The Market has a rare combination of counter service, hometown breakfasts , and fresh ingredients. When visiting Lynchburg, I make sure to have the Market as my breakfast destination.

I went to Market at Main and tried the Eggs Benedict and they were awesome. The service was also impeccable. $9.99 with red roasted potatoes.

Market at Main (MaM per the Tshirts) has become one of our "Go To" restaurants when we don't have a particular reason to go somewhere else. There's a large variety of dishes to try that we haven't had time to try yet. One of my favorites is the "Eggs Chesapeake", made like Eggs Benedict but with a crab cake in... More

Place was jumping at 11:15, told a 20 min wait for four and that was pretty spot on. It was a beautiful day, so we waited outside,... More
