Before you set off to explore downtown Abbeville, start your morning at Main Street Coffee. You’ll be greeted by friendly and knowledgeable employees at the counter to take your order. This quaint coffee shop has a large breakfast menu with customer favorites, lighter options, healthy choices and add-ons for just a little something extra. If you’re stopping in for lunch, you can take your pick from sandwiches, wraps, salads and unique sides. It’s the recommended place for anyone needing a quiet little spot to grab a cup of good-tasting coffee.

Don’t expect anything fancy at the Rough House — except for the best hot dogs in town. An Abbeville landmark since 1930, it oozes charm with weathered wooden floors and small booths in the seating area. For those looking to pass a little time, there’s a pool hall in the back. Old, baseball-themed photos cover the walls and its rough feel creates a unique atmosphere. Rather than posting the restaurant's offerings on a menu, they're listed on a large chalkboard hanging over the entrance to the pool hall. The limited fare includes hot dogs “all the way” with chili and onions or “sad” with nothing but a weenie and bun. Brace yourself, as your first bite of dog will instantly transport you back to your childhood. Leave room for ice cream because no meal is complete without something sweet!

Feeling the need to satisfy your barbecue cravings? Talk of the Town Eatery & Catering is the place for your classic meat and threes. You’ll find everything from sandwiches to salads in a country living atmosphere. Daily specials are refreshed regularly with new, unique options offered. If you’re looking for take-home meals, don’t miss the pints of items like chicken salad, barbecue, potato salad, slaw and green beans.

Yoder’s Dutch Kitchen has been featured on "Man vs. Food" and "101 Tastiest Places to Chow Down." The family-oriented establishment specializes in traditional Dutch Amish delicacies like award-winning pies, home-cooked meals and delicious baked goods. Amish comfort food is served in an atmosphere of smiles. It’s simply delicious!

Dining at Village Grill is a must when traveling to Abbeville. This casual restaurant serves an array of freshly prepared fine foods, including rotisserie chicken, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, ribs, seafood, pastas and aged beef. Village Grill also offers weekly specials, fine wines and homemade desserts. The owners take great pride in supporting local farmers and maintaining a sustainable environment by using recycled paper for menus and to-go containers.
