Main Street Cafe & Catering

Welcome Back!

When Greg and I visit historic Jonesborough, Tennessee's oldest town, we often enjoy having lunch at one of our favorite places, Main Street Cafe & Catering which is owned by Herman and Beverly Jenkins.  A great description of the cafe comes from the Main Street menu, and I quote, "Located in the old 1930's United States Post Office building with its original pressed-tin ceiling, hanging globe lamps, and hardwood flooring,  Main Street Cafe offers to you indoor and outdoor seating for an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere full of the charm Jonesborough is known for."

Their varied and extensive menu includes homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, quiche, a large array of desserts, and fresh ground coffee.  Also, they serve freshly-brewed beer from the local Depot Street Brewing Co.  In addition, Main Street Cafe sells wine by the glass.  Be sure to check out their daily specials.

Greg and I visited Main Street Cafe just a couple of weeks ago.  Although we love the cozy indoor dining area, we decided to dine outside since it was such a warm, pretty day.  After we'd placed our order inside,  we went outside to our table on the front patio to enjoy the sights and sounds of Jonesborough while waiting for our food to arrive. Soon, the waiter brought our meal.  (He was friendly and helpful, as were the other members of the staff that we encountered.)  Greg enjoyed a bacon cheddar burger and French fries, while I ate a large "garden delight" salad (with several ingredients, including sunflower seeds and raisins) and delicious loaded potato soup.

Besides being a cafe, Main Street has both on and off premise catering.  They have a reception/banquet facility, "Old Quarters," in their "rustic elegant 1890's building overlooking...Jonesborough."  They cater weddings/receptions, private parties, dinners, special occasions, and business meetings which can include flowers and decor.

Be sure to see their impressive website for more details, including excellent photographs of weddings and parties that they have catered, etc.  Also, there is an elegant wedding album on display at the cafe that you're sure to enjoy.

Final thought: When you visit Jonesborough, be sure to visit Main Street Cafe & Catering.  You'll be glad you did!
