A good lunch in Saratoga

esperanto_doughboy.jpgNick is heading to lunch in the Spa City and asked via Twitter

"What's the best lunch spot in Saratoga?"

There's a lot to choose from, depending on what kind of food/atmosphere you're looking for, but Nick's request immediately set off our craving for an Esperanto doughboy. Ravenous is also a good stop for crepes and pomme frites.

Got another favorite Saratoga lunch spot? Help Nick out.

Ravenous is AWESOME.
Sushi Thai Garden is also good.
My two other favorites are only open for dinner - Hattie's and Capriccio Saratoga.

Putname Street Market on Broadway. Best sandwiches ever. After you eat, go next door and ask William his suggestions for best 10 buck wine.

Hattie's now has brunch from 9am-2pm! Best fried chicken.

So many good choices already listed! My favorites are the buffet at Four Seasons if I'm wanting tasty & healthy or Scallions if I'm in the mood for cheesy & melty

Putnam Market definitely makes an awesome sandwich, but for something a little less pricey and for a load of variety try Legends Cafe on Congress St. It's a couple of blocks off of Broadway, so it's not as well-known by non-locals. It's the dark horse of sandwich places, in my opinion.

i agree re: the four seasons buffet. also: check out bread basket for superior soups/salads and of course sweet treats!

Keep it simple. Go to Compton's on Broadway. Enjoy!

Don't forget about The Local!

If that doughboy looks good to you, then go for it! On the other hand if it looks like an unappetizing wad of dough then I recommend a sub from Roma Imports, or their Greek Salad if you are not a sandwich person.

Cantina! So good!

The Circus Cafe is excellent. They have good American food and a wonderful, playful atmosphere.

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair.
