The only reason I didn't give them a rating of 5 was because we only tried two sandwiches for take out. That's a small portion of their menu. I had the Ruby sandwich - a vegetarian reuben sandwich with tempeh for the meat. I totally enjoyed it - from the rye bread to the mild sauerkraut. The sandwich also has... More

This small cafe on 9th Street in Columbia does organics in a big way! Their menu is great and very large! Their choices for fresh squeezed juice are varied and creative! They have salads, wraps, breakfast, lunch, you name it!! They have it! If you want healthy and really great food try this!

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.
