Best Breakfast Honor Goes to White Gull Inn

Fish Creek‘s White Gull Inn earned a healthy dose of fame this morning, and shared it with a great plug for Door County on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Good Morning America’s Marysol Castro interviews White Gull Inn owners Andy and Jan Coulson for the show.

The White Gull Inn’s cherry stuffed French toast won a nationwide contest as America’s best breakfast. Owner Andy Coulson was smiling ear-to-ear as he was interviewed this morning via Skype from the dining room of his restaurant. He spoke about the pride of winning by featuring a true local product.

“All of the restaurants try to feature our local cherries. The county’s original economy was based on cherries,” Coulson said. “We wanted to feature our local cherries and put it into something that everybody would take away from here and never forget.”

Going local proved profitable, earning the inn nationwide acclaim and the peninsula some publicity money can’t buy. Bill Weir, one of the GMA hosts and a native of Wisconsin, shared his love for the area with his viewers.

“It’s this beautiful peninsula between Green Bay and Lake Michigan and the White Gull Inn is one of the most beautiful spots,” Weir said.
