A small venue with great view of mirror lake. Food was very good with solid service. Get there early as it is standing room only around dinner time. There is outdoor seating with propane heaters, but we enjoyed sitting inside.

We had drinks at the Cottage one evening at the bar and had lunch prior to leaving. Both were great experiences. Each evening there is a Happy Hour special. The evening we were there for drinks they had meatballs available to everyone and 1/2 price drinks. Our bar tab was VERY reasonable. The afternoon we had lunch it was a beautiful winter day and we were able to sit in the window next to the wood stove - gorgeous view of the lake and mountains. We shared the spinach & artichoke dip - loved that it came with tortilla chips and bread. My husband had the chili in a bread bowl which he loved and I had the jerk chicken sandwich on a pretzel roll which I also loved. My sandwich came with a side salad which was a great change from french fries. The dressing was delicious. We were there during the Olympics and they had a large screen outside to watch the events and it was really neat!! We have also been here during the summer time and highly recommend The Cottage for lunch, dinner or drinks - winter or summer!

We wanted something light for dinner, and decided on The Cottage. The menu is mainly sandwiches and that was perfect. The name fits it perfectly, it is a cozy cottage on Mirror Lake with a woodstove, and dim lighting. The sandwiches and drinks were all delicious, the only thing that would have added to it was a light dessert afterwards, unfortunately, they did not have anything.

Great view of Mirror Lake. Menu limited. Food good but not fantastic. Plan on $80 to $90 with 20% tip lunch per couple if you have a few drinks

We spent a night in the Inn a couple of years ago. We return to the cafe' from time to time when we are in Lake Placid for the afternoon. Both experiences were superb. By the way, the dining room at the Inn is very good as well with wonderful food and 5 star service. We are always treated as well as any guest could expect. I feel right at home and as if I'm with many friends when enjoying the atmosphere in the Cafe'. If we stop to eat, or just for a restful moment with a drink, we love our time there. Thanks to the Chef, and the great wait staff! .
