Long Description:
Very laid back diner with some of the best food I have ever had. I had a breakfast BLT on homemade bread that was to die for. Others in the party had a steak scramble and some REALLY decadent French Toast. The old building, with the pressed tin ceiling, was just screaming small town diner with great food. Definitely worth a stop when in Stockton, Illinois, and off the beaten track!

A decadent meal for everyone's budget!

We are open every day for breakfast and lunch, serving homemade breads, salad dressings, soups, etc. Special dinners announced periodically, otherwise we are not open at night for dinner. Seasonally, on Sundays we offer a breakfast buffet in addition to the menu. Stop in to see us in our beautiful, nationally registered, historic building.

If you are interested in catering, please call the restaurant at 815-947-2080 and we will make a time to meet or speak with you about your event. We also rent out the building at night for private parties.

The W.E. White Building, located at 100 North Main Street, Stockton, IL, is a late 19th century, two story Queen Anne styled commercial building. The brick structure built in 1897 is approximately twenty five feet in width and ninety nine feet in length. Located at the northwest corner of Front Avenue and Main Street in downtown Stockton, it is one of many commercial structures erected after the 1886 fire. Stockton is located approximately 25 miles southeast of Galena in Jo Daviess County, Illinois.

The twenty-five foot facade faces south looking out to Front Avenue. The building's exterior walls and foundation have a common bond brick pattern composed of six courses of stretchers to each course of headers and is darker on the front facade and a portion of the east facade towards the south. The front entrance sits diagonally on the southeast corner of the building. The eastern wall, running ninety-nine feet long, faces Main Street. Its parapet walls are highest at the south end of the eastern facade and get lower as you get further away from the front entrance. At the northern end of the wall, is the rear entrance to the business with a cast metal and plate glass store front. The west wall adjoins another building, the Stafford Building, built in 1897. The rear wall, facing north adjoins a one story brick structure approximately twenty feet by twenty-five feet in size.
