Main Street Cafe

Main Street Cafe has offered home cooked meals for over 30 years in the heart of Old Town Lewisville!

From Yelp “So, visiting for thanksgiving, needing a breakfast place and decided on Main St Cafe. What a wonderful surprise! The restaurant is in a beautiful location, with a nice outdoor patio. Right next to downtown area. Our breakfasts were delicious. Plenty of food. Served hot and quickly. I ordered the pancake breakfast. Perfectly cooked eggs. My granddaughter ordered chicken n waffles, although more strips, had great flavor. And hubby ordered the corn beef hash with eggs and hash browns. He said it was great. The hash was not in chunks but diced and with potatoes. Great meal. Our server was very nice and checking on us. And the coffee was really good!”
