the Whistling Kettle, in Ballston Spa (near Saratoga) provided one of the best lunches I've ever had. This restaurant is very unpretentious; my friend and I sat at one of the little outdoor (porch) tables and enjoyed early spring sunshine. I ate a crepe filled with turkey, cranberry, and Brie. The crepe itself was delicate and delicious; the generous size allowed me to take the un-eaten half along on my flight back home. The WK specializes in teas; they have 150 varieties! You can drink one with your meal and you can buy them in sample packs or larger to take home. Their French pressed coffee was excellent. All the staff -- waiters, retail cashier, everyone -- was gracious and competent. The menu includes a "high tea" type of platter, with lovely scones and a
Quiche on a three-tiered serving plate. I would love to return and sample some of the other offerings. Highest recommendation.
