The restaurant is at the front of a motel. The ambience is, well, OK but nothing special. It goes without saying but I will say it anyway: this is Nova Scotia, stick with the seafood (which we did). The starter of seafood chowder was excellent....More

Tried out this restaurant as it was right beside our hotel, the Maritime Inn in Antigonish. The meal was very good at a very reasonable price. Service was very good as well. Liked it well enough that we went back a second time.

Restaurant opens st 7 with full menu. Service is excellent. We ordered bacon, one egg and home fries, no toast. We were charged for the breakfast special minus charges for one egg and toast. Wow. Very good deal and good tasting.

The menu offered a decent range of options and the service was efficient and prompt. It's located in a modern hotel so lacks distinctive ambiance.

I had the house white wine, battered fish with baked potato and the brownie dessert. Excellent meal and the best baked potato I have had in recent memory. Service was flawless and we were in a rather large group of people. Love Main Street Cafe!

Average place with average food. Good menu choices and something for everyone. Reasonable prices. Ok wait staff. Good off street parking. It was good but not one of the places I will remember a year from now.
