This cafe has been in Stillwater since before I was born in the early fifties. It is under new ownership which once owned a Greek resturant so you can get a good Gyro too. Breakfast and lunch.

The Main never disappoints. It's been around for more 25 years. I've mostly been here for breakfast but every once in awhile for lunch. It's right downtown Stillwater on Main Street. Parking is on-street. Sit at the counter or take a booth or table. Service is always with a smile and the food comes out quick and hot. Early bird... More

If your looking for ambience, this isn't your place but your looking for really good food ( and a lot if it) reasonable prices , and superb service, this is you place. Located right in Town... More

We ate here while we were staying in Stillwater 2 mornings in a row for breakfast! The food was good, try the pancakes or the sausage and gravy biscuits! The staff was fantastic and it was a cozy spot for coffee and a morning meal!

Love to support locally owned / family businesses and the Main Café’ makes it easy. Everyone is very friendly, the service is great, and the breakfasts are delicious. Lots of variety (not just standard offerings) as well. I even like the pancakes a lot, and I’m usually not a fan – too heavy – but theirs are lighter. Definitely recommend... More

We seated ourselves when we arrived for breakfast. There was only one waitress but she was attentive and came to our table almost right away. I ordered the apple french toast and when it arrived it didn't look like it had any apples. However, when I cut into the thick french toast, the batter was what had the apple in... More
