From the Marshalltown (Iowa) Times-Republican "Niland's Cafe."
Niland's Cafe at Reed-Niland Corner in Colo, Iowa reopened in July after being closed for a year and a half.
Sandra Huemann-Kelly operates the restaurant and the six unit Colo Motel. She is active with the Lincoln Highway Association. Neon signs at the place attract attention.
The place is located where the old Lincoln and Jefferson highways intersected. i didn't know it but a national Jefferson Highway Association formed last year.
You can check out the excellent food Tuesday to Saturday from 6:30 am to 8 pm and Sundays from 6:30 to 2 pm (with a Sunday breakfast buffet).
A restored gas station from the 30s is at the site as well.
It was open several years ago when we were on the Iowa Lincoln Highway Motor Tour and I'm really glad to see it reopened.
