POW! It doesn’t matter where we are or what we are doing…we will find a place for brunch that makes us go, “aaaaahh!” Here in Mineral Point, Wisconsin the place that does this for us is the Red Rooster Cafe located on High Street right smack dab in the middle of town. The Red Rooster is ‘famous’ for their Cornwall-style pasties, which are simply rugged dough casings filled with potatoes and meats and veggies. . .like a really hearty pierogi or a really heavy dumpling. The pasties here are good but not as good as those we have had in England. . .the Red Rooster version has a lot of dough and not a lot filling–I wish it was the other way around–nevertheless, I gobble my pastie, and I am happy. After the pastie we then inhale an order of eggs benedict–egg yolks not runny–booooo, an order of eggs over easy–cooked to perfection, hash browns, sausage patties and buttered rye toast…all of this is delicious and satisfying. . .mmmm, aaahh! But the real star is the slice of cherry pie that I ingest with relish. . .really good pie. . .crust could be a bit more flaky, but overall this is a real star of our meal. . .and everything is washed down with bottomless unsweetened iced tea. . .mmmmm, aaaaahh!
So, if you ever find yerself wanderin’ around in the heart of Mineral Point, Wisconsin, please stop by the Red Rooster Cafe and put a feed on. . .they will treat you right and send you on your way plump and full.
