Great Italian fare: wood-fire oven-baked pizzas, pasta, gelato, and more. This is one of my favourite places to have dinner in town.

Blue Baker is a local favourite. They make fresh sandwiches, salads, and pizzas. What's more, all their breads are baked on the premises. You can buy whole loaves, as well as sweat loaves like banana breads and other treats. Their baked offerings are always a little different every day. It's a great lunch spot.
