Ariston Cafe
Pete Adam started the Ariston Cafe in nearby Carlinville in 1924. When the Mother Road was rerouted in 1929, Pete leased a new building in Litchfield. The Ariston’s great reputation for service, excellent food, and unbelievable desserts led Pete to relocate across the street in 1935 to his own building that still stands today. After three generations, the cafe is under new ownership of Martin and Kara Steffens, and Will and Michelle Law. The Ariston is said to be the oldest cafe on Route 66 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 and the Route 66 Hall of Fame.
