We stopped by for lunch last week. The Montreal sandwich was fabulous. My husband had a salad served in a large bowl and said it was delicious. I think he also had a hot dog. The view is amazing. If it had not been raining, we might have chosen to eat outside by the fire pit. This is a fun... More

My husband and I decided to have lunch at the Cottage Café. We were warmly greeted and seated where we had a marvelous view of Mirror Lake. The place was cozy and filled up quickly. I ordered spinach and artichoke dip but found it too spicy for my taste. I told Deborah, our server, that I would like a cup... More

While the Mirror Lake Inn definitely isn't on the cheap side, choosing to dine at the Cottage Cafe is well within anyone's budget. The Cafe is small, but cozy and the food is good.

Great location near the Mirror Lake Inn on Mirror Lake. Nice bar area with pub food and snacks in adjacent dining area with wood stove and view of lake. There is an outdoor patio with another wood stove outside. Great place for lunch and snacks with drinks, especially if you've overdone it having large restaurant meals during your trip.

The Cottage has a typical pub menu. The service is good, the food decent, great view. It can be very crowded and it is small.

We went in for an afternoon drink and lunch and so glad we did. The view can't be beat, it was warm and cozy on a snowy day. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was fresh and the presentation was wonderful. Simple sandwiches had a little twist to them and came with a very nice salad.
