Rock Island Market and Cafe is the perfect destination for hungry diners looking for a cozy, hole-in-the-way atmosphere with delicious food. Located within the Rock Island Market, a gas station store just outside of Rock Island State Park, the cafe serves up authentic southern food with friendly service.

The cafe is a local staple and considered by many the heart of the area. Locals stop in for their bait and tackle, and stay for a hearty meal from the kitchen. Menu highlights include fried catfish, hush puppies, biscuits and gravy, and hickory smoked pulled pork. Specials are written daily on a whiteboard and change often.

For visitors of Rock Island State Park, this cafe is a must-see stop for grub before or after your day’s adventures.
