Main & Market Cafe is a place of true perfection.
A sit-down restaurant with that cozy cafe vibe, Main & Market has it all.
With wire tables (a la Italian street-dining) in one section, you could also elect to sit at the short countertop next to a glass display case of their homebaked goods. Muffin flavors change daily, and their cakes are tall with lots of layers and decadent frosting.
I sampled their coconut cake. A cake baker myself, I have a tendency to get picky about texture and frosting. If it's so sugary that your teeth hurt, it's too sweet! But at Main & Market, there wasn't a dry crumb in sight, and the frosting flavor was just right. Verdict: delicious!

But I'm getting ahead of myself by starting with dessert! I've been here for both lunch and breakfast, and I can tell you that both are fantastic.
The breakfast burrito is my favorite on the morning menu: it's flavorful without being too spicy. It's got all the morning essentials -- eggs and bacon -- and that chipotle pepper tortilla adds a lovely splash of color to the plate. The best part? This one comes with the hash browns, which are fried and crispy without tasting too fast-food-ish.

The lunch menu has a great variety. It's got the classic all-American offerings (like hamburger and fries), but also includes the local flavor with a crab cake sandwich. It even gets a little fancy with the entrees: you've got herb-crusted salmon or margarita pesce. Dinner is where things get really posh: you can indulge in meals from truffle filet to pistachio farfalle. Yum.
