Give way to nostalgia's misty grip by sampling the store's collection of vintage sweets such as peppermint lumps, rock candy, or chocolate-covered sunflower seeds ($5.99+/lb.). A sumptuous array of truffles and soft marshmallow clouds makes mouthwatering surprises for sugar lovers, and caramel-filled chocolates ($16.95/lb.) trap sweet teeth on cloud nine. Chocolate-covered peanuts and raisins mask their healthy interiors with rich, milky skin ($8.99/lb.), and predatory gummy bears infiltrate sugary herds by donning an edible chocolate skin. On summer days, homemade ice cream ($2.95–$3.95) gives panting tongues a break from constantly licking the freezer to cool off.

Bucks Tavern combines the atmosphere of a cozy neighborhood sports bar with the menu of a locally minded gastropub. Start with an order of crispy potato skins—stuffed with cheese, bacon, and scallions, and served with sour cream ($9)—or a bowl of Bucks' homemade beef chili ($5) before tempting your taste buds into swimming up-tongue with a grilled-salmon salad (baby spinach, provolone, tomatoes, candied walnuts, and hard-boiled egg, topped with Atlantic salmon, $13). A hand-breaded, all-natural whitefish sandwich ($8.50) will satisfy lunchtime customers who suspiciously resemble a flock of seagulls in a trench coat. Even pub staples are delivered with an upscale twist. The grilled cheese showcases creamy havarti, tomato, fresh basil, and a drop of honey on a pedestal of wheatberry toast ($7), and Dan's burger tops a hand-sculpted beef patty with pepper jack, bacon, fried-onion straws, and a drizzle of barbecue sauce ($8). All sandwiches come with a side of Bucks’ slaw or seasoned fries—the raffish, fast-living, smooth-talking brother of waffle fries. A children's menu, meanwhile, delights toy-humans with favorites such as sliders, chicken fingers, and mac ‘n’ cheese, all served with a side of fries.
