Quills Coffee new location on Main St. is a great place to start. For BBQ try Feast BBQ Another option in the same area is Grind Burger Kitchen. The B & B Lamps and Shades is my personal favorite. Top that all of with a cookie or other treat from Please & Thank You

Joe's Crab Shack is not local-it is a chain and is not really cool.  I haven't been there recently so I hesitate to make recommendations - sometimes restaurants have a very short half life.  I also don't like to use TripAdvisor recommendations, but Yelp has recommendations and they are mostly for food.
