If you can’t decide what to eat for breakfast while visiting Lake George, head to The Sagamore Resort’s breakfast buffet where you’ll enjoy everything from made-to-order omelets, build-your-own yogurt parfaits, homemade Corned Beef Hash, muffins and more.

Along with the abundant breakfast options, diners can also take in views of the lake and surrounding mountains (look east for the popular Buck Mountain and its next-door-neighbor Pilot Knob Mountain) as The Sagamore Resort boasts a more than 130-year history in Bolton Landing.

Executive Chef Adam Savage said the resort wanted to appeal to as many tastes as possible when deciding on its breakfast buffet offerings. “We looked at all of the categories that make a bountiful breakfast buffet and hit all of those areas – both hot and cold,” he said. “We also offer different daily specialty items like mini egg burritos, stuffed French toast and more.”


If the breakfast buffet, which is $23 a person at La Bella Vita inside The Sagamore Resort, isn’t your thing, there is also a sit-down breakfast at the same restaurant. “We feed a lot of people, so having both options just made sense,” Savage said. 

When it comes to breakfast, several things set The Sagamore Resort apart from the others, according to Savage.

“It comes down to the quality, execution and presentation of the product,” he said. “It’s also not just a great breakfast buffet, but guests get to enjoy the outstanding scenery as well.”
