The Coop takes two simple concepts — rotisserie chicken and Latin flavors — and puts them together to make something new and exciting. At the basis of almost every meal is their perfectly roasted, deliciously seasoned chicken. On top of that, you’ll find all sorts of sides that really make the meal like potato dishes, beans, tortillas, salsa, and mac and cheese. The place itself is cozy and full of character; as soon as you walk in, you can tell that it’s a real local favorite.

As anyone who loves bagels knows, finding a good one can be a lot harder than you would expect. Inhabitants and visitors to Gillette have no reason to worry, however, because The Main Bagel has them covered with fresh bagels every day, prepared the same way that they do it in New York City. The key, of course, is boiling them before baking them.

A microbrewery with the city’s best pizza inside — it may sound like a dream, but it’s a dream come true at Gillette Brewing Company.

You can drop in every day for wood-fired pizzas in a dazzling array of choices, including but not limited to a Nutella dessert calzone. Nothing goes with a great pizza better than a great beer, though, and you have ample choices of those, ranging from Grampa Phil’s Pils on the light end to the Blacktooth Indian Paintbrush Ale (their own version of an IPA) for those who crave bitterness.
