Midtown Cafe in Newton Iowa
A lot of places have come and gone over the years in Newton but this little place with the words CAFE visible on the square has been around for as long as I can recall. This is an older diner that specializes in burgers and breakfasts that had a bunch of families eating here when I visited.
Location: 120 1st St North in Newton, Jasper County in Central Iowa.
Directions: this is on the East side of the square across the street from the County Courthouse.
Online at: facebook page is HERE.
Price: $8.99 with a side
Service: its seat yourself table service with tables and booths and a counter in the back.
Final Thoughts: I had driven through Newton so many times over the years that I couldn't count. but finding a good tenderloin has eluded me. I had tried an old diner beside the Maid Rite, and I wanted to stop at a racing themed bar on the East side of town. But that place was closed on a Sunday when I was driving through, like how many racing themed bars are closed on Sunday? I remember when there was an Argentine steakhouse called Gauchos just a block of the square and I never made it in and now its been gone for ten years now.
