Etta and I loved this charming old school Northwoods breakfast joint. The woman who waited on our table kept the restaurant open a little later in the afternoon than normal to accommodate an elderly couple visiting from Wausua. Turns out she is the owner who also lived in Wausua, and they reminisced about the early eighties when Wausau was awarded the All America City Award.
The bloody mary was punchy and flavorful and right up Etta’s alley. I enjoyed a welcome bite of coffee cake after we had placed our food orders. The breakfast was the star of the experience here. I had the Weed Bed, a fishing term, not what happens slumber-wise post munchies. Crispy potatoes and American cheese blanketed eggs over easy and thick cut bacon. The bread was homemade and richly delicious.
