A pleasant place to relax after a day sightseeing and shopping. We were full of food already but enjoyed the iced chocolate drinks and good coffee.

Visited for lunch with my mother and 2 local ladies who highly recommended this place. We were not dissappointed. Lovely cabinet food and lunch menu. Lots of friendly staff buzzing around. Really enjoyed our lunch, will be back.

$19 for a "chicken and cranberry" pie containing 4 pieces of meat and about half a kilogram of celery. Far too expensive, and bad quality food even at half the price. Good coffee but save yourself the time and get better food from a service station.

Great service and a broad menu. They have indoor seating, but they also have a lovely courtyard out the back where you can sit. I sat at a table in the courtyard and found it lovely and quiet and very relaxing. The food I had was yummy.

Overall, Main Street Deli is my choice for a stop when driving through Greytown en route to Welly or Martinborough. This recently refurbished cafe's food is always good and the garden ambience in good weather is a nice relief from being in the car. Give it a go and see for yourself!

Friend invited me for lunch on Sunday to the Main Street Deli. Lovely boutique cafe located in Greytown. We both ordered from the cabinet thinking that this would be the quickest option to allow us to then wander the main street shops of Greytown. We sat at our table with our number clearly displayed, over the course of the next... More

Afternoons spent sitting in the sun, drinking freshly roasted coffee, laughing with friends, and listening to the birds sing. this is the heart of greytown. this is the main st. deli. enjoy our fresh home baking, taste our salads crafted from fresh seasonal ingredients, sample a range of artisanal deli foods, and take home a jar of our signature homemade preserves. we've also expanded our deli and given our courtyard garden a gorgeous makeover. head outdoors to the quiet rear courtyard, sit amongst the maples and enjoy all the main st. deli has to offer.
