My girl friends and I spent a long weekend at Loon Lake in the Adirondack Mts. recently. We looked at our AAA Tour Book for restaurants, etc., and the Main St Ice Cream Parlor was one of the very few restaurants written up. This is an old fashioned soda fountain with soups, sandwiches, and salads, along with ice cream. The ice cream is made by Hershey's but the food is all homemade and is delicious. Since I'm dieting, I had a salad plate with tuna fish, cottage cheese, and a whole array of fresh and delicious fruits and vegetables. There was probably enough for two people. My friend had a turkey sandwich on marble rye bread with all the fixings and ate the whole thing. Portions are not skimpy. Of course we had to have some ice cream, although I was a tiny bit disappointed that it was not homemade, given we were in a very small town. But the sundae we shared was very good and did not disappoint.
The restaurant boasts all kinds of Coca-Cola paraphernalia...old fashioned coke machines and signs that brought back lots of memories, especially if you are over 60 years old. There is also a gift shop upstairs which is quite extensive. I found that there were not too many shops in the whole town so if you are looking for nice gifts and souvenirs, this is a good place to shop. I bought my 5 year old grandson "moose" socks. They also sell homemade candy and pastries but being that it was summer and hot, we couldn't take a chance in bringing any of it back with us.
If you are near Loon Lake or Lake George, don't miss this little gem...good food, good prices, and a very homey atmosphere.
