For the first part of my blog…I ended with us at Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery! 3rd winery of our wonderful Saturday of our girls weekend getaway!
After all the wineries, we were ready for some chow!
The reviews for the place were pretty good. I don’t know if the kitchen staff was new or if they were just goofing off because it was a slow off season night, but we had a few issues. 40 minutes after ordering they told us they didn’t have the prime rib the way my sis n law JK ordered it, I was given the wrong potatoes, the bottom of CrazyBestie’s chicken was burnt, and my other sis n law CL’s jumbo shrimp weren’t so jumbo.
If it weren’t for all the mess ups….the food would have been delicious! My food was delicious. Just the wrong potato. So, I wouldn’t say don’t try The Log Den…it just may be better in season instead of during off season.
We did love the rustic interior of the restaraunt and the waitress was nice!
Our plans for Sunday morning were to wake up and make our breakfast in our little kitchenette. Instead, we relaxed and slept in. So….we packed up, checked out, and headed out to a cute little diner for breakfast.
In all our times out in Door County, we’ve driven past The Village Cafe a ton of times and never even thought about stopping in. It’s not so cute on the outside, but looks can be deceiving! Check this out…
And the food….
And the charm…..
And don’t even get me started on the tasty mimosas! The coffee was great too…and I’m picky about my coffee!!!
I WILL be going back again!
From there we started to make our way out of town….but ended up making a few more stops along the way.
Like this cute little place….
It’s a little coffee shop that sells Door County made Coffees, teas, and loose teas. There also some pretty swanky clothing, jewelry, and knic knacks. I didn’t get any coffee, but it smelled heavenly in there!!!! I think i should have! There was even a drive up expresso bar!
From there it was off to our final winery of the weekend!!
The shop that is attached to it wasn’t open being off season which was a bummer, but the wine sure made up for it!
After trying a delicious dessert wine, the ladies were craving chocolate! Our handy dandy helper man referred is to a candy shop on the way home. Of course we HAD to stop!
Our final stop on the way home was Renards cheese. Because what could be a better way to end the weekend than with some fresh cheese…..
From the cheese place….we made our way home to end our girls weekend. While we all were ready to go home and 3 of us missed out kiddos…we weren’t ready for the fun and relaxing weekend to be over! Although, we are planning on doing it again!
