Main Squeeze Natural Foods Cafe is what happened when a love of food and a passion for sustainability met a community filled with hungry, loving people. At Main Squeeze we are celebrating a decade of serving healthy and delicious all-natural foods. Super fresh and tasty food and drinks are central to our success, but we think it's our mission that keeps folks coming back.

Well, this is a vegetarian restaurant, with many vegan options, but I'm pretty much a carnivore. That said, during those periods of the year when our tradition is to fast (no meat, no dairy) and on those occasions (which are more often than you might think) when I crave Leigh's wonderful "Don't Be Gruel" bowl, I am always satisfied.

The Sunflower Caesar dressing for the house salad is delicious - one of my all-time faves! As a non vegetarian I am always pleasantly surprised at the great food choices and quality, and it makes it tempting to become a full-time vegetarian.

Vegan/vegetarian wasn't in the forefront of our taste buds while thoroughly enjoying the Spicy Black Bean Tostada! The colorful decor, along with the beans, roasted sweet potatoes, guacamole and chunky salsa, made it unexpectedly special.

This natural, local, organic restaurant walks the walk. Locally owned and the food is sourced from over a dozen farms within a 50-mile radius. It is prepared fresh and they recycle everything. LOTS of options - it was hard to choose between the interesting sandwiches, the amazing salads, and the yummy-sounding wraps. Reasonably priced and funky interior (we were given... More

Amazing vegan options, lovely smoothies, incredibly good baked goods (YES the coconut haystacks really are THAT good!) My best friend and I used to go here at least weekly (frequently multiple times - sometimes even more than once a day!) for their delicious foods. Very eco - compost, food sourced locally, filtered water from the tap, make own salad dressings.... More

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!
