definitely... More

Wonderful breakfast / brunch! Not your everyday chain breakfast. We had the omelet and the eggs benedict and they were both delicious.

Food is below average. Goulash special definitely needed some help. Prices are high. The fact that I even bring up prices means quality doesn't meet price point. They were thoroughly understaffed. If long wait time, high prices, and below average food is common here, I don't know if we will be back.

We came here for lunch after reading good reviews. We were starving and had been on our feet all day. We didn't even stay to get drinks. The place was filthy. The tables were gross and had clearly not been wiped clean. The floor was enough to make me want to vomit. It looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in... More

We're a local couple who went in an enjoyed 3 different plates from the Wednesday tapas menu. I expected small plates but each was heaping and delicious. The waitress was friendly and it was a relaxing dinner. Love the blue moon cafe!

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Lake Placid. A cute place with great service and good quality food. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful when we asked them for information.

Good food (breakfast is the best!), never rushed, friendly. Pour your own (good!) coffee, plant yourself at a corner table, and watch the world go by.

As for the review with the guy on the camel. We're talking about food and service. Unfortunately I can't say anything bad about this place. Amelia island gumbo a must. And the avocado dip to start. Can't go wrong. Keep up the good work guys. I'm just a local lady about her town and her people in the service industry,... More
