Get Awesome Drinks, Delicious Food and Unbeatable Service at Our Long-Established Bar in Plainville, CT

From our front door on Whiting Street to the patio outside the back door, you can count on great service from the bartenders, wait staff, and kitchen staff at the Central Cafe in downtown Plainville. We've been doing it since 1950.

Here are some other reasons why our customers keep coming back: We have 12 beers on tap. Our menu is complete with everything from appetizers to entrees. We have a private room for banquets. There are 14 big screen HD TV's and we carry all NFL games. We have pool tables and run beer pong games. We even have a great night life and invite you to check out our calendar.

The Central Cafe has comfortable tables and chairs in addition to plenty of bar stools. We also have a patio with picnic tables for you to enjoy during the late spring through early fall.
