Best Cafe in Illinois

strawberry dessert

Seriously, SuperGuy and I stumbled upon the best cafe in Illinois when we were out antiquing. Ariston Cafe in Litchfield, IL.

Yes, that strawberry dessert tasted as delicious as it looked! My fav part of the lunch!

But I love the whole experience! From the authentic formica table tops…

Ariston CafeSo if you’re ever on highway 55 in Illinois,  near Litchfield (it’s on old route 66…remember the Historic Route 66 sign I took a photo of?) …make a side trip into town and have the strawberry dessert at Ariston cafe…and anything else on the menu that catches your eye. Yum.

As an aside…if anyone has the recipe for that strawberry dessert, hook me up! I’ve googled to no avail.
