Get a wide array of coffee treats, as well as breakfast and lunch just across the RR tracks in Forrest at the The Coffee Steamer, 101 W. Krack St., Forrest, IL.  Need some wholesome snacks, meats, cheeses, etc.?  The Country Cupboard, Forrest, IL is a stone’s throw away just west on Rte. 24.  Continue on to Fairbury to visit Lost Arts Fabric store and then walk across the street for a delicious gourmet breakfast/lunch at Lost in Time restaurant. Be sure to save room for dessert!

Stock up on groceries at one of Central Illinois’ finest at Dave’s Supermarket. You will find quality, selection, AND they even carry your bags to your car! Kilgus Farmstead Country Store, a 4th generation family farm, is a great place to purchase meat directly from their farm. This is one of our favorite places to stop for $1 self-serve, fresh ice cream cones. Deserving equal ice cream time is Catton’s Creamery and DQ in Fairbury.  If you are looking for an adult beverage (Thursday-Sunday) check out Emancipation Brewery. It is a craft brewery & taproom in a remodeled dairy barn.  After all this food and drink, you may want a little exercise. Enjoy a walk through parks in Forrest and Fairbury or on a nature trail through Fugate Woods.

There are many large and small fabric stores in the area that are all unique. I am a fan of all of them!
