WOW that was the best oatmeal I've ever had. I look forward to my next trip up so I can order it again. Door county cherries, chopped nuts and brown sugar in perfectly cooked oatmeal. What a great surprise the combination of flavors was.

If you think the White Gull Inn is the only place for breakfast in Fish Creek, you’re wrong. I couldn’t do cherry pancakes two days in a row, but wish I had after seeing them. My omelet was fantastic, next time... cherries.

Our group of six ladies enjoyed a wonderful local breakfast - food comes from local businesses/farms/etc. I had a wonderful mushroom omelette with pumpkin bread and applesauce! I was so excited to have leftovers to enjoy the next day too!

Walking distance from our accommodations. Friendly staff and excellent service. Great choice for breakfast. Bought some of the cherry jam that is made at the restaurant and served with breakfast.
