The Bike Stop Cafe and Outpost

Stretching across the state from Machens to Clinton, Missouri’s Katy Trail is 237 miles long and mostly flat – perfect for running, hiking and biking. But all that activity is bound to make a person hungry…and thirsty. Luckily, the Katy Trail is bordered by great spots to fuel up and hydrate (we’re not just talking about water).

St. Charles

Begin or end your adventure at The Bike Stop Café and Outpost in St. Charles, near the eastern trailhead. Grab a delicious, healthy breakfast or lunch. Vegetarian options are available as well as coffee and wine. You can purchase or rent a bike or have a repair done here.

Stop off for pizza and a beer at Good New Brewing Company. The sourdough wood-fired pizzas are mouthwateringly delicious and will fuel you up for the rest of your adventure. The menu standout is the Vampire Deathwish, complete with house-made garlic sauce, spinach, feta and mozzarella cheese.


Enjoy a cappuccino, espresso or latte at Augusta Bakery and Coffee Shop in the heart of Missouri wine country in Augusta. The shop is located in a renovated 1880s building that also houses The Augusta Emporium, where you can peruse sundries, wine, food and gifts.
