Guidebook for Ballston Spa

Food Scene
Here is a list of some restaurants in the area. There are a few restaurants which are to be avoided. I do NOT recommend Leon's Mexican, or El Cilantro in Ballston Spa. It is difficult to get breakfast in Saratoga Springs, and the best place, the Country Corner Café, is usually very crowded on the weekends, with a line out the door. Ballston Spa has better breakfast, Saratoga is better for dinner and drinks, in general.
Excellent breakfast and lunch, waffles, until 2 pm. In Ballston Spa on Front St.

This restaurant doesn't look that appealing from the outside, but the food is all home made and incredible. I recommend the baba ganoush, any lamb dish and the baklava.

They grow their own herbs... Often voted the best restaurant in Saratoga. Fairly expensive fine food. Menu changes daily I think.

Ravenous serves delicious crêpes, both savory and sweet. The portions are small, as is the restaurant, but the food is very tasty. The pommes frites are great. I would try to go at a quieter time, such as late afternoon. In downtown Saratoga.

This is definitely a 5 star restaurant, and people come from far away to dine here. The food is amazing, much of it is organic. It's a little bit dressy, sort of "smart casual." They have gluten-free options.

SPAC has live music concerts, the NYC ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra and a big jazz festival. It is a non-profit outdoor theater with tickets for either under the roof or seating or the lawn. Bring your own water ($5/bottle there) and blankets or low chairs for the lawn. I think they search coolers, because some things are prohibited. You can park at SPAC and the price for regular parking is $10. If it gets all filled for big concerts, there is then premier parking which ranges in price from $15-40. You can take a taxi, which usually costs about $10-11. However if you use uber rather than a regular local taxi you may be charged congestion pricing which can be up to $41.

Essentials
Hannaford Supermarket
11 Trieble Avenue
Bring your own bags, they do not have any unless you get them from a vending machine. This is a small grocery store, but it is a two-minute walk away around the corner, and it has fresh vegetables and fruit as well as yogurt and specialty cheeses. It is very inexpensive and I don't recommend the least expensive items.
