Locally grown food at The Hungry Fish Cafe

The fiance and I tried out a new restaurant today – it’s a small cafe/diner, and it is owned by our new friend we met recently, Sarah Fish. It is appropriately called The Hungry Fish Cafe.

Sarah gets her food locally from farmers and a community garden – it is only the freshest and the best quality. You will not be disappointed. In addition, there is a fun, friendly diner-like atmosphere.

After eating you can shop for grass-fed local beef, peanut butter from the Saratoga Peanut Butter Company, spices, cookie cutters, and more.

A big thank you to the fiance for the following photos.

Cheap, excellent breakfast at Don & Paul’s Coffee Shop

I have found another excellent diner in the area: Don & Paul’s Coffee Shop in Waterford.  The fiance and I went there today with our friend Dave, who had discovered it awhile ago with his wife.

This place is like a combo coffee shop, diner, and corner store.  They sell cigarettes, lottery tickets, and old school drinks like Mellow Yellow.  The place is decorated in old school clocks, pictures, even a case of knives are on the wall, and there is a bit of a nautical theme going on: wheels that you use to steer boats (what are those things called?), old lanterns, shells, etc.  It looks like the sort of place that would allow smoking inside if that was still legal in New York State.

While the coffee is served in normal coffee cups, the water and orange juice were served in gigantic mason jars.  Which was awesome.

Here is a picture of my food:
