Homestead’s Main Street Cafe has returned after a two-year absence.
Some things changed and some not. Singer/songwriter Laurie Oudin is no longer the owner; there’s a new phone number: 305-242-4688; the stage has shrunk, presumably allowing for a larger dance floor; stage lights were replaced with DJ lights; there is no sound system for bands… Anyway, there’s food, bar, stage, live music, DJ, electronic games, TVs and outdoor pool table. No smoking indoors. Well-lit street parking up front and more parking in back.

Dining area and band stage. Bar is at left, beyond photo.
Unlike earlier days at Main Street Cafe, there are no stage lights and the house sound system is for the DJ only. Here we have keyboardist Ron Chassner, lit by his keyboard’s LCD display, with the band “Been There, Done That.”
This hall, left of stage, leads to the rear exit. It was briefly lit with fluorescents. The foreground door is for the DJ booth.
Stepping through the rear exit, there’s a pool table on the right.
