Oct 10, 2021..A friend and I enjoy planning day biking trips on the Katy and Rock Island trails. Most of our bike trips include lunch and a couple of hours of biking. We try to meet at a location that is equidistance from our homes, especially if we are both working the next day.

Our most recent trip was to Marthasville and included lunch. I selected KT Caboose for lunch due to it's proximity to the trail and the online reviews were great for the resteraunt. I ordered the smoothie while waiting on my friend. Later, when my friend arrived, we both ordered the falafel wrap which came with pita chips and a great dipping sauce. The falafel and dipping sauce were very good , the fruit smoothie was amazing, and the conversation enjoyable.

What a find on the Katy Trail! Convenient location. Cute caboose. Nice variety of menu options for a small establishment . Went the extra mile for great service. Enjoyed the falafel wrap am and ALT (avocado- lettuce - tomato). Standard selections such as a cheeseburger were also available. Great place for cyclists to congregate. Will return.

I just finished a bikepacking trip on the Katy Trail. The food highlight of the trip was the KT Caboose in Marthasville. High quality vegetarian food (I had the falafel wrap), and topknotch coffee (french press). The owner Jonathan was delightful to talk to, and a group of us solo riders had a great conversation on the deck. Highly recommended!

We stopped here for lunch the other day. The food was great and very heathy. He was working by himself but got the food ready in a reasonable amount of time. We also enjoyed the conversation with the nice gentleman who was running the place.

I stopped for a light dinner on 8/17/2021; Marthasville was my overnight stop while touring the Katy Trail. I had the ALT sandwich (avocado, lettuce, tomato) and some tasty fresh watermelon. The best part was the hour or so of convivial conversation with John and a couple of other patrons.

Saw the big caboose and swung around while doing my Katy out-and-back. Excellent choice! Picked up a hand-made berry smoothie and and ice cream cone. Young John is a fine fellow and we had a nice chat. Nice restrooms and it sounds like he is providing camping space now too.

I didn't stay long but this is a fine stop and the food looked great. 8/3/21

I stopped there in June 2021 to grab a bite. The owner is super friendly and the food was delicious. He has his own healthy creations. However, I opted for a delicious cheeseburger and ice cream.

He hadn't started the camping and showers yet when I was there, but he was in the process. I'm glad to see he's got it going now.

Every KATY rider should make this a stop.

Went to their Facebook page to find out more info about camping, and it looks like they closed in July 2017. https://www.facebook.com/davesktcaboose/posts/1784905978204726
