On the Square of Mansfield, Walking distance from Carrousel District, Holiday Inn downtown businesses. Open for lunch. Great great salads with gourmet homemade dressings. Large soup and sandwich menu too. Experienced Owner/Operator/Chef is hands on which assures consistent high quality service. If you like what you eat, you may have it catered. Banquet rooms available too. Try it, I'm sure... More

I've been to Ed Pickens' Cafe several times for lunch. They always have creative sandwiches and fresh fruit and vegetables. I've never tried the soup, but I don't doubt that it's good. The space is beautiful. Having hired them for an offsite party, I can say that everyone was impressed by the quality of the food, the excellent service, and... More

I met my friend & her 3 month old son there for lunch and glad we went there. It was very reasonably priced with great food. The staff was very friendly. Atmosphere is clean and casual. We had the portabella sandwich with potato soup and they both were very good! Also another kid factor is there is the indoor merry-go-round... More

This is a great place for lunch. Very popular though, so it gets very busy around Noon. Beat the crowd by going at 11:30. Fresh salads, sandwiches, daily lunch specials, etc.

We use Cafe on Main for the majority of our business meetings. The food is always excellent, delivery is prompt and friendly. We also held our wedding reception here and couldn't have been more pleased! Great atmosphere for both casual and elegant parties.

Very good sandwiches in the cafe or to go. The generous white bag (weekday lunch) special can be habit-forming, with a salad and cookie to go with your sandwich.

This is a superb choice if you are tired of the fast food thing and are looking for local flavor. They've got a large variety of sandwiches. I wished my appetite was larger as there were so many I wanted to try. I had the Barrington Bomber and my wife had the Chicken Salad sandwich - both excellent. Service was... More

They catered our work Christmas Party and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Served hot , very distinct flavors, beautiful presentation, nice selection, would reccommend to anyone wanting to not do the cooking themselfs, they handled everything from start to finish!

The food was good, the location is perfect. I went here on a whim, aka a recommendation from some employees at the local office i was working at that day. The food was actually rather good. I ordered 2 sandwiches, I was hungry!.... When i go back to this office, i make sure to eat here for lunch
