A fresh coat of paint on the sign, and paint on the Mother Road as well to highlight its midpoint. Plus a windmill in the background.

Route 66 Midpoint

Right off the interstate. The cafe was a walk back in time. Wonderful Route 66 gift shop and really good ugly pies. The owners were the friendliest people, full of tips and stories. Ask them how they came to own the cafe.

The cafe was empty when we arrived at lunchtime on a Thursday in July, but the service was fast and friendly, and the burger and lemon meringue pie were both delicious.
