Main Street Cafe has changed, and is now Mama K's Diner. It is '50s themed, with lots of memorabilia. They have breakfast and lunch (until 3), and the food is great. Service was excellent as well. I highly recommend it!

The food is not as good as use to be and the service was poor! It is like there is no pride in the place anymore!

CZ: Po otřesné "kontinentální snídani" v jednom hotelu ve Visalii, jsme se rozhodli pro plnohodnotnou snídani a navštívili toto příjemné místo v typicky americkém stylu. Tak jak je USA zvykem se nám po celou dobu věnovalo příjemná obsluha. Naše objednané sandwiche i vaječná omeleta byly opravdu výborné. We visited this restaurant after horrible continental breakfast in nearby hotel. The staff... More

This place had a change of ownershio and is now called Mama K's Diner. It has a 50s look with white & red checkered decor. The breakfast food was delicious! Ingenious to combine waffles with sliced bananas, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream.

Love their breakfasts, very good food. Very small location and parking can be difficult. But when you leave you smell like grease even is you didn't have fried food!

Been twice, both times had great burgers. Chocolate malt was incredible. Pretty busy but service was top notch also. Will be our go to place for a good burger and fries. Love the decor and music. Not many places with a juke box anymore.

We went here to have a Sunday morning breakfast, as it was walking distance from our hotel. There are not many restaurants open on Sundays in downtown, so by default we ended up here. What luck! Food is reasonably priced and with generous portions. I had the stuffed biscuit, and it was delicious. Service was fast and friendly. Would make... More

Huge portions of fantastic, home style cooking. Make sure you try the hash brown casserole - it's that good! Everything is fresh, the biscuits are fantastic, the jams are homemade. Just GO.
