Very nice early morning coffee haven. I'd much rather go here than to the local Starbucks - which is in the middle of the town of Lake Placid but the staff was rude and slow and it took FOREVER to get a relatively easy coffee order. The Coff E Bean is at the end of the hallway of the Alpine... More

It was a cold morning and I didn't want to go outside but I didn't want hotel coffee. To my pleasant surprise, our hallway at the Golden Arrow had direct access to the Alpine Shopping Mall and Coff E Bean and Expresso Bar. The owner also has good quality yogurt that he prepares at your request. I left with 2... More

We discovered this spot across from where we stayed...what a gem! Open balcony overlooking Mirror lake and friendly, open atmosphere.

After reading the reviews I had to stop by on the search for good coffee. The coffee was outstanding! They had a maple coffee that was wonderful! You need to go into the mall to find the coffee bar at the end. Once you know it is easy to find and get to. Best coffee I found in town!

I went for the macchiato and (home made?) blueberry muffin. Both fresh, tasty and excellent. Enjoyed it outside with view on the lake

The view is great, but that was about it. There was only one person working so it took a while to get food for 6. The egg sandwiches were terrible, muffin not toasted, cheese not melted. microwaved egg. The Belgian waffles might have been good except for the still partly frozen strawberries on top. No honey for tea. The coffees... More

I discovered this place my first day in LP and I decided it would be where I'd get my fast, simple breakfasts to go. I was at Coff E both mornings at about 7 am. No wait at all. A serious young woman (student from Macedonia) was the only person working. She was precise in taking my order, serious about... More

The views are stunning, the coffee great, and atmosphere welcoming. Employees are very nice. We made several visits to this local coffee shop. I don't recommend the Belgian waffles, which were rather thin and not fuffy. There were many optional toppings for waffles.

We looked forward to coffee while shopping in Lake Placid. It was not easy to find as it was amongst a number of shops using one entrance. Signage not easy to see. Had an Iced Latte that was not freshly pressed express & frozen lemonade that tasted artificial. But the view is great
