Good food. Good price

I've eaten at this restaurant twice and both times was good. The location is nice, being on the Boone Tavern Square.

Since moving to Berea I have tried to eat at the Main Street Cafe 5 separate times. That's right 5 times. Every time I try to go they are not open. Last night the door was unlocked, the sign was on, and they let us walk into the restaurant before informing us that it was closed. The hours listed were... More

I came for coffee and breakfast. I arrived just as they were unlocking the doors and they had taken a quiche out of the oven minutes before. Needless to say, that is what I ordered. It was outstanding.

Big disappointment. Recommended by one of the shop owners. Would not recommend. Meat over cooked, sandwiches were dry.

Upon arrival at the Berea Visitors Center we asked if there was a vegetarian restaurant in town and the Mainstream Cafe just off campus was recommended. It was an excellent recommendation --- this restaurant ought to be a destination spot. My wife and I had a fantastic lunch served swiftly and cheerfully. Our bowls of homemade herbed tomato soup were... More

Berea is not known for its wide range of restaurants (peeping in windows, I only saw people eating burgers and pizza). Main St Cafe seemed more interesting because it looked like fresh sandwiches & salads. (Turns out they have hot meals too). My Tuscan Portobello sandwich with pesto on artisan bun was delicious (and I'm not vegetarian) as were the... More

The Boone Tavern recommended this restaurant. We tried and tried to get waited on and we noticed other tables having the same problem. We finally got some water and thought there was hope. After 35-40 minutes we left and talked with another family that had a major problem getting their check so they decided to leave. They said the food... More

Main Street Cafe has a nice atmosphere. However, I am not extremely impressed in the meals I received. The hamburger was not seasoned well enough and the bread did not satisfy. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I decided to get another meal. A Chicken Wrap. The presentation and delivery was nice. Yet, I did not taste any flavor... More

Each time I'm in Berea, I come get this salad. I've even tried to recreate it at home. Very casual atmosphere. Service is slow but I'm not in a rush. My only complaint is that the basket of sweet potato fries was crazy small. They came in a basket (with no paper lining) and we all kind of looked at... More

Main Street is one of the popular places around campus, so recently when for lunch I decided to stop by and see what the hype was about. I got there and there weren't many people there which had me excited because I thought my food would come out quick. I was wrong though, it took about fifteen minutes for my... More
