“halfway through Route 66!”
We are located at the traditionally accepted halfway point of Historic Route 66, the midpoint between Chicago and Santa Monica. Accross the street from the cafe is the "Welcome To The Midpoint" sign, one of the top photographed signs along Route 66. We are also the ONLY place on Route 66 to get Midpoint RT66 Gifts and Souvenirs, so please stop in and see our gift shop inside the cafe. We have been told by many visitors that the MidPoint Cafe and Gift Shop is one of the best gift shops along all of Route 66. So see for yourself!!! Home of the MidPoint "Ugly" Pies! Completely homemade and one of the best pie crusts you'll ever taste. We try to have at least six (6) different flavored pies available each day, from fruit pies like apple, peach, or cherry, to our cream pies, including coconut, chocolate, and peanut butter/chocolate cream. We also do a fanatstic and delicious "Texas Pecan" pie, and our house specialty, a chocolate chip and pecan pie which when warmed, tastes like a large chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven. So stop by and try a slice! Maybe top it off with a scoop of vanilla bean ice ice cream...YUMMY!!! We are also known for our all fresh delicious burgers, that even the local ranchers keep coming back to feast on!!! Always fresh, never frozen patties of Angus Beef. But remember, we are located in Texas, so our portions are big, like everything is in Texas!!! We are also open for breakfast.
Great stop for pie, sign your name on an old car and talk to the locals about the route/travel etc. An added bonus if you have Disney "cars" enthusiasts in your family is that they sell some rarer cars there plus have some info about the influences to the movie (and some memorabilia signed by those influences). Stop here!
We stopped and took a picture in the middle of the road by the midpoint sign. We also stopped in the cafe and had a few pieces of pie. My kids really loved the pie, because I only got one bite! Should have taken a piece of pie to go for myself... will know for next time!
Fantastic place to stop for a great experience on Route 66 ...breakfast & yummy lunch options and cool memorabilia
Say hi from Joel! This place and culture/employee's is the best! Exactly what Route 66 is all about!
There's not a lot of Route 66 in Texas, so don't let the opportunity to stop at one pass you by... Go here! The folks are friendly and the food is good. Sign the old truck!
Great food and fun atmosphere. Worth a stop!
Stumbled upon the Midpoint Cafe during our journey from Chicago to Phoenix. What a great find! We had a delicious lunch, sampled multiple pies and a great photo opp. All in all a fantastic treasure along Route 66.
One of the best stops along Route 66, super nice people, great pie! Also have an old truck and old car that you can write on, kids loved it.
This was one of my favorite Route 66 road trip stops! Cute little place; great food and decor! Also, they sell a cookbook full of their pie recipes, along with other Route 66 memorabilia. Just make sure you check the hours before making the trek!
I originally had this on the list of places to stop because I wanted pictures with the signs. Turns out, it exceeded my expectations. We ended up getting breakfast which was fantastic, and while we waited for our food we looked inside the gift shop and really got to look at all the cool stuff that they have collected inside. There is a truck outside you can write on so don't forget a sharpie! We took pictures with all of the cars and across the street there is a "Midpoint" sign. It's off of a road that is not busy at all so you don't have to worry about crossing the street. It is such a quaint and perfect little place hidden away. I so recommend this as a stop!
