Just a hop, skip and jump away from our Dixie State University campus is the oh-so-chic and delectable TwentyFive Main.
Owners and brothers Adam and Jason Legg have lived in St. George for over 20 years and bought this little whole in the wall back in 2013 with their goal being to provide a place to celebrate food, family friends and art.
Whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner this cafe offers a menu where everything is made from scratch.
As you enter the cafe you are welcomed by the fresh teal and brown prints detailed within each booth seat along with various teal accents around the cafe; the beautiful rustic corner piano and glistening chandeliers really ties it all in.
“I cannot speak much to where the inspiration was derived,” said general manager Jason Legg when discussing the chic-decor of TwentyFive Main. “…The original owners wanted to create a unique atmosphere. The style was eccentric and one of a kind.”
Both Jason and his brother Adam do their best to preserve and sometimes enhance the atmosphere simply by making a few changes to the cafe intact.
With only seven years of experience, TwentyFive Main has served well over 10,000 customers using their selection of 75 dishes.
St. George local and TwentyFive Main employee Jamie Garcia has been working for this establishment for eight months and said it’s the little things that truly makes the cafe shine.
“The scenery, aesthetic of the place and the old fashion feel is really cool,” Garcia said.
Garcia isn’t the only one who admires TwentyFive Main for its adorable chic look.
“It’s a cute little place located in a historic spot [of St. George] and it has a relaxed atmosphere,” local customer Kay Ross said.
Although, like Ross, TwentyFive Main paninis are my favorite, this time around I decided to try the Penne Primavera.
After a short wait, out came a pasta plate filled with red peppers, red onions, pancetta and steamed broccoli covered in Alfredo sauce.
At the perfect temperature I was able to indulge myself in a rich pasta dinner with a nice slice of bread on the side. This full plate of pasta was the exact thing I needed — it hit the spot.
Jason said TwentyFive Main offers a full espresso bar complete with everything from lattes to cappuccinos.
So, if you are in search of some local caffeine, be sure to try TwentyFive Main’s bottomless coffee.
In one Yelp review a self-proclaimed New Orleans foodie wrote “This is where you want to eat #happystomachs.”
During my visit I recognized the various groups in attendance, from old and middle-aged to young and hip. Twenty-five Main offers an atmosphere that is inviting to all. I even noticed a group of young adults playing card games at a corner table.
Now if you have a sweet tooth, like I do, then you’ll be most delighted to find that this cafe specializes in cupcake confectionaries, the most popular being the carrot cake, Garcia said.
In college, frugality is key, so be sure to look for Twenty-five Main during Georgefest to score some insanely good cupcakes for only a $1 opposed to their regular price of $2.25.
“Don’t you dare stop here without getting a cupcake,” another Yelp reviewer said.
