I was one that banged the drum for this place. Now the drum has gone silent. The last 4 times here its been a disappointment. Today was the last straw. We arrived late morning about 10:00. Had a 5 minute wait to be seated. While waiting we watched a bus boy cleaning tables. He was using the same rag to... More

My husband and I do try to visit here at least once a month for breakfast. The place is very simple, no frills here. Large room with many tables. Servers are on their toes, very good teamwork. Food is good home style breakfast foods. The fried potatoes are usually very good as well. Always a fresh cup of coffee. Cudos... More

If you are looking for a fancy place you may not want to eat here. If you go to Main Street because you want great food with large portions at reasonable prices, you do want to eat here. Service has always been excellent and fast. Highly recommend.

Had a fun family breakfast with my brothers while visiting Festus last October. The breakfast was fast, hot, and yummy. The server was friendly and full of information.

We had gone here before and went to have breakfast again. The price is reasonable and you get a lot of food. Has a very community Vibe. Everyone knows each other. Always a great stop while on vacation. Waitress was friendly and food was quick.

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
