Hilltop Cafe Informative - Filthy Cafe
CORRECTIONVILLE, IOWA -- A longtime landmark on Hwy 20 west of Correctionville, Ia. is the Hilltop Cafe.
It's one of those places that you wonder how it ever stays open, as you never see any customers there. I remember seeing it there as a child, in the same relative condition that it's in now.
A few years ago a friend of mine and I decided to go there just once, to say we actually had been there.
Inside the squat little cafe was a low counter with about 8 stools. The stools were so low that the customers were in a deep squat position siting on them.
The walls were covered in a layer of years old rancid grease, and the whole place wreaked of rancid grease.
I ordered a think chocolate shake. They brought my drink and it was as thin as milk chocolate.
I've never went back, but at least I can say I was there once.
If you are ever in the Correctionville area, on Hwy. 20 be sure to stop by the Hilltop Cafe. You won't want to eat there, but at least you can still tell your friends you stopped by for a gawk!
