We are in Woodland, WA, just twenty miles north of the Oregon/Washington border. Our RV park is located on the Columbia River, and we are here to explore the Columbia River Gorge. Only one problem. Constant rain. (Have we mentioned how much rain we’ve had lately?)
So if we can’t go the Gorge, what do we do? Go out for breakfast, of course. But one thing I have learned about restaurants in small towns (Woodland’s population is 5,540) is that few have websites; few newspaper reviewers have written about them; and few bloggers have blogged about them. So, except for some comments on yelp.com, urbanspoon.com, or tripadvisor.com, you are in the dark. But Rosie’s came in as the Number Two spot on tripadvisor.com, so with only that information at hand, we set off for breakfast.
About all that passed for décor
So renowned was the Mascot that a metal replica now sits at Hoffman Plaza in Woodland.
In making his choices, Chuck was (gently) guided by our friendly server. When he was about to order the full stack of pancakes, she suggested that perhaps the short stack would be plenty. When he was about to choose a full order of hash browns, she suggested that the half might be the better choice.
I am sure that the hash browns came into the restaurant frozen (The neat rectangular shape is a give-a-way.), but were still nice and crisp.
