Kudos to a well known Door County Restaurant in Fish Creek! The White Gull Inn received national recognition from ABC television’s iconic morning show “Good Morning America” and their contest to determine America’s best breakfast. The breakfast menu nominated for the contest is Door County Cherry Stuffed French Toast (see picture above and drool).
From Jeff Alexander at WBAY television in Green Bay:
A quaint Door County inn is headed for the national spotlight.
A crew from ABC’s “Good Morning America” spent the day there sampling one of its soon-to-be famous breakfast specials.
It’s one of the most exciting days in the White Gull Inn’s 114-year history, and around Fish Creek, the locals spread the word.
“They wanted to be here, they wanted to be part of this, and we started having a line out there. The first people showed up at quarter to 7 for a 7:30 opening, and by 7:30 we filled all 25 tables. It was like a festive event,” the inn’s Andy Coulson said.
Last Friday, Andy and Jan Coulson received a call from Good Morning America saying their inn had been chosen as one of four finalists for ABC’s Best Breakfast Challenge, with feature correspondent Marysol Castro.
“I’m happy they waited ’til Friday to let us know, because I think if we had any more time to think about it we would really be a nervous wreck,” Jan Coulson said.
The episode will be aired on Saturday, May 15 at 7 am (CST).
There are 3 other finalists but NONE could possibly be as good as the White Gull Inn!

Win or lose this contest, the White Gull Inn will remain a favorite to Door County visitors and locals alike.
