A fun eatery!

This place is so adorable on the inside, and really is the definition of a clean eats restaurant. They are great for celiac/gluten free and vegan/vegetarians because of their choices!!

There's no better sign of an honest-to-goodness "locally grown" restaurant offering than noticing farmers and volunteers who labor at the very local farms Main Squeeze sources from enjoying a meal! The food is consistently good, fresh, filling, and leaves you feeling great. I'm a big fan of the rejuvenate juice when I'm feeling like a detox is in order, and... More

My daughter and I were in town to tour the university. We are not vegetarians but this place was wonderful. I had the TLT, not sure what my daughter had (too immersed in my own food) but she loved hers as well.

Got the TLT (tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato,mayo on toasted sourdough) and added swiss cheese and avacado. This sandwich was amazing! So huge and delicious.

My family (daughter, son, wife, self) were in Missouri to attend a funeral, and took advantage of being (relatively) close to her parents in Columbia. Since our son is a committed vegetarian and Columbia is dominated by the schools of higher education (Mizzou, flagship for the University of Missouri system is located there; it also happens to be the alma...

I'm not a vegetarian, but I am a regular at the Main Squeeze for their tasty hummus wraps and juices. A bright, friendly place, great for grabbing a healthy lunch.

Our daughter is a vegetarian, so Main Squeeze was a "Must Try". The Greek salad was probably one of the freshest salads I have ever had. The grilled cheese was good, although a bit different to have tomatoes on the sandwich. The griller and smoothies were excellent! We came at a time that was not very busy yet the service... More

So glad we stopped in. Best in Vegetarian and Vegan options. I had the tempeh bacon, lettuce and tomato, super good. Staff is friendly and place is decorated so cool. My son had grilled cheese and Buddha's bowl and they were excellent. Healthy, fresh, organic ingredients. The chocolate chip cookies were amazing.

It is hard to find new things our young son enjoys eating and a smoothie from main squeeze is now on that list. We each got one and I can see why he loves it. Fresh ingredients, great taste. A bit expensive but worth it.

Well that makes us soooo happy. We LOVE kids at Main Squeeze; they are one of the biggest reasons we buy ORGANIC FOOD. Don't know how old your son is but we wanted to mention some of the ways we hope to accommodate families. Breast feeding moms are always welcome to pop in for a free cup of tea (we... More

If you like vegetarian, organic, fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced, try the Main Squeeze Restaurant in Columbia, MO when you are there visiting the university or attending a cultural event. The proprieter is an involved, committed, citizen of our fair city and serves up the best vegetarian food this side of Boulder, CO! You won't be disappointed. Smoothies, fresh juices... More
