The only reason this place is getting 3 circles is because it is in Festus/Crystal City, so expectations and standards are lower since there aren't as many options. Called this place to try and pick something up for the first time, after a brisk "main street", I was asked if I could be put on hold which of course I... More

Main Street Cafe is operated by a local family. No cheesy made up decor, no costumed clowns badgering you every 30 seconds, it's just hometown food. Prices are extremely reasonable, Breakfast all day and a different special every day. I'm particularly fond of their reuben sandwich. Served hot, corned beef, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and a pile of fries. A... More

We ate here with our 2 boys after discovering it on trip advisor with high ratings. It does not look like much from the road, and walking in, it is a wide open room with tables. The staff were friendly and we were seated immediately, and orders taken as soon as we were ready. The menu was surprisingly extensive, including... More

From the time you are greeted till you walk out its great. The workers are polite and courteous. The food is not only very tasty, but the prices are very reasonable.

We usually eat at least once at Main Street Cafe when we are in Festus visiting family and love it. It is a great little cafe that always has a little bit of everything on the menu. We have yet to get the same thing twice, except that my wife always gets some type of breakfast item, and are always... More

this is hands down the best breakfast in town, just plain good food done right, and service above and beyond what is the norm.

If you like breakfast food this is the place to eat. It's cheap and taste awesome. The only downfall is the place can get pretty smokey at times. Other than the smoke the workers are always fast and the food is always worth the price.

We love the fried cod and catfish. You get a salad or soup, two big pieces of fish, potatoes (the home fries are really good) and a vegtable of the day. All for about $7.00 for seniors! Many couples share if you aren't a big eater! The portions are large. The fried chicken plate is GREAT too. They serve breakfast,... More

Has moved from Festus Main Street to 920 Truman Blvd in Crystal City, just a mile or so away. Very busy place, especially with local folks. Good food at reasonable prices. Went for breakfast recently, but dinner and lunch are great too. Only complaint is that smokers are in the back of their large facility, but they are in the... More
