Description: Mother Road Coffee is a specialty coffee house on the historic downtown square in Carthage, MO, just 2 blocks off of Route 66. We are directly across the street from the beautiful Jasper County courthouse. We offer espresso based hot and iced drinks, tea, smoothies, and assorted baked goods (selection varies daily). Soup of the day added to our menu as of September 2013. All soup is made in-house. Please see our Facebook page for today's soup.

As part of our Historic Route 66 we stopped off in Carthage to find a coffee.

We are so glad we found this coffee shop which provided us with a wonderful cup of coffee and tea (with milk in the tea rather than cream - brilliant for us Brits!!)

We set outside in the beautiful morning sun and enjoyed watching the slow pace of Carthage go by.

The staff in the shop were really helpful and keen to tell us about their town (which includes an Drive-In movie theatre on the outskirts!)

When we asked about the parking we were told it was free parking but, if we got a ticket, the lady offered to pay it for us because she wanted us to stay and enjoy the town!!

Not great if you have food allergies. I inquired about a clean blender for my coffee, as I have food allergies to items being added to some drinks. The person I spoke with informed me that they don't sanatize between each person and left it up to chance that no one had made anything in that blender that day that I would be allergic to.

Delicious brownies and a really nice lending library stand out at Mother Road Coffee. Experience an actual Macchiato and get away from the chain coffee store burnt coffee taste.

My girlfriends and I recently met at Mother Road Coffee to grab a drink together and catch up. This is a great place to do this. They have a variety of coffee-based drinks, but they also have a variety of smoothies to chose from. I am not a coffee drinker, but I love to go here for the smoothies. The atmosphere is very relaxed. It is a great place to catch up with great friends.
