Great whole, clean food and it's very tasty. Breakfast or lunch, you can always count on getting a very good made-from-scratch meal from Main Squeeze.

Always great and consistent food with a mind to buying the food where you eat it. Enjoyed the Ruby, Sunshine burger, lavender iced tea and curious George smoothy. Staff friendly and service fast for food made especially for you. ***. A true Columbia staple.
