I don't usually like donuts but will go out of my way for these handmade delights! Their breakfast is also outstanding

The hardest part about eating at Main Street is having to see all of the unbelievable baked goods while standing in line to order. Great omlettes.

This is another case of someone from up north coming here and telling us how we like our food. I do not care how you did it back there. If I wanted that I would go to a Jewish Deli. It is so close we want it to be as good as we had heard. We were very disappointed. There... More

We were passing through Wake Forest and decided to find some place for a quick lunch. Our GPS listed the Main Street Grille Cafe & Bakery. It was not far off I-75 so we decided to go there. It is a quaint, small cafe with a certain charm but not particularly friendly. We were there on Saturday and the place... More

We have had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here, and we have enjoyed them all! Plus, their bakery comes up with some of the most delicious pastries you can find anywhere! AND, their staff are friendly and helpful. It's like going back in time to good home cooking, in a casual, relaxed setting, with friends who welcome you warmly into their... More

While visiting family several years ago over the Christmas holiday I wanted to bring a very special dessert for the family. I called Tom Halik and asked him if he would make English Trifle for me, every though it was not one of his desserts. He did, and it was delicious. I always order my pastries via telephone from California... More

Was in town for a hockey tournament and looking for somewhere to have breakfast between games. Stopped at a gas station to fill up and saw this place. Decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. The Southwestern Breakfast Wrap was very good and flavorful! Everyone there looked like they were really enjoying their meals, as well. Service...

Although the menu isn't extensive here, and it is a little on the pricey side, that is what one would expect of a hotel restaurant. It was nice to be able to get a meal late at night, and I ordered a burger and fries which I was willing to be pretty basic but I was pleasantly surprised by the... More

We were just looking for quick breakfast before kid sporting event on a Saturday. We were absolutely impressed with the food and baked goods and homey feel of the place. The buttermilk covered donut was DEVINE. We both had eggs, sausage, grits and biscuit. Fabulous! Really simple food done perfectly. Very friendly staff. We ended up buying 3 dozen donuts... More

Excellent food and pastries in a casual setting. Eat in or take out. We went Sunday after church. Some wait but it was worth it.
