I was riding this section of trail on a Monday and virtually nothing was open along the trail. Joey, who runs the McKittrick Mercantile restaurant, saw me walking around the building and offered to cook me some food despite it being closed for the day. She made a great veggie pizza for a reasonable price, and was great company to boot. The Mercantile provides a much-needed service along the trail, and folks passing through McKittrick should take the short 100 yard walk to the Mercantile experience and support this great asset.

We will have to try it, sounds great.
We stop at the Loutre Market a lot for a drink or a food. They have a small deli in the back and have good food. It is just south of the trai off of HWY 19 about 1/4 of a mile.
