When you begin breakfast with an appetizer of big, fluffy fresh-made cinnamon rolls dripping with sweet white icing and gooey-sweet caramel pecan rolls, you think you hit the highlight of the meal, but the delectable tastes don’t end with Ronnie’s World Famous Rolls at Ruby’s Restaurant in Decorah, Iowa.
I could have switched from sweet to savory with eggs benedict made with house-made hollandaise sauce or an chicken fajita omelette. However, when I saw that Ruby’s was offering fall specials like pumpkin pancakes and apple French toast, I couldn’t resist.
My choice was the pumpkin pancakes, full of fall flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, served with a big dollop of whipped cream.

I didn’t get to try Ruby’s for lunch, but with menu items like Norwegian Meatballs made from a fourth-generation family recipe and homemade chicken pot pie with a cream cheese crust, it’s no wonder Ruby’s Restaurant is one of Decorah’s top restaurants, according to Trip Advisor.
Ruby’s Restaurant & Catering, located in downtown Decorah, Iowa, at 120 East Water Street, is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. (7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays). Besides breakfast and lunch, you can purchase homemade loaves of bread (whole wheat, white, Norwegian rye, cinnamon, raisin cinnamon or sourdough), as well as Jo’s homemade jams and jellies.
