S'more's at Bailey's Cafe



S'mores are one of the simple things that make us happy. Sure, they're just toasted marshmallow, graham crackers and a Hershey bar--but c'mon, they're toasted marshmallow, graham crackers and a Hershey bar! And there's something about assembling one yourself that makes you feel like a kid again.

Alas, the s'more has always been a treat relegated to summer camp outs, and fall bonfires.

But this weekend we found a place where they bring the bonfire right to your table. OK -- not the whole bonfire, but enough to melt your marshmallow.

Bailey's Cafe in Saratoga Springs lets you make your own s'mores right at your table.

s'more platter.jpgThe s'mores platter for two comes with 1 Hershey bar, and enough graham crackers and marshmallows to make five sweet sandwiches for $6.50. They also offer it for four-- just double the fixings.

In the middle of the platter, there's a funky looking pot of sterno to roast your marshmallows over. Here's a heads-up though-- there isn't a big open flame, just what looks like some cool glowing blue gel. You'll wonder how hot this could actually be. Trust us, it's pretty hot. Our tip --if you want golden brown marshmallows, hold them high--about 8-10 inches above the pot. We lit a few on fire before we figured this out for ourselves.

They're s'mores, so they'd be fun to do with pretty much anyone, but we're thinking they'd make for a great first date plan. Bailey's is a cozy place to hang out and have a drink, and making s'mores is something fun do while you get to know each other.

Plus --you know--they're yummy.

Bailey's also has make-your-own-pasta night on Wednesdays during the winter months. For $12.99, you get salad and TWO pasta dishes, each with your choice of sauce and three toppings. Each serving is big enough for two meals. You get one there, and they package the other for you to take home, like the perfect doggie bag.

I haven't been to it in a few months, but it's my vote for best insane food deal in Saratoga.
