We got the tour of the small town of Brussels on the one main street where you'll find the bank and post office are all one building, right across from the Wittmond Hotel. The hotel was built in 1847 and started out as a trading post built by Conrad Wittmond, a German immigrant. When you first walk in, you pass through the regularly used (and modern) bar, cutting through a "store" full of knick-knacks, and then over to the restaurant side.
The restaurant serves family style meals Friday-Monday so they stop coming with food only when you give in. We tried to have a small breakfast in order to have room!
Before you even sit down, a relish tray is waiting for you! There were beets, carrots, celery, apple rings (this was new to me), corn relish (also new), and peach preserves, which I spread on the hot rolls they brought out. You can see the applesauce on the side as well as the cole slaw below, which I mistakenly filled up on since it was so good.

Next up was the main course...or should I say courses? There was roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, green beans, and the star of the show, fried chicken. My friends were nice and left me the legs! Patience tried to get a little of everything on her plate.

If you go, make sure you have an appetite raring to go!
