Great for breakfast and lunch. Gluten free cakes and muffins and very good coffee. They also have a good choice of salads on the menu.

“So Simple, So good!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Sandwiches, paninis, and crepes.....sound interesting? What if all the ingredients were fresh, locally sourced and everything, even the crepe itself, was cooked to order? Oh yeah, now I've got you salivating. The only thing left to say is that the food tastes even better than it sounds! I had a crepe filled with brie, baked ham, and sliced apple. It was topped with a squeeze of spicy mustard sauce and came with fresh field greens. It was a very generous portion......but I ate it all! The other 5 people with me were equally thrilled with their meals. Go there, support these good people....we want this place to stay around for a good long time.

“Delicious Breakfast Crepes”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

The breakfast crepes were very good. The service friendly. The wait a bit much but that's because it is so popular with locals and travelers. Coffee was okay but our tastes tend toward more robust coffee. I would definetly go back.

“WHAT A VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stopped off in Lee on our way to Pittsfield and the Mohawk Trail. It was a very hot day and we were looking for a place to have a light lunch. Stumbled upon this place, name slightly off-putting, but were glad we went in. The food, we had panini, soup and cakes, and had more than we planned because it looked so tempting. It was quite cool and we enjoyed the artwork on the walls. The staff were very laid back but that did not spoil our experience. Worth a visit if you are passing through.

“Not so good”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I'm a bit surprised at the high reviews that I read about the Starving Artist Café. We were there in July 2013 and did not care for the food. The crepes themselves were fine, but the fillings left much to be desired. In addition, they totally messed up our orders. Nice people, but I would pass.
