Our group of 16 beer drinkers arrived at Cafe on Main around 4PM on a Saturday. It was our first time visiting the restaurant and I was very impressed.

The atmosphere was comfortable. It definitely had a neighborhood bar kind of feel. Our server was very accommodating in helping us put tables together so that we could all sit together. In fact, the service was exceptional the entire time we were there. No one waited very long for a beer.

They had about 25 mostly American craft beers on tap. The best part was they were all $5. It was so much easier figuring out what everyone owed at the end of the evening! Some of the beers on tap while we were there were Lagunitas Doppleweizen, Southern Tier Krampus, Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, Brooklyn Lager and a good selection from New England breweries. They also had about 30 bottles that ranged from Lambic Frambois to Michelob Ultra. Dales Pale Ale in a can was only $3!

The food menu was limited and included all the typical bar foods. Again there was a $5 price with a variety of options.

Its a little out of the way for me, but if I'm in the area I will definitely stop in again.

This place is a real find, a valuable addition to a town already by a great bakery and great cheese. They've got at 26 beers on tap, including some oddities like Dogfish Head Black and Blue, a couple of TVs and lots of tables, friendly waitstaff, what more could you ask? There's a nice sense of community that goes with the brick walls and local event advertisements. If you stand by the back door, you can watch the sun go down.

I had a hambuger which was a like a little meat loaf. Not the best but certainly not the worst.
