Friend invited me for lunch on Sunday to the Main Street Deli. Lovely boutique cafe located in Greytown. We both ordered from the cabinet thinking that this would be the quickest option to allow us to then wander the main street shops of Greytown. We sat at our table with our number clearly displayed, over the course of the next... More

Dropped in for brunch at this cafe-deli. Housed in a beautifully restored Victorian heritage building, the interior has a bright contemporary design. Deli wares are attractively displayed. An interesting and varied menu offers plenty of options for breakfast or lunch. Enjoyed our meal despite some confusion over our coffee order.

This is a smart refurbished cafe. The old cafe had lots of charm and not so much space whereas now they still have the charm and lots more space. It feels cleaner and crisper and the outdoor space at the back is a haven for children and adults alike. The food is a wide choice of the usuals and mains.... More

We ordered from the lunch menu - the variety on offer was so good that it was a challenge to make a decision. Finally settled on corn fritters with bacon and was very pleased. Smooth coffee, very friendly staff. Highly recommended

I had a business meeting here last week over lunch. Ordered the burger and it was bang on. Home made patty with heaps of flavour and perfectly cooked, served with fries and was just the right size for lunch. Good work team

We stopped in to Main Street Deli & Cafe for coffee and lunch on a nostalgic drive through the Wairarapa and enjoyed the ambience of the cafe. The service was quick, efficient and pleasant.
