Enjoy a locally roasted cuppa joe at the beautiful I&M Canal Cafe and Visitors Center! Located inside a former carriage shop, originally built in the early 1910s, you'd be hard pressed to find a more architecturally interesting place to enjoy a latte in Starved Rock Country.
The Lock 16 Café stocks a wide variety of beverages, everything from artisan sodas to a signature house-brewed iced tea, but perhaps most importantly is their full espresso bar. You can order an Americano, flavored latte, or even a caramel macchiato (all available piping hot or iced). If you're looking for something a little more traditional, but with some flavor, consider mix and matching flavor shots in Lock 16's standard and iced coffee orders.
The Café offers a full menu of breakfast options. The "Get Up and Go Oatmeal" (served with brown sugar, cinnamon and cranberries) and Wild Bill's Breakfast Sandwich (featuring your choice of egg, cheese, and bacon or sausage, served on a buttermilk biscuit, English muffin, or toast) make excellent additions to any early morning java. Quiche and Frittata specials are also featured daily, so keep an on the Lock 16 Café and Visitors Center Facebook page!
