On our way home from camping, we stopped in Wisconsin Dells for a quick lunch at McDonald’s. We passed Paul Bunyan’s Cook Shanty. We’ve never been to that one, but we’ve often eaten at the restaurant in Minocqua, near where my parents used to live. Sally loves their cinnamon-sugar donuts, so on the way back to the Interstate, we stopped in. There were cars in the lot and people moving around inside, so Sal went in. I stayed outside and took a quick photo.
Sally soon came out without donuts. She’d talked with the owner and found out a great deal of information in a very short time. The restaurant wasn’t open — only the gift shop. The restaurant closes after Labor Day. But the owner’s kids are out of school and she has time on her hands, so she’s seeing if the gift shop will draw business. She’s also thinking about opening the restaurant on major holidays. She encouraged us to stop by if we were in the neighborhood and see. But no donuts.
