Oark General Store and Cafe

 Today, JC and I decided to take a road trip to the oldest general store in Arkansas.  This little piece of history is located in the Ozark National Forest high on a mountain ridge north of Clarksville, AR.

 The store is fully functional and tries to meet the needs of the locals.  It is also a cafe and is known for serving delicious pies.

 It is eclectic and quaint with numerous tables in the midst of canned goods and the dairy case.

 We both ordered the burgers and found them well crafted and tasty.
 We had to try the pies and were told the most popular are the coconut cream and the buttermilk custard. We tried them both and they were delicious.

Today is Sunday and there were a lot of people out exploring.  We were amazed at the number of folks who made the Oark General store a destination today.  It's a beautiful drive and well worth the time.


  1. Those onion rings look good too!

  2. It was all good. Lots of bikers, but we were in our truck. Might have been a little scary on a motorcycle!
