Donuts in the Adirondacks Tue, 08/2/05 11:22 AM (permalink)
On Saturday I tried the donuts at the Raquette Lake General Store for the first time, and I was astonished. They're the best homemade "friedcakes" I've had in many years. If you happen to be on Route 28 in the Adirondacks, take a one mile detour to the store. You'll be glad you did. By the way, the chocolate chip cookies are also sublime.

Another great donut source, just a few miles up the road, is Mary's in Inlet. They have a large variety of donuts, breads, and pastries. Their friedcakes are very good too, but I think the real star of the show is their maple fudge donuts. They're way too rich to have often, but man, when you do, it's heaven.

    Those are two of my favorites also. Last time up, I had breakfast at the Tamarack Cafe in Inlet then walked across the street to stock up on donuts.

        Well, not in Inlet but Saranac Sourdough in Lake Placid is well worth the stop for breakfast. Eggs prepared in various ways featuring Oscar's smoked meats with your choice of their sourdough bread. Buckwheat pancakes and sourdough flapjacks with local maple syrup. Excellent coffee, nice folks, relaxed atmosphere. We were up for five days of kayaking and ate breakfast there everyday.

            Blue Moon in Saranac is also a breakfast favorite. While you're up there, Lake Placid Brewery has some excellent beers and passable food. Sit outside and check out Mirror Lake. Caribbean Cowboy was pretty good eclectic kind of place. Sort of panasian/caribbean. Desperados for Mexican also good. Go take a look around Lake Placid Lodge and act like you plan on bringing your wife up for your anniversary so they take you seriously. It's stunning. At least have a drink in the bar.

              I think the last time I was there, I ate at Desparados and had the fajitas.. they were huge.....Were they open in 1995?
              I ate at some mexican place that was on the main drag, only going past the ice rink there and it was on the left side of the road...
