Our Story

Our family’s favorite thing about Chautauqua is it’s magical ability to become almost anything for anyone. It’s what our family of five fell in love with 5 years ago when we first came for the summer. Whether you’re looking for moments of peace and quiet, or a nature-fueled adventure – Chautauqua’s got a little something for everyone.

We wanted to mirror that here at Lake Life Café. With something for everyone, our goal is to make your day everything you hope for with the perfect sip of coffee, delicious locally baked goodies, or light salad and sandwich meal. 

Whatever you’re looking for, we’re here to make it happen. At Lake Life Café, it’s your time.
