This summer, Lake Placid welcomed three new caffeine slinging cafes and I couldn't be happier about it! Each with their own offerings and charm, the new players in town are worthy of a visit on your next trip to Lake Placid. From stunning views, farm fresh food, and coffee to fuel your Adirondack adventure, these new cafes are local-approved additions to help create your own perfect Lake Placid day.
Around The Lake
While many locations serve coffee on Main Street. Around The Lake (Can we call it ATL?) is a true coffee shop and I am welcoming it with open arms. Everything from the menu to the decor is refreshingly simple, with an ambiance that proudly says back to the basics. Currently serving only drip coffee, nitro cold brew, and tea, ATL is the perfect place to slowly sip your brew while you work, read, or simply take in the rustic-chic surroundings. ALT also has a selection of local baked goods and granola, the perfect addition to a cup of coffee. ATL is also extremely pet friendly with water bowls and treats for a pup in need. Excited to try them out? Follow along on their new instagram account @Aroundthelakecoffee.
Bliss and Vinegar
Located across from the Olympic Speed Skating Oval, Bliss and Vinegar is a wonderful addition to Lake Placid and is helping to make lower Main Street come alive. A truly unique eatery, Bliss and Vinegar is an herbal cafe and apothecary, serving some of the best local goodies around. Offering freshly baked sourdough, farm to table brunch, housemade kombucha and herbal drinks, and an extensive tea menu, Bliss and Vinegar may just be the trendiest spot in Placid! Starting out as Forever Wild Beverage Co. Lake Placid local, Jennifer Jubin, has expanded her business into something so much more, and Lake Placid is all the better for it.
The kind of place you wander into and never want to leave, Bliss and Vinegar's homey feel keeps you coming back. You can feel the love and passion that goes into every aspect of this place, from the food, empowering art displayed on the walls, to their dedication working with local farmers and makers. See their ever-changing menu and upcoming workshops on their instasgram! Follow along at @blissandvin.
Coff E Bean
If views are what you’re after, Coff E Bean is your spot! Located at the end of the Alpine Mall and under new ownership, this little coffee shop overlooks Mirror Lake and offers panoramic views of the Adirondack Mountains. Serving everything from drip coffee, espresso drinks, smoothies, and breakfast options, Coff E Bean is a great spot for a quick breakfast on the go or a slow morning on the balcony to take in the views.
