If the walls could talk there would be plenty to tell about the home of Main Street Cafe and Bakery.
The building at 15 South Main Street has been a dining establishment of one kind or another for most of its existence. More than one "Pigeonite" enjoyed a home-style meal in one of the booths that ran along the north wall. While others enjoyed a burger and a shell of beer at the bar on the south side.
Over the years, taverns of several names offered food and entertainment their guests.
For many years, there was a bowling alley on the second story, where a few teenagers ran from lane to lane as they handset the pins for the next frame.
During the 1960s and 70s, June and Fargos (as it was named) would be packed with a lunchtime crowd as well as Friday and Saturday nights.
In the early 80s, the bar was sold and renamed JuDen's Duck Inn until it closed several years later.
With the help of the Pigeon EDC, the building was remodeled and put back into use as a Brink's Bakery and Coffee Shop until it closed on September 24, 1989.
Seeing a need for more dining options in Pigeon, brothers Ed and Neal Eichler purchased the business and on November 30, 1989, Main Street Cafe served its first meal.
Since that day in November, Main Street has been a place where friends and family stop by for a cup of coffee, a great breakfast, lunch specials or an evening family dinner.
Main Street Cafe... where you're a friend of the family.
