6/11 Where in Clayton County am I?


Congratulations to Shana Hilgerson – Elkader , who correctly submitted the answer, “Pedretti’s Bakery” and was selected the winner of last week’s contest.
Clayton County experts here is the clue for this week’s “Where in Clayton County am I?” contest.

Fresh pork loins, tantalizing turkey tenders, juicy ribeye steaks, and tasty boiled or fried cod are just a few of the favorites from this Iowa hot spot. Stealing the show though are the juicy, plump, and flavorful burgers made up of fresh, quality, local beef and served on a homemade bun. Get one that is topped with bacon, onions, jalepeños, or mushrooms, have it smothered in cheese, or even try it plain. For those with an especially large appetite, there is an especially large burger. One pound of 80/20 Iowa beef is hand-pattied and grilled up just for you, the menu lists seven ways you can order your own from this restaurant and pub in Gunder where “you can’t leave hungry!”

6/4 Where in Clayton County am I?


Congratulations to Shelley Havelick of McGregor, IA , who correctly submitted the answer, “Volga U” and was selected the winner of last week’s contest.
Clayton County experts here is the clue for this week’s “Where in Clayton County am I?” contest.

For people familiar with Elkader, seeing a person walk by holding a crisp, white paper bag is a cue for your mouth to water. Visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the “freshly baked goodness” this family-owned business bakes up daily. The store itself and its surrounding area smell sweetly of the pastries and breads that are sold each Tuesday through Saturday at this popular Clayton County treasure. Once you enter through the door, you are greeted by the familiar tinkling of a bell and a smile from the clerk. Now comes the hard part. The display of baked goods, from breads to pastries to cookies, is a feast for the eyes and makes it difficult to decide on just one treat. Luckily, the reasonable prices allow you to get a treat (or multiple) for both now and later. Once you’ve made your purchase, you can be on your way with a goodie-filled, crisp, white paper bag of your own.
