$19 for a "chicken and cranberry" pie containing 4 pieces of meat and about half a kilogram of celery. Far too expensive, and bad quality food even at half the price. Good coffee but save yourself the time and get better food from a service station.

Great service and a broad menu. They have indoor seating, but they also have a lovely courtyard out the back where you can sit. I sat at a table in the courtyard and found it lovely and quiet and very relaxing. The food I had was yummy.

Overall, Main Street Deli is my choice for a stop when driving through Greytown en route to Welly or Martinborough. This recently refurbished cafe's food is always good and the garden ambience in good weather is a nice relief from being in the car. Give it a go and see for yourself!

Ended up ordering at the counter after 10 minutes wait. Then told was 30 minute wait which was OK and ended up being accurate. I had pie which was... More

Friend invited me for lunch on Sunday to the Main Street Deli. Lovely boutique cafe located in Greytown. We both ordered from the cabinet thinking that this would be the quickest option to allow us to then wander the main street shops of Greytown. We sat at our table with our number clearly displayed, over the course of the next... More

Dropped in for brunch at this cafe-deli. Housed in a beautifully restored Victorian heritage building, the interior has a bright contemporary design. Deli wares are attractively displayed. An interesting and varied menu offers plenty of options for breakfast or lunch. Enjoyed our meal despite some confusion over our coffee order.

This is a smart refurbished cafe. The old cafe had lots of charm and not so much space whereas now they still have the charm and lots more space. It feels cleaner and crisper and the outdoor space at the back is a haven for children and adults alike. The food is a wide choice of the usuals and mains.... More

Description
Afternoons spent sitting in the sun, drinking freshly roasted coffee, laughing with friends, and listening to the birds sing. this is the heart of greytown. this is the main st. deli. enjoy our fresh home baking, taste our salads crafted from fresh seasonal ingredients, sample a range of artisanal deli foods, and take home a jar of our signature homemade preserves. we've also expanded our deli and given our courtyard garden a gorgeous makeover. head outdoors to the quiet rear courtyard, sit amongst the maples and enjoy all the main st. deli has to offer.
