Good food. Limited options to choose from. 2 soups. 2 sandwiches. They only had about 6 barstools to sit on.

This type of restaurant is definitely up my alley. I love the fact that they are vegetarian and vegan friendly. Probably one of the only veggie minded restaurants in town. The changing menu keeps it fresh as well. Service can be a bit slow because the owner is manning the till, cooking, and dish washing. There isn't a whole lot... More

Waited 3 years to get back to Lake Placid and Good Bite. Better than ever. Butternut squash soup excellent, paired with a salad. Also on the menu are several stews, hot apple cider and more. Tiny place with limited seating in and out. Don't miss it!

The quality of the food is very high and the staff are friendly. The food is very tasty. The portions could be a bit larger.

This vegan restaurant tucked in to down town Lake Placid is unique and stylishly delicious. As a local resident, I have the opportunity to try all the local fare and have tried a lot. None is like the Good Bite. Everything is homemade from their breads to their soups and it is all delicious. Even if you're a meat lover,... More

Eat at The Good Bite Kitchen - you will love it! My husband and I were in Lake Placid for a family wedding at the end of September 2016 and we ate at The Good Bite Kitchen four times in two days! Our sincere compliments to the staff; in fact, I told them "this is the best meal I have... More

As a vegan who is Lake Placid A LOT, I stop in here A LOT. The menu changes frequently which is nice. It's tiny so if you can't get a seat in there, plan to bring your food elsewhere (you can sit by the water in the summer and fall) About 1/3 of the menu is vegan so I can... More

My husband and I both had salads (SW Caesar and roasted veg); the greens were extremely fresh and tasty, but overall the salads were both bland. We were surprised at the lack of flavor, given that the Caesar was labeled as having "spicy" dressing and the roasted veg had lots of roasted seasonal vegetables and dressing, but both left us...

This place is very small but has lots of healthy vegetarian options for lunch at fair prices- soups, salads, bowls. I had a tempeh sandwich which came on delicious bread, and my husband had a salad which he enjoyed but perhaps could have been more filling for him. Staff was pleasant. Seating is limited. Definitely give it a try if... More

The Good Bite focuses on what's most important in a vegetarian menu: fresh locally sourced ingredients, perfectly prepared, and served with loving care. With a menu board located just outside this very small gem of a restaurant, my excitement was piqued when I saw zucchini noodles. These 'noodles' can be chosen as the base for a menu "Bowl" selection. Other... More
