We were back to check out the new, improved Main St. Diner under new ownership. We had heard that they were big into farmer's market food and fresh foods served in interesting ways. What a disappointment! It was the same fare as before. Some additions to the decor and a cleanup make it look promising upon entering. Their touted breakfast, outside their excellent home fries, is a couple of eggs with bacon and toast for $8.95, a bit high for canned, tired orange juice that anyone can buy from WalMart. The coffee has been upgraded from weak coffee to something that is approaching potability. (There's hope.) Their sweet potato pancakes were a legacy from the prior owners, which I believe the former owners could do better. What I was expecting: freshly squeezed orange juice, beautifully rolled omelets with distinctive fillings, wonderful pancakes with granola, almonds, bananas, blueberries, in fact, fresh fruit accompanying their breakfasts. I expected quiches of various sorts and cakes and assorted desserts other than tired old homemade brownies. And touting homemade as an adjective, what else should they be? FYI: you are allowed to buy fabulous stuff from cleverer bakers than yourself and resell those goodies, if you want.
This is a cleaned up version of what was there before. They should buy themselves a breakfast cookbook, read it from cover to cover, and start cooking and baking with abandon.
