Stopped by at lunch after reading about this restaurant. After reading the reviews, it sounded right. Walked in and saw the brick pizza oven, the eclectic decor, the interesting menu (including local, small batch soft drinks). Should have been a no-brainer. Started with the vegetable soup. Texture and temperature was spot-on but it was as bland as a hospital meal.... More

This is the place for delicious artisan pizza in a relaxed atmosphere with interesting tables, seating, dinnerware and artwork. Great convenient location to grab a bite before or after attending a movie at the nearby cinema.

The four of us enjoyed two great pizzas. Super table service highlighted the visit. We had egg plant pizza. Thin crust , flavorful and very delicious. The beer was great too. Nice IPA. Will be back.

Eclectic décor. Fabulous brick oven pizza. Attentive service. Located in Railroad Square Plaza with plenty of parking. Not chain pizza. Best pizza in Waterville.

I love pizza and I love the brick oven pizza at Grand Central Cafe best of all. I miss the all-you-can-eat buffet. I probably ate it out of existence.

Every time I go to the Railroad Square Indie Cinema, I first have to have the Greek (Athena) Pizza at Grand Central Cafe. This cozy cafe's atmosphere has a hip, fun vibe that makes me feel like I am in a bigger city. Decorated in eclectic modern art, I look forward to viewing an Independent film by relaxing here first,... More

The pizza here is awesome. The staff is extremely accommodating when it comes to a group asking for yet another dish of bread and dipping sauce! Other dishes are equally as good including the quesadillas.

We had lunch there twice. The service was excellent and the food was fresh and delicious. The outdoor dining area is a bonus on a nice day.

Grand Central Cafe is, hands down, our favorite pizza place in the greater Waterville area. We used to frequent it often before we moved out of state, and now it is one of our first stops when we go back to Waterville for visits. Exceptional brick oven pizza. My personal favorite is the Dammit Janet pizza, and my husband always... More
