Nothing fancy, just plain old good food, at this hotel restaurantwhich might be your best option for breakfast in Galena
While Galena's downtown more or less teems with options for lunch and dinner, finding a good spot for breakfast is tougher. The Courtyard--in a four-story atrium in the old-fashioned, elegant DeSoto House Hotel--may be your best bet. It serves simple but superb morning fare at eminently reasonable prices. The decor isn't anything fancy--just family-restaurant-style tables and chairs on a tile floor, with the juice dispenser and coffeemakers in plain sight--but the food is a cut above standard breakfast offerings. If you can spare the calories, the stuffed French toast, with orange-flavored cream cheese packed between slices, is an indulgent and awesome treat ($7). If that seems too extreme, convince someone else to order it so you can steal a bite, then go with the super-satisfying breakfast burrito ($8). Coffee refills are free and frequent, and you're likely to hear local folks meeting to discuss business while you linger.
