The Main Cup is located in Historic Downtown Middletown, Maryland. Its name is derived from the building's history, which began more than 100 years ago, when C.F. Main began making and selling ice cream here.
Main's Ice Cream and Butcher Shop became a renowned Maryland institution as the business grew regionally. Presidents and state officials were known to stop at Main's on their way to Shangri-La, now known as Camp David. Ice cream was last churned here in 1969, and the Main family subsequently sold the factory.
The Main Cup is proud to be the new owner of this historic landmark once again serving the community and establishing itself as Middletown's gathering place. With our humble beginning as a coffeehouse in the spring of 2007, in just one year we became a full-service restaurant offering patrons some of the best made-to-order casual gourmet fare in Frederick County.
Tantalizing salads, homemade soups, crab cakes, and evening plated fare can all be complimented with cocktails from our full bar. Visit our newly renovated and expanded dining areas.
We have free wireless Internet in three separate seating areas, and also on our patio. Come and experience our great coffee, delicious food, and glorious history. You're sure to enjoy this unique dining experience.
