Overview

Cafe Indiana is both a guide to Indiana s hometown mom-and-pop restaurants and a reclamation and celebration of small-town Midwest culture. The hungry diner looking for adventure and authenticity can use Cafe Indiana simply as a guide to the state s quintessential eats: the best fiddlers, macaroni and cheese, soup beans, and beef Manhattan. But Stuttgen also captures the spirit of the locals, bringing to life the people whose stories give the book and the food its soul.
Over plates of chicken and noodles, fried bologna sandwiches, and sugar cream pie, folks are crafting community at the Main Street eatery. In Cafe Indiana, Hoosiers and out-of-staters alike are invited to pull out a chair and sit a spell."

Interviews

“Re-riding the routes for this second edition was like visiting an old friend. I wondered why I had waited so long to do it. I found some major changes, like the bypasses around Lake Geneva and La Crescent. There were nice surprises of new pavement and a few ‘oh, dears’ at crumbling country roads—all part of the adventure of motorcycling. I’ve ridden in a lot of beautiful places, and southern Wisconsin is still one of the best. It draws me back with its winding roads, rural landscape, and friendly people.”—Barbara Barber
