After a great weekend camping on Saranac Lake we were looking for a nice place to eat an early lunch. So happy that we came across Left Bank Café, located right on the river. We were able to get one of the tables on the porch which was ideal. Ordered a delicious tartine with smoked salmon, dill and avocado. The staff were all very friendly. Seemed like the local spot to be. Highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.

During the Fourth of July weekend we stopped in for dinner and were pleasantly surprised with the most fantastic dinner. We started with a light and flavorful French Onion soup, followed by salad and duck confit with peaches. All were fabulous including our son's ratatouille stuffed pepper. The outdoor setting was simply gorgeous and our server was extremely knowledgeable about our wine and dinner.

We were walking along the street looking for somewhere inspiring and saw the sign that they had a live band playing at 7. This intrigued us so we went in to ask to look at the menu. The woman we spoke to was fantastic. She knew everything that was In the food and told me where I could substitute for gluten free. We were seated on the patio overlooking the river and had a delicious French meal in a great, relaxing atmosphere. The server was friendly and helpful, the meals well presented and full of flavour.
Highly recommend!

We stopped in for a sweet crepe and ice tea after an afternoon of walking around. We sat outside near the river watching people fish, it was very relaxing. The crepes were very good too. Unlike many crepe places we've been, the sweet crepes were not overly sweet. The balance of sweet was just right!

Left Bank Cafe offers a quiet spot next to the river to stop for lunch or dinner. Call ahead to see if they will have live music. The food is delicious and they have a great dessert menu. Who doesn't want dessert?! A wonderful addition to the town and a must visit if you are in the Adirondacks!
