Father's Day smoked whitefish at the Washington Hotel Coffee Room
During our regular Sunday morning bike ride -- clear skies at last! -- we stopped at the Washington Hotel Coffee Room for their amazing smoked whitefish spread on the sourdough bread they bake themselves. (Click on photo montage to enlarge in Flickr.) The Washington Hotel is located on Door County's Washington Island, and they have revitalized locally-grown agriculture on the island. I love this place, their Madison outpost. It's located in Lakeside Fibers on Lakeside Street. I'm not a knitter, but every time I look at that bright, warm wall filled with colorful skeins of yarn, I start to fantasize about taking up knitting someday. On the other side of the room, cool breezes blowing in through the open screened windows from the lake out back were the next best thing to being in Door County itself. A great Father's Day brunch.
