White Rose Cafe double cheeseburger

Once upon a time White Rose was just a gas station; then, it started selling burgers. 

Wholesome and hearty home-style food defines the menu at White Rose Café in Union, Missouri. A downtown landmark since 1932, it was originally part of the White Rose gas station chain and eventually sold burgers too.

Union native and current owner Dana Robinson worked as a server at the restaurant for 17 years before buying the business three years ago. She says that the from-scratch biscuits and gravy fly out of the kitchen for breakfast, but patrons also love the “really mean” burger.

Stop in on a Wednesday for housemade meatloaf or a Friday night for fresh fried chicken.
