Not a huge range of things to eat, but good spot. Mostly outdoors though, and some shelter in case it rains. Has nice sandwiches, and also serves beer. Quite relaxing.

One of the very few actual places along the Main. Great place during some warm summer days with beer and lemonades.

This café is a great place, where you can have the classics drinks (wine, beer, softs,...). Prefer sunny days to enjoy fully the place, and get a transat to appreciate the view and the calm of the place.

I love to spend summer afterwork evenings at Main Cafe. You can sit on the grass or take a chair (free, 10 euro deposit) and enjoy the sun until the very last second. Most people would drink beer or Apfelwein, but they also have some...More
