The Ballston Spa-based Whistling Kettle opened up its second location here in Troy on Broadway, and over the weekend I finally had the opportunity to nibble at some crepes with a taste of tea. I drink my tea black by the way, like my coffee, no honey. I always find it more satisfying to get the full flavor and essence.
It was very busy that day, so service seemed a little backed up, it's a popular new place so I can understand. Once I got the tea and my ham and swiss maple panini, I was all set. I would recommend you take your time and choose your tea wisely, think about it, there's a lot to choose from.
On the food side you will see the menu has crepes, paninis, salads, sandwiches, and, of course, tea. I also hear they offer a special gluten-free menu.
Be sure to grab a sample of your favorite tea on your way out, and keep the kettle whistling at home.
