Economy Inn

Less than 1 mile from The Bicycle Man shop.

It is an older motel being remodeled with some success. Customers who have stayed there have given us mixed reviews on their experience. Cost is $45 and up single, $55 and up double.

Because it is on the ShortLine Bus route, (see bus info above) it is a good place to stay if you will arrive by bus. The Bicycle Man shop is also on the bus route. I can loan you a bike to get to/from the bike shop while you are in town.

The Collegiate


A fine local diner operated for three generations by the Ninos family. From fish to chicken they have what you would expect from a good diner. Try their Rueben sandwich or Greek salads for a pleasant surprise. Their prices and portions are a pleasant surprise too. And check out the menus, each has a different, original piece of art on the cover. (Our family’s favorite)


Nana’s Japanese Café

Locally popular unique oriental restaurant.

Café Za


An international menu of fine dining is served at this popular local restaurant. From curried chicken to flavorful Tofu (really!) Some of our customers arrange their visits around the Za’s schedule. (My favorite.)



Terra Cotta Coffee House


  A welcome addition to Alfred in 2003 Terra Cotta offers many unique and distinctive blends. Add their delicious foods from their menu and you are in for a treat. Wide variety of coffee and teas, selection of salads and sandwiches. Also board games and a cyber café too


We also have local Pizza shops and a Subway
