On a day's trip through lush, rural south central Wisconsin, our destination was Mount Horeb, a small community of about 7,000 inhabitants. Many of the old downtown buildings are filled with interesting and novel business and a walk down The main street should be taken at a slow stroll to enjoy the ambience.
Looking for a spot for a quick burger, we wandered into the Troll Inn just off the Main Street. It has a very unremarkable exterior, but the interior is a typical Wisconsin tavern with a bar and stools and tables in the back. The women bartender, who I believe is also the owner or manager, was most friendly and provided good, quick service. A variety of burgers are advertised as "hand patted." The portions were large and accompanied with delicious, hot crisp fries.
We asked for directions to a speciality chocolate shop we had seen advertised on the Internet. The bartender told us the owner had gone out of business the year before but she still made some special orders for local residents. She called the chocolatier at home and asked if she had any candy presently made. She did not, but said she could make some toffee if we would be around for a few hours. We enthusiastically accepted the offer and left Mount Horeb a few hours later with a tin of wonderful toffee each.
