Brewery
$$
“They have great pizza and in-house baked goods. They also brew their own beer, and they serve wine. A lot of locals tend to eat here so it’s a good place to get a look at the downtown social scene. Also, on Sundays they make the best croissants. But get there no later than 10am as they sell out. :)”

Restaurant
“Best sushi in town hands down. Usually you do have to call in advance for a reservation. However, if they are booked you can show up before they open (I would suggest at least 30 min prior) and put your name down on a waiting list outside the restaurant for bar seating. If show up early enough you should have no problem getting in. ”
