After an early morning hike, I enjoyed the breakfast buffet at The Little Gem Restaurant inside Brown County State Park. This is a spread where you must ignore your doctor's advice, as this was a wonderful sample of southern Indiana home cooking. In memory of my recently departed father, I scarfed down a small bowl of biscuits and gravy, then turned my attention to hash brown and cheese casserole, pancakes, and French toast with fruit toppings, which were complemented by sausage, bacon, and an assortment of hot and cold cereal. My next hike was more like a waddle-walk.
The Little Gem Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Abe Martin Lodge.
