My first afternoon in Cooperstown, I walked around the village. Located this spot, just a short jaunt away from the HOF. Had drinks and enjoyed a bowl of soup. Found the spot welcoming, good service by the bar tender. Prices were reasonable. Would recommend.

The food was actually pretty good for a casual dining spot. The service was great and the overall ambience was small town sweet.
