Huge menu, home cooked style food. Perfect for a hearty breakfast. Corned beef hash is made on site, all kinds of creative pancakes (like apple crisp and almond joy), and several variations of eggs Benedict. This place is not fancy but the food is great!

Staff is nice ( on some days; stopped by on another occasion but had to leave for other reasons) but the restaurant itself is tired and it reflects( Perfect job for Robert Irvine). Will not go there again and wouldn't recommend... More

Great breakfast diner. The staff is friendly and the food is really good. Very pleased with the portions that are given as well. Awesome place for a home cooked breakfast!

About a year ago my husband and I stopped by the Center Street Cafe for breakfast. Initially it looked promising: busy and a nice buzz about the place. However, after waiting, along with several others who entered ahead of us, for over ten minutes and not being acknowledged by any of the staff we opted to go elsewhere. Today we... More

It's too bad we had to wait almost an hour for the food, because once we got it, it was excellent. Eggs Benedict was tasty, hash home made and delicious. The cinnamon toast and buns were also great. Lots I locals come here for the large portions and good prices. Unfortunately, it took an hour for the food to come... More

My husband and I travel to Auburn/Lewiston to visit family almost yearly from Texas. Last year it was recommended that I try breakfast at Center Street Café. We will never go anywhere but there now! Their corned beef hash was the best I've ever tasted as was the homemade breads, muffins, etc. Very friendly and courteous waitstaff. It appears that... More

After a fair wait our Waitress comes out with a partial order. Mixed Berry Waffle and a side of ham for myself. She also had a side plate of bacon for my wife, but without... More

This place has an amazing selection of pancakes and egg scrambles, pesto scramble is my favorite. The apple toast is wonderful, as is their flavored coffee. My four year old son begs me to go here every weekend.

We live near Auburn and come up several times a week for grocery shopping, automotive, doctor visits, and all manner of errands. Until our car repair guy told us about the Center Street Cafe, we'd drag ourselves to Denny's when we needed to be in Auburn early in the day. Now we get wholesome, delicious food in manageable portions, served... More
