Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery

The phrase "comfort food" has been bandied about so much that it's become a cliché. Stale notion or not, the Blue Owl satisfies these longings in a country-diner atmosphere. Owner Mary Hostetter's Texas roots are evident in menu items such as biscuits and gravy topped with crumbled pork sausage, chicken-fried steak with country gravy and red-velvet cake. The influence of German immigrants on this region is also apparent, with German potato salad and German chocolate cake, cheesecake and pie. Even the Great Flood of 1993, whose roiling waters threatened to engulf Kimmswick, is commemorated with "levee-high apple pie."
