In a very touristy town I did not expect to be impressed with an average looking place on main street but I was. The service was excellent and the food was every better. The blueberry pancakes were as good as I have had anywhere. Even better than my own. The prices are reasonable and as you know this is something... More

We were looking for a quick lunch before going to Adirondack Extreme. I wanted something fairly healthy. This place was great. My children shared a pulled pork sandwich, and I had a chicken wrap sandwich with avocado, roasted red peppers, and garlic mayo, and they grilled it. It was selfish!

Very nice breakfast, large plates, great menu selection. Loved it to the last bit! Super professional service. Once we sat, all was smooth. Just the wait, the line outside, partly due slow turning over tables. Will be back!

Why is it so difficult to find a good coffee shop in Bolton Landing? Rhetorical, but nonetheless true. This place is a fine example of average. Nothing right or wrong with menu, just nothing exceptional or worth the visit. Try new place in town called Ria's Bakery just a few doors up the same road.

Met up with a fraternity brother and he recommended BB. Said it was best in Bolton and he wasn't telling a story. Delicious breakfast in a timely manner. Sat outside on the patio and enjoyed catching up. Will stop again when we return to the area.

Great place for breakfast and the best coffee in town. The staff is super friendly and efficient . From the outside it doesn't look like much but once inside it feels like an old train car. This was a really nice dining experience , affordable and great portions. The best place for breakfast

Can not say enough good things about Bolton Beans! This small breakfast/lunch restaurant is clean and the food is fresh. Coffee is great as well as the service. If you are visiting Lake George then Bolton Beans is a must!

Wow, this place was so good we went everyday. There may be a wait to get in but the staff keeps everyone moving and it is WORTH THE WAIT. Great coffee and good tea selection, the potato dishes are hash browns with goodies mixed in. I had a BLAT with a fried egg that was rock star. If you're there... More

Great little diner serving classic American breakfasts - love the grated home fries and sausage patties.

We are a 1946 Service Diner originally from Wooster, MA. This dinner was moved to Bolton Landing in 1989 to replace the old 1904 Bill Gates Dinner which was placed in the Adirondack Museum. We take pride in keeping our dinner in its early native state, and love to see people excited about our little treasure. It is a quaint, buzzing atmosphere in the summer and houses many of the locals in the winter. November thru Mid May hours are: Friday thru Monday 7am-2pm, closed Tuesday's and Wednesday's. Mid May thru the summer we are open Every Day 7am-3pm.
