This place has everything. My favorite is Local Oak, "Great food and Drinks" Gloria's, Lockhart BBQ, Enos pizza, Haddies, Odd Fellows and many many more. Lots of great choices.

We visited this past weekend before the Christmas holiday. We stopped at a bookstore/coffee shop/bar (The Wild Detectives), a chocolate shop (Dude, Sweet Chocolate), a...More
