The moment you walk in to The Main Cup, you're greeted with an aromatic smell of fresh coffee...duh!!! It's a coffee shop. It's not your regular cup, this place has great charm. The Old Main Street Ice cream shop was renovated by the Brenengen's prior to their opening on March 28th. The renovation not only preserved some of the old "ice box" doors, but added modern appeal. Look closely at the art work on the wall; it was created by local artist Kesra Hoffman. Yes, it's available for purchase. The shop has numerous tables and over stuffed furniture to settled down with some friends and chat about local events or just plain gossip. Play some checkers in the back or some backgammon.
Soups, Snacks and Salads! If you are eating light, you have plenty of choices for salads; Moroccan Lemon Chicken Salad (this sounds good just saying the name.) Caesar, Spinach, house and another interesting one, Grilled Romaine Wedge.
Sandwiches anyone? Not only are you tempted by the display case full of fresh bakery goods, but you have an arsenal of freshly made sandwiches to choose from over lunch or dinner. Where else can you get a Grilled Mahi Mahi on a challah roll? Of course there are traditional favorites like Cheeseburgers, Grilled Rubens, and of course, Crab Cake sandwiches. One of the local patrons, Christine Preston had this to say about Todd's Steak and Cheese, "It had lots of Flavor!"
I can't wait to get back and try out the food... I just couldn't see eating a Crab Cake sandwich at 9:30 in the morning..The caffine hasn't even kicked in yet!!! See you at The Main Cup.
