If you want a quick homemade lunch, this is the place to get it. Two types of homemade soups and made to order sandwiches. Always great. Can't wait for the expansion to be done because sometimes it's hard to find an available table at lunch time.

Great soup and sandwiches! Always buy my Bothwell cheese at the deli because it's a little cheaper than other stores. Fresh baked breads, lots of homemade jams and other things.

Deli sandwiches and soups are delicious. A wide variety of breads and meats are available. The atmosphere is friendly. There is also a good selection of sausages, pies, cookies, and other treats for take home.

Very good sandwiches made while you wait!! Or while you're filling a bowl of their homemade soup and finding a table to sit. All the staff are super friendly! Oh hey you can also get lunch meat cut up to take home at their over the counter deli. Oh and I forgot their homemade bread loaves! Seriously unique and very... More

The breads and meats from the deli are always fresh and delicious. The friendly staff will hand cut, prepare, and hand wrap a sandwich to your exact specifications. A great small-town deli experience.

Stopped in to pick up a picnic lunch on our way through town. The cafe has a strange smell to it...possibly due to the deli? But there were lots of neat little things and the sandwiches they made us were extremely delicious! One issue we did have is there didn't seem to be a lot of provisions for allergies.

Well to start off with it smells like a bakery when you walk in. This cute place has awesome selections of meat and breads. Yes you pay for the toppings but again a good variety of cheeses and veggies. Can usually get in and out in half an hour.

Just moved to the are and really, I don't get it. You order at a meat /deli counter . Every single topping i.e.tomato is extra. The soup is a serve yourself. Lots of dirty tables. It was inexpensive but it will be my first and last. It is not a restaurant experience. The items for sale are grossly overpriced as... More

Main Bread & Butter is one of my favourite stops for both local and specialty grocery items. I love the selection of local cheeses, breads, jams, dairy products, pastas, pizzas and yummy bakery items. Whether you want a fresh sandwich made to your liking and a place to enjoy a lunch or just to stop in to purchase some yummy... More

The place is small but it does get busy with travellers and locals. We had soup and it was so flavourful every spoonful fresh tasting and the sandwiches so fresh and tasty very filling
