Hendersonville’s newest taste adventure is Café 393 on Main. This locally owned restaurant opened their doors on February 12 of this year in the Hazel Path Commons at 393 W. Main St.
Owner Tanya McPherson and her mom Nadine Simons have been exploring the idea of opening a restaurant in Hendersonville for several years.
McPherson’s father has had a very successful mom and pop restaurant in Heartland, Wisconsin for 25 years.
“Every time my dad and stepmother come here to visit, they always tell me you need a place like ours back home” McPherson said. “They have been a staple in our community back home for several years.”
McPherson and Simons have modeled their café after the Hartbrook Café which has been the local gathering place back home.
“We want this to be a gathering place for local people to come in and enjoy a good meal,” McPherson said.
In the mornings, they serve anything from biscuits and gravy, made to order omelets, French toast, and eggs benedict, just to name a few.
“We do eggs benedict very well,” McPherson said.
For lunch they serve burgers, a variety of salads, a daily soup, and each Friday, they have a fish fry that attracts a large crowd.
“People love our patty melts,” McPherson said. “Everything is good because of the food quality that we have and that makes a difference. We chop our potatoes every day and our vegetables are fresh daily.”
They also bake daily a variety of homemade pies and muffins from scratch each day.
Café 393 on Main is open Tuesday-Sunday from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
