The Humble Little Restaurant Missourians Are Quietly Obsessed With

A few weeks ago, we asked our followers on Instagram to tell us about their favorite restaurant in Missouri. We were flooded with favorites, but one small town restaurant kept being mentioned. Followers from all over the state raved about the delicious salads, warm atmosphere, creative entrees, well stocked bar, and indulgent desserts. The Hawthorne Inn is one restaurant Missourians are quietly obsessed with and for good reason, it’s amazing!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
