From the street, White Gull Inn looks like a collection of charming white houses, but inside are some nummy-tummy things. Namely: eggs with a side order of a cinnamon roll and cherry-stuffed french toast with cream cheese. Because White Gull is a beloved place in Door County, watch out for aggressive customers. People get SERIOUS about their french toast and... More

Of course I knew the place was going to be busy seeing that it was 10:00 on a Sunday but we only had to wait about 15 minutes. The breakfast was delicious - two eggs and toast. Split the blueberry coffee cake with my friend and enjoyed a cup of coffee. Our waitress was super and even though she poured... More

A trip to Door County is not complete without a stop at the White Gull Inn for breakfast. They are famous for their stuffed French toast but the traditional egg breakfasts are also wonderful. Order the Swedish toast with the homemade jelly and a side of their delicious hash browns yum!!

Very charming, very pleasant. Excellent breakfasts here; my favorite is the corned beef hash. Lunch menu has some lovely salads and sandwiches. Dinners are spectacular. Fish boils are as good as fish boils can get! Extremely popular during the tourist season, so go early.

A warm, glowing dining room overlooking a snow covered courtyard sparkling with little white lights. A candlelit table by the harpist. The Beef Tenderloin and the Shrimp and Scallops both were excellent. Kings and Queens should have it so good!

The menu offers a wide variety of fish, beef,pork and vegetarian meals at affordable pricing levels and the dessert tray completes the event. We had the prix fixe meals consisting of salad, choice of chicken or stuffed... More

We have vacationed in Door County consistently over the past 40 years and eating at the White Gull Inn is always a must while there. The breakfasts are outstanding and matched by the efficient and warm service of the staff. The daily specials including pecan or cherry pancakes and the wonderful homemade coffee cakes are favorites. We have also enjoyed... More
