This is my favorite local restaurant!! Addicted to the Lobster rolls! Had them 3 days in a row. They are so large, split between 2 people. As the restaurant is small and busy, recommend ordering in advance for take-out. You won't be disappointed with any meal ordered!!

Cozy, small restaurant with great food. The seating is limited and not much privacy, but the food is deliciously homemade. Everything is tasty, when you finally get it. Worth waiting for!

Great food. Great service. Always welcome. Go early on weekends, before 8 am. Weekdays any time is great. Wonderful to eat outside and enjoy the view!

Best breakfast place on the south shore. The french toast and pancakes are excellent and my personal favorite is the Perfect Pair. It's a small place and service can be a little slow, so you may have to wait. But the food is worth it.

Serendipitously stumbled onto this quaint spot in Cohasset on our way to the arts fest in June. Small dining area, but part of charm. Friendly staff and very good food. Ordered the French toast and cinnamon bun French toast. Many breakfast choices. Although food slow to arrive, I suspect it's because everything is prepared fresh and to order. Worth the... More

My wife and I enjoy "5 South Main" and frequently stop in for lunch when we are in the area. It is very small so "nook" seems to be the right description. Good service by friendly people who seem glad that you stopped. Quality is very good and consistent. I believe travelers on Boston's south shore would enjoy the visit.

Thank chibuls
