Rock Cafe. The Rock Cafe

A small cafe in Stroud run by Dawn Welch. PIXAR chief John Lassiter said that Dawn was the inspiration for the movie "Cars." Well, at least the inspiration for Sally the Porsche in "Cars."

Best advice I have when visiting the Rock Cafe is to use the bathroom, and take a pen with you! This place is a must stop.

Classic restaurant. The character of Sally, in Disney's "Cars," was based on the owner [Dawn Welch].

[Rob Mincey, 06/14/2010]

The cafe dates back to 1936, built with rocks gathered from the construction of Route 66, and it has been restored and reopened a number of times. A fire in 2008 gutted most of the building, but it was completely restored by 2009.
