Great food along with pleasant service. Glad I did not take the negative reviews to heart. Will surely go back. The website says they take reservations but they don't. They are open for breakfast and lunch only.

Cafe on Main has long been a local favourite for breakfast and lunch, and for good reason: the food is fresh and tasty, there's an extensive menu and always some interesting specials. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Service can sometimes be...More
