saratoga, day 2 – tea & crepes

Day 2 in Saratoga we chilled and relaxed…it was perfect!

Since we are staying at a Bed & Breakfast, we started our morning with breakfast in the dining room buffet style.  Our host had a whole spread of fruit, yogurt, granola, eggs, bacon, grits and banana nut muffins.

I helped myself to a big plate of fruit, a mini muffin and some yogurt, granola and banana – with tea.

After a trip to the Farmer’s Market, we headed to Ballston Spa to hit up a Tea ShopThe Whistling Kettle.

There really wasn’t much else in Ballston Spa, except for this tea shop that the whole town seems to love!

They had so many different varieties of tea – I was in heaven!!

Brant went with the Arctic Raspberry iced tea.

And, I went with the Angel’s Dream.

And, we split the Cream Tea which consisted of a Lemon Blueberry and an Orange Cranberry scone.  Complete with clotted cream and raspberry preserves.

It was a great way to relax!

Yay for a fun tea shop!

I obviously had to buy some tea for the road, so I hit up their sampling station to choose.

After tea, we spent the rest of the day relaxing on the porch of our B and B.

Then, headed into town for dinner and DMB #2!

Since our lunch consisted of scones and tea, we wanted something substantial and filled with veggies for dinner.  We decided to try Ravenousa crepe shop!

We started with a small order of their famous Pommes Frites just so we could try them.

They were pretty good, but not out of this world.  Each and every fry was crispy though…with honey mustard dipping sauce.

Brant started with a beer, and I sipped on their homemade Mint Iced Tea made with green tea, mint leaves and honey.  YUM!

And I ordered the La Sorbonne crepe filled with goat cheese, asparagus and sun dried tomatoes.  Served with a side salad.

Oh my goodness, this crepe was amazing!  The crepe itself was thin and the perfect texture.  It had to have been seasoned with spices of something.  Their was plenty of goat cheese, asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes in every bite.

We both loved these.  We gobbled them up and headed out for out 2.5 mile walk into SPAC again.

The walk is gorgeous through the woods.

It was another great show!

  1. I have not been to that tea shop in BSpa yet! I’ll have to check it out the next time I’m there.

  2. That crepe looks fantastic, might be worth taking a shot at making it at home! & that bed n breakfast looks super tasty. Fruit + yogurt + granola = love.
