JANUARY 23, 2015, Friday: We woke up today at the fabulous old 1905 Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah, Iowa, and went downstairs to the hotel's restaurant, called Restauration.
Last night we had met Bob Anderson, Mr. Decorah Eagles, at Your Place Bar and talked eagles and he had strongly recommended the hotel's Blue Plate Special for breakfast. He said it was a big meal and very reasonably priced, especially for a fancy hotel like we were at for the night.
He was right on the mark. The price was $5.50 and included two eggs, hash browns, toast and your choice of housemade Italian sausage or Polashenk's bacon.
I, however, was much tempted to order the French toast made with lingonberries topped with lingonberry butter. Maybe next time. I'd never heard of lingonberries before.
Good Eating Right by the huge window fronting Main Street across from a downtown J.C. Penney's store, something you don't see much any more.
