The Main Street Cafe offers a wide selection. They have breakfast, sandwiches and dinners, along with daily specials and soup. It appears to be a popular place with the locals.

Fried chicken, liver & onions (my favorite), mashed taters, veggies, salads, and lots more choices. Son goes every Friday for breakfast with friends. Breakfast available all day long. Highly recommend!

Love this place! It's a hole-in-the-wall as far a decor goes, but I don't eat decor so I don't mind. The food here is amazing and you better come hungry! LOTS of food, CHEAP prices, home cookin' at it's best. I grew up in Georgia and this food reminds me of home. LOVE IT!!!

Very popular place for the locals. I had the pork tenderloin sandwich and others had the Horseshoe 1/2 lb burger on texas toast covered with french fries and cheese. Everything was really good and prices were extremely reasonable.

The Main Street cafe is just that. Home town diner. Non smoking, clean, friendly staff. Reasonable prices, nice size servings and tasty dishes. Plenty of seating and parking. If you like old school style of diners you won't be disappointed.

I was here on a Saturday morning for breakfast. It was around 9am and the place was packed from the early birds, but was clearing out. The waitress was quick to take drink and food orders. The food came out quickly. I had French toast and bacon. They gave me a lot of bacon, which I could never be angry... More
