Coffee was freshly brewed and great. Food was made fresh and was tasty. This is not fast food and was worth the wait... read more

Out of tea,out of soup,I guess we were out of luck. Burger was ok, very little chicken on wrap.Waitress was "very tire"or so she kept saying. Caught staff by surprise when we requested silverware,mustard and ketchup. Would pass on this place.

I have to say Main Street is my favorite local restaurant. Hands down the best salad of anyplace in the area. I love the goat cheese salad with chicken ...make sure to ask for the dried cranberries and also the fruit and nut salad with grilled chicken. I have one of these salads almost weekly. I also enjoy their Greek... More

Just passing through. Our intention was to go to the Boone Tavern however they close at 2:00 pm until 5:00pm. So we went a couple of doors down to this neat little place. I had a Philly sandwich with a side of pasta salad. It was delicious. It's so hard to find restaurants that serve pasta salad at all so... More

We stop by for the lunch some time with friends and they have vegetarian food which is pretty good. And their sandwich is pretty good for the lunch.

The Main Street Café is located as you would expect right in the center of this quaint artists colony and college town. We visited on a Friday night and were surprised to find only 6 other couples eating. The service was prompt and flexible, willing to accommodate dietary health needs. We started with Fried Green Tomatoes-- perfectly fixed. The we... More

I live locally and have eaten at this restaurant several times, usually on Sunday afternoons. Not once have I had good service. It is sad because the food is quite good. Correcting this one issue would make this a very nice local restaurant with a great atmosphere.

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