Saratoga Springs has many, many restaurants. There is a huge range of restaurants from coffee shops to three-course fancy restaurants. There is a range of American, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Indian foods. Students often frequent restaurants downtown, but some restaurants are certainly saved for Celebration Weekend, when parents come up to visit. Uncommon Grounds, a coffee/bagel shop, is a popular Skidmore hangout to catch up with your friends on a Saturday morning or to do some work over the weekend (lots of outlets and free Wi-Fi!). Other popular Skidmore coffee spots include Coffee Traders and Virgil's House.
Some other traditional Skidmore spots include Esperanto, a popular late-night Mexican pizzeria conveniently located on Caroline Street right next to all of the bars. There are also a string of chain restaurants in Wilton including Chipotle, Five Guys, and fast food restaurants like McDonald's and Taco Bell. All of a college student's options are covered!
