“Downtown Baby........”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

If you're looking for that back home downtown cafe feel, this is the place. Usually busy for breakfast but they greet you and get you seated quick. A good menu selection for everyone and the food and service is great. I always complain about pricing being high but the Mainstreet Restaurant is cheaper than your chain places and certainly remains a local hot spot. I had an omlete with pancakes and bacon and it was great. My friends had various breakfast meals which they enjoyed. Other than Pekins and the fast food dives there isn't much else for a good breakfast in town. Everything tasted freash and made from scratch.

“a typical home town cafe!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I had a childhood favorite and it lived up to my expectations! A hot roast beef sandwich with real mashed potatoes, tasty gravy, and corn (probably from a can). The "senior" portion was BIG! I'm glad a qualified for the discount! The pies looked amazing, but we were just too full to try. Our waitress was funny, attentive and service oriented. We will go back when we're in DL visiting family again!
