In WWII, Jack Weissberg served in the European Theater in the US Army Air Force.  When he returned home, he opened the Saranac Lake Bakery and Left Bank Cafe, hoping to bring to the Adirondacks the spirit of the Left Bank in Paris that was the center of Artistic and cultural life from the 1920s to the 1960s.  Back then, the Left Bank was the "in" place.  Hemingway, Picasso, Cole Porter, and many other avant-garde artists mingled in the bistros of Saint Germain des Prés and Montparnasse, where they found their inspiration to create Modern Art.


Jack's son and daughter-in-law, Kenneth and Noella, have continued his legacy, first by creating the Sister City Association between Saranac Lake and the small town of Entrains in the vineyards of Burgundy, and then in 2010, by re-opening the Left Bank Cafe.  The Weissberg family hopes you will enjoy their little touch of France in Saranac Lake.
