French Onion Soup Review: Lake Inn

A-


After failing horribly as an underhand slow pitcher, but before getting beaned with a softball in the arm, I walked into Lake Inn and ordered a tall Guinness and a bowl of French Onion Soup. Guinness was good, as always, but as the waitress approached with the FOS I actually let my hopes up for the first time in a long while. Good brown crock, cheese crust bubbled over the sides, even a fine grating on top of garnish. No side bread, but a good crock doesn't need it.
Now for the taste.

Only one type of cheese, a pretty good but not excellent mozzarella, a little let down, but the broth: excellent. Not too salty, not too strong, no heavy, bitter aftertaste. Nice big croutons and full, firm onions. Delicious. Wonderful.
Good show Lake Inn. Good show.

The Lake Inn is located at 3711 Hunt Rd., Lapeer, Mich., U.S.A.
