I go for breakfast occasionally and it is very consistent. It's a great place to meet for business because there is no wait staff and they don't care if you chat for a while. The sandwiches are better than the breakfast and the pastries are phenomenal. There are many other locations nearby for great breakfasts but it's good.

Good Luck deciding what pastry, cookie, muffin or goodie you want! Breakfast is really good as well. Not fancy but great food! Plan to wait in line to order for weekend breakfast. Never been for lunch but the sandwiches look great and I know the bread will be good!

This is my go to restaurant around Wake Forest. The food is great. The ladies behind the counter do a good job. The baked goods are divine. I'm not sure that there are any real criticisms. If I really think about it, I honestly don't like to stand in line to get food, but here it is not such a... More

I've visited Main Street Grille twice now, I feel that's enough to give a fair review. I will admit that I like the style- order at counter and then food brought out to you. The baked goods have been very good, we've gotten a few things to share each time we have been. The only exception was the scone- it... More

We have been coming here for quite some time, usually for breakfast, occasionally for lunch if my husband is working from home. Every thing is top notch, my favorite breakfast is the huevos rancheros. What ever you do, make sure you take some donuts to go. The best in the area.

The staff was very gracious and the food was very good. I did not get any of the baked good but did they look good.

A friend and I tried this restaurant for the first time. I had the cobb salad and he had a tuna melt and a bowl of chili. All of the food was tasty and had a great presentation. Everything was fresh. You order and pay first and they bring your order to the table. They also had a display of... More

My husband and I decided to give Main Street Grille Cafe & Bakery a try for dinner on a Friday evening. They had a prime rib special for $14.95. $14.95 for prime rib??? That's unheard of! We both chose the prime rib special and boy was it great! The prime rib was so large it nearly covered the entire plate!... More

Found this little place quite by accident. Went in to check out the bakery and left with a bag full of pastries. Spoke to one of the women behind the bakery counter and was told that they serve breakfast everyday until 4:00pm..My husband and I are always up for a good breakfast, so when company came the following weekend we...
