Superior Merchandise Co.

We got our daily dose of caffeine here and were incredibly distracted by all of the amazing, well-curated home goods and clothing. We nearly bought the whole store.

Their “doughboys” are like, woah. Perfect dough pillows filled with cream cheese and fried — what more could you ask for after a few beers? (Can someone please mail us some right now? Please?) All of the street food at Esperanto was incredible.

There are three levels of eating and drinking in this barn turned pub. It’s charming spot to grab dinner and a couple of beers in downtown Troy.
