Reservations were made and tables were set up for us, a group of about 25 people. We made our orders at the counter, and service was prompt. The food was fresh and delicious. There were no complaints.

We go here for lunch every few weeks or so. Their sandwiches are excellent, provided from a imaginative and changing menu -- healthy, tasty, satisfying. Coming with a large group?

Love the service, food, drinks, place, everything!!! One of my favorite places in altavista. You should most definitely stop by here. I just wish they were open more on Saturday so people could experience this place that work during the week. The coffee here ranks next to star bucks people!!!

Go for coffee and cookies anytime, and every visit you're greeted with smiles, super friendly service, delicious food and THE BEST COFFEE EVER.

The Cafe has taken off as a local gathering place in town. Wonderful coffees (staff has had barista training) and delicious sandwiches and snack items. Don't miss the scrumptious harvest cookies!

This cafe is first class from the food to the service. They make the best Reuben that I've ever had! I definitely recommend Main Street Cafe for high quality yummy food.

I got the quesadilla. It wasn't the worst I've ever had but it wasn't the best. It was bland and I wouldn't order it again. I'd be willing to try something else there
