Rock Cafe - Route 66

Rock Cafe is such a fun place, in an otherwise run down town. The owner was not there when we went, but the people who were serving us were very friendly. The breakfast I had was excellent and a lot of food for a great price!

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.

Rock Cafe - Route 66

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.
