All of Ed's recipes are delicious! From the catering to the private chef's table dining experience, every course prepared is excellent. I recommend either service, but the dining is especially nice b/c a small party can watch the food get cooked and carry on casual conversation with the chef and his assistant. Definitely worth the experience!

Ed Pickens always provides very good tasting food, whether at his Care on Main or his bistro (I [Tom] think you'd call it that) in the Barrington One Building (if he's still there) or at meetings or at our wedding reception, which he catered. When we go to a function here in Mansfield and taste the food, and it's the... More

I went to a Xmas party catered by Cafe Main. The food was awesome. Everything was top quality and fresh. It was a buffet, but the salads were my favorite.

I had the best burger that I have had since I arrived in this town! Also, the onion rings are to die for!

Hired them to cater my daughters wedding. They cancelled a week before, actually according to their dated letter, they planned to cancel before that, just didn't bother to tell me until Saturday afternoon leaving me with 5 days to find other catering. Letter said to contact them if I had questions. They have not returned a call or email since.

Having been invited to an 'appreciation' luncheon, this was a great opportunity to taste what Café on Main had to offer. Deliciousness!! Tasty, fresh salad with garlic Parmesan dressing was my choice. Great dinner rolls with real butter. Roasted vegies, oven-baked potato slices, vegie lasagna, and chicken with mushrooms were offered - I had to try them all, and my... More

So many choices! Build your own combos, delicious sweet treats, and discounted "boxed" lunches from previous day to take back to work and heat up. Soups and sandwiches can't be beat for quick lunch.

Closed to public. They only do catering now. To bad good places cannot stay in business. I like the food but some dishes were too salty. Loved the squash, apple & bacon soup.
