Stopped in the Main Street Cafe with a friend after wandering around Jonesborough. It really is the only restaurant in town other than ice cream shops that serve sandwiches. As we stepped to the counter to order we were kind of greeted by the cashier. After ordering we found a seat and waited. A young man brought our food. Never... More

Burgers are okay, but on the salty side. French fries are only okay as well. Quiche was under cooked. I was disappointed in the broccali/ cranberry salad. Thought it would be amazing, but it wasn't. Coffee is served with milk, no half and half. Why??? Desserts, however, are always incredible with truly reasonable prices. Definitely worth stopping by for!

Food is consistently delicious. Soups, salads, sandwiches...it's all fantastic. Good Tea, along with regular soft drinks, are nice, but the really nice surprise is the selection of wines and craft brews. Outstanding desserts - highly recommend the coconut cream pie!!!

The food was good enough. The ambience was very nice. We were there in a slow Wednesday afternoon. Ken had the Mediterranean salad (he thought it was good) and I had they days special, Turkey-Brie panini. It was ok. Good enough. The bathrooms are small but nice. Place is clean. I would eat there again.

Attended a rehearsal dinner here and it was lovely. Lasagna, salad and veggies with dips were all excellent. Had a piece of carrot cake which was moist & delicious. The staff was friendly & on top of everything. Great space and great food! Cozy atmosphere on a historic Main Street.

Anytime we have guests in town we bring them here for lunch. We love the chicken salad. Their desserts look amazing! Don't miss out!

I went yesterday for lunch and it was wonderful! I got the Breezy sandwich and chips which was wonderful! My kids got a hot dog and they couldn't stop talking about how good it was. Such a great atmosphere and a great staff! I will definately be coming back. Thanks for such a great lunch.

I got the ham panini, fries and tea. The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was neat and staff was friendly. We had to walk up to the counters to ask for refills on our drinks, but besides that, everything else was great. Would suggest for anyone walking around downtown to stop in for a bite!

Maine Street Catering is a wonderful restaurant in downtown Jonesborough featuring great gourmet sandwiches soups, salads, and side dishes. They also do catering, as their name implies.
