We doubled up on the Louisiana Purchase breakfast before our long ride day and were not disappointed. We did have some mechanical bike issues that morning and they were helpful with supplies but want folks to be aware, as it says on the Meriwether website, they are primarily a rental and supply store and not a repair shop. It was great to resupply tubes, get Powerades, and fill our tires with floor pumps.

I ate here on 10/11/22 while cycling between New Franklin and Jeff City. Rainy day and i was glad they were open for brunch. The sausage was great and appeared home made. Due to the rainy day, only 3 persons in the place so service was excellent!

I would recommend a stop here any time.

Wish there were more places like this along the trail. Vegetarian Huevos Rancheros was AMAZING! Super personable owner pointed out some trail highlights that we might have missed otherwise. GREAT stop!

+While we love Meriwethers it wouldn't be the primitive trail we all know and love if everything was as good as it is. This not for the wine drinking, vegetarians, caviar eatrs (although they are welcome too). Having to have a kingsize bed and a flush toilet seems to defeat the whole idea of our trail.

I always thought the whole idea of our trail was for people to get out and enjoy themselves whatever that might entail. Hell, I’ve even accepted that Coopers now caters to a demographic I’ll never belong to - never to return to what I consider it’s glory days of 50 cent Stag beers. Also, I am a huge fan of flush toilets having used many of the Katy’s pit toilets in the heat of summer. It may build character but I’m not sure it’s the character you want to build.

Interesting. The whole idea of our trail.

Had a very pleasant end-of-the-ride beer while we ordered takeout for later that night and sat on the patio chatting with the owner about the trail ahead. Definitely recommended.

Great food and atmosphere! the bike shop let me charge my wahoo while I sipped on a beer and had a great cheeseburger and fries! So good I ate there on my return trip and enjoyed the hummus sandwich!

Last stop for civilized dining and coffee when eastbound on a Monday or Tuesday. Great scones on the patio and very nice staff. They are closed Wednesdays (but double check).

Unfortunately missed my chance to stop here due to it being closed for the 10/26 snowstorm. Glad to see they're keeping their employees safe but a hot coffee sure would have made the ride go by quicker.

Well then you missed out. The Meriwether cafe is exponentially better now in every way than it was a few years ago. Glad they are there!

Hours are a little short, but they have mercy on stragglers.

Cheeseburger, fries, fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, and Loghead beer. We had a great early dinner, and plan to go there again for breakfast.

Staff was friendly and helpful and had ownership in the place.

There was a social ride that rolled out while we were there, but we were already too full of miles.

Visited the Meriwether Cafe for dinner and breakfast during our overnight at Rochport. Breakfast was especially good with locally sourced ingredients. This is a popular place for local cyclists on a Saturday morning. Great patio space right on the trail.

Stopped in for a water refill and a biscuit, not sure if it's changed hands since the last time I came through, but always seems to be fairly busy, probably one of the more reliable places I've seen on the trail.
