Cookies and gravy, hash and eggs, smoothie bowls, and vegan pastries such as homemade pop tarts and cake donuts complete the breakfast. For lunch, enjoy a classic Meriburger served with breaded fries or a smoked pulled pork sandwich with pickled jalapeños, pickled coleslaw and barbecue sauce on a potato bun.

New Chief Maxwell Crowley, formerly of Main compression, also adds its own specialties to the menu, including vegetarian options such as black bean bánh mì with pickled carrots, daikon radish, cucumbers, jalapeños, cilantro, mint and Sriracha mayonnaise. “With the exception of the standards which have always been there and will never go away, everything we serve is [Crowley’s]”, says Landolt.

Another well-guarded principle of coffee is the seasonality of the menu. “We have a strong relationship with a lot of local vendors and when we can, we use what they sell, even if that means we need to tweak our menu a bit,” says Landolt.

Meriwether’s strong local partnerships also benefit your morning cup of coffee. “We are very proud of our relationship with Coffee touches in Columbia, Missouri, ”says Landolt. “They make a great cup of coffee and we love that they’re certified organic and fair trade; they tick a lot of boxes for us. And they’re just great people.

While much of the emphasis is on pricing, the bike rental side of the Meriwether Café & Bike Shop shouldn’t be overlooked. The store does not sell bicycles, but visitors can rent them by the hour or by the day. “The fact that we have this option allows us to be a destination, even if you’re just from Colombia,” says Landolt. “You can have breakfast, go for a bike ride, come back for a cookie or ice cream, it’s a whole day. “
