What a disappointment. The place was so cold (62) you had to wear your coat in order to eat. Very simple breakfast served. Corned beef hash was from a can! Really? Waitress not friendly. Didn't really listen to our order because she brought coffee when it was not asked for. Food got cold after second bite. Would not recommend.

I got an egg muffin and my son got french toast. Both were extremely basic and simple. It was cheap though. Probably won't go back.

If you need to be part of a "scene" or are looking for a trendy spot, look elsewhere. This is what food was about before the food Network turned us all into food porn fans. This food will not beguile you or help you gain Instagram followers. It's just damn good food. Eaten here for years. Grew up in the... More

Maybe because me and my GF look like we are from the city but when we walked in it was like a scene from one of those western movies where the music stops playing and all the heads turn towards you. There was no where to sit and it looked like the women behind the counter could care less about... More

Went upstate on the coldest weekend on the coldest weekend of the year. High of maybe -14 degrees for the day. We planned on going to the Pancake breakfast as it was Winter Carnival weekend, but parking was rough, but spotted this restaurant advertising "Mama's" cooking. We really enjoyed it and it is usually a busy place, but the cold... More

This is the place you want to eat breakfast. On our previous visit to Saranac Lake, we went to a cute breakfast place and were disappointed. So on this trip I asked where the breakfast diner sort of place was and our motel hostess recommended DJ Rustic. We were delighted! Amazing bacon both thick and crispy, just right scrambled eggs,...

We had breakfast at DJs. The eggs, ham, bacon and toast were all good. We asked for our home fries to be cooked well, but they weren't. They tasted good anyway. Very reasonable price.

This is our standard stop in Saranac Lake for breakfast. Huge portions, low prices. Sausage biscuit with gravy is excellent, very filling, better than my husband's blueberry pancake ( he ate half of my biscuit). Seems as if this place has been couthed up since we were there several years ago. Still has a local feel.

Thank Trotpeg
