This Family Restaurant has been in business here for a long time, famous for coffee and pie. I find the daily entries a bit on the greasy side and a little dated. Service is slow (this is a slow area in general) and the dining room is functional and plain.

Good food at a good price. They have been in the community for years and have always given the same good service.

My mom brings me here for Saturday breakfast when I'm in town. It probably won't end up on Triple D, but my mom loves their sausage and the omelets are pretty darned good. I think I should go back and try their after breakfast food, because the menu looks good.

Boy, did we ever mess up. Put in address of 145 Main Street Saint Claire looking for Lewis Cafe (a place highly recommended in several of our Route 66 guide books) and the GPS routed us to a little shack at 145 N. Main Street, called Boot Heel BBQ. By the time we got there, my spouse couldn't remember the... More

Great food at a great price.Probably a Mom/Pop Cafe. Service was fast and friendly. This place is certainly off the beaten path but worth the time to discover it.

I have been a long-time customer of Lewis café, over the years we've seen little change which has been nice to have something familiar. They did a remodel several years back which is a big improvement. Removing the old flooring and putting in a nice vinyl hardwood made the place much cleaner. Smoke has always been a big issue for...

Breakfast and service here are great. Interior is decorated with all kinds of Route 66 memorabilia and old nostalgic photos.
