Not fancy...in a good way. Grub breakfast food and a solid juke-box. They advertise "scones"...which are really a super greasy fry-bread that is not to be missed. Warning...you will feel glutenous after eating hear.

Another great "dive" spot. We can recommend lots of fancier / high brow foodie hangouts in town (that we certainly enjoy)...but we tend to be suckers for local spots that eschew food trends and just do what they do. This is the kind of place that hasn't changed in decades...and you hope won't. Try the maple-nut cinnamon roll. And don't worry about the feeling of shame you will feel after eating it all yourself. You can atone for your food sins later.

Shopping
If you find yourself needing hardware (not likely since you are probably just visiting town)...than do yourself a favor and go here instead of Home Depot, Lowes, etc. You'll pay a little more...but walk away WAY less frustrated and fatigued.
