Cafe On The Route RE-OPENED
Katrina Evans says I stopped by for dinner on my Route 66 road trip recently. I had e-mailed them that I was going to have a meal with them and they actually e-mailed me back! Amy, the owner, came out and sat with me and we hit it off immediately. So nice! The waitress (sorry, I can't remember her name) was attentive and engaging. I loved the old building with its history. I chose the Chicken Azteca with Fried Potato Salad. Awesome! The flavors were like none I've ever had. As Guy would say, it was 'Crazy'! When I asked Amy where I could stay in town overnight, she said "Here...we have a Bed & Breakfast". I was so excited. She took me upstairs of this old 1900's building and the room was delightful...clean and had everything I needed. Amy and husband Richard have done a remarkable job of restoring this landmark building. The topper was the next morning...Richard prepared breakfast for me and what a feast it was!! Eggs cooked perfectly, ham, potatoes, fruit, roll, butter, juice and coffee...Unbelievable and delicious! I can only say I was completely overwhelmed by my entire experience and only wish I lived closer to Baxter Springs than I do. Amy and Richard, thank you for making my Route 66 adventure especially nice during my stop in Baxter Springs!!!
