Emma Café – Savor home-style cooking in Topeka

Just 10 minutes from Shipshewana—in the heart of Northern Indiana Amish Country—you’ll find a hidden treasure at the Emma Café. Making its home in an old general store, order from a classic menu including sandwiches and grinders on homemade bread, salads, ribs, chick, noodles, and pizza.

The restaurant also offers daily specials like ham loaf or Swiss steak with delicious sides. If you still have room for dessert, treat yourself to a piece of pie, a sundae, or an ice cream cone. The location has been an important part of this tiny town since two brothers built a general store here in 1881. The current owners took over in 2007, and today it makes a great stop to fuel your adventure in Indiana’s Cool North.
