It's fun just to gaze around any of the small rooms at this restaurant. There's something fascinating anywhere you look. I always order the fish for dinner - the chef really knows his seafood, but breakfast is the absolute greatest treat: eggs Benedict, fluffy pancakes w/blueberries, perfectly done eggs, and great coffee. And this comes with open fireplaces, soft music, and excellent service, to say nothing of the resident kitty and the plethora of flowers outside (there are also tables outside for lunch. Two of them have tops made of stone with huge fossils in them). Lovely place!! If you're not staying there, be sure to make reservations, but, really, why not just rest your head at Deetjen's?
