Fodor's Expert Review Dime Store

$ Downtown Diner

In a centrally located space that held Leo's Nonsmoking Coffee Shop for several decades, this bright and hip diner opened in summer 2014, providing downtown office workers and hotel guests a much-appreciated source of seasonally driven, well-prepared comfort fare. Breakfast is served all day and ranges from hearty (fried egg, bacon, cheese, and local Mama Lil's hot peppers on a brioche) to healthy (granola, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and wildflower honey). Later in the day, consider meat loaf topped with bacon and red-onion jam, or a refreshing salad of roasted beets, mixed greens, cucumbers, sheep's milk feta, and herbed vinaigrette. There's always a fresh-baked pie of the day, and thick regular or malted shakes. Although it's breakfast and lunch only, Dime Store does stay open until 6 pm on weekdays, potentially late enough in this early-to-bed town to make it a dinner option.
