The Baroque city centre with the town hall, the Armenian Church, the Cathedral and the old brewery.

Food in Ivano-Frankivsk, like the rest of the Ukraine is fairly good and will sit well in the stomach of most western travelers.
If visiting a supermarket, price on items will vary greatly. Western labeled products will be labeled with prices comparible to western prices. Similar goods with non-western labels will sell much cheaper.
Two glasses of Beer and a bag of potato chips will cost about 5 US dollar at local bars.
As with other Ukrainian cities of its size a beer should cost under $1 and a large bag of crisps (potato chips) in a normal bar/pub should cost a maximum of $1. If you are paying more than that you know you are being ripped off.
