Your page does not indicate what country you're from, so its hard to answer your question. I am from the US and thought that it was a little bit pricey, since it is a small town. Definitely not pricey like New York, but if you want to go to a restaurant, I recall it being around15-$20 US for a nice sit-down restaurant. We ended up doing most of our own cooking. There is a Safeway supermarket in town and they have pre-packaged "lumberjack" sandwiches that were 3 in a box. We lived off of these and they were about5 for 3 sandwiches. There are hostels and a campsite up the hill from town and there is a bus that will get you from the hostel to the town area. Hope this helps! Its a beautiful area.
There's a second hand store 229 bear st in the bsmnt (under the cinema) for super awesome and cheap stuff. The Last Temptation.
