Schroon's Main Street’s a  hoppin’, it’s getting hot in the kitchen and there are good eats galore in Schroon.

Let’s start with the most important meal of the day, where there are a couple of headlines.

Morningstar Bistro – a favorite of many for its crepes and coffee, remains closed as its owner Myriam Friedman, looks to find a new owner.

As one door closes, another opens, and that would be Sticks and Stones – now serving Breakfast, which you can read about here.

And old favorites  -- like Pitkin’s --  remain a top choice with Marie’s out of the ballpark Blueberry pancakes. Higher Grounds is back with a modified breakfast menu (gone is our favorite Hungry man breakfast Burrito) and Shirley’s Diner celebrates its 3rd birthday in Schroon.

Joanies Baked Goodies (see our story here) is on schedule to open on July 2nd.

And we’d be remiss in reminding you that the Timberwolf Pub serves breakfast every day of the year – from 6:30 am.

Over on the east shore, the Adirondack General Store  -- under the new management of Maureen and Robert Diaz, are serving up mouth-watering breakfasts and lunches with the help of their kids!

Back on Main Street, Pitkin’s, The ‘Wolf, Flanagan’s  and Mr. P’s Mountain Smokehouse are open for dinner and lunch.

Joanies El Mexicana (on July 2) and Alpine Pizza are open for dinner.

But your dining experiences go both north and south of Main Street. Sticks and Stones  -- which just celebrated its 1st anniversary -- is now open 7 days a week with  breakfast, lunch and dinner. DeCesare’s Pizza is open for lunch and dinner and Witherbee’s Carriage House is open for dinner.

And north of town The Severance Store is serving up some wicked subs and sandwiches, with your choice of Boars Head or Oscars meats.

Drake’s Restaurant – now in its second year under new management of Chef Lorenzo Cecunjanin and his wife Jasmina serves delicious, authentic Italian and seafood seven nights a week.

In outer Schroon we recommend The Inn at Twilight, in Olmstedville, and Café Adirondack in Pottersville.
