This local eatery is quaint, eclectic, and conscientious. The dishes are straightforward yet flavorful, like the wood-fired romanesco with garlic confit, rabbit leg with rabbit confit, Swiss chard, and saffron aioli, or the fried pigs chili cheese fries—OK, perhaps not so straightforward. The ricotta gnocchi and tagliatelle are house-made and mixed with fresh, local ingredients. Perhaps the best feature of this epicurean menagerie is the onsite garden from which any ingredient with the word "garden" next to it comes from. The Main Street Garden & Café talks the talk of sustainable food and delivers it in each unique dish.
