Dive Divine

Décor at this hundred-year-old tavern is late-20th-century yard sale. Its clientele is as funky and exuberant as its east side locale. Emerald Ice Jukebox aside, some will fault Mickey’s for its lack of amenities, even call it shabby. It is nonetheless a cozy and charming hideaway. The bar food is what you’d expect—fried snacks, tasty burgers, mac ’n cheese and home-style specials—but unexpectedly exceptional: The “Good Food” sign in the window isn’t hype! If the cooking doesn’t win you over, the
old-fashioned prices surely will. Mickey’s serves lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends with patio dining in warm weather.
