For our last breakfast in Weyburn this trip, our locals advised that we go to the restaurant at the truck stop for breakfast. This place, sitting on the edge of town by the gas station, featured not only Cheerful Server, but Sparkly Server, who was bedecked with rhinestone-decorated jeans and sequined T-shirt.The menu was on newsprint. We had very good breakfast, with tasty eggs, meats, thick-sliced toasts, and really sweet juicy oranges.  It’s very difficult to grow oranges like this in Weyburn, so I really applaud them.

That’s not the good bit. This is the good bit: The wine list featured fossil wines! Seriously, they had wines that have not been seen by human eyes since the 1970s. You can get Blue Nun Liebfraumlich , was pretty popular when I was in high school during the Carter administration, because high schoolers like sweet wine. Blue Nun was what we graduated to after we mastered Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill and Reunite Lambrusco. It may have even had a cork. Also, Mateus wine.  Do you remember Mateus? It was a sophisticated wine from Portugal that came in squatty bottles, so it was a step up from the green glass bottles. This comes from the Wine School of Different = Sophisticated. If you are celebrating a special occasion in Weyburn, you have a choice of two different champagnes: Andres Baby Duck or Asti Spumante! (I throw up a little in my mouth when I think of those.)

Even that’s not the REALLY good bit. I’ll cover the best bit about the Main Track Café tomorrow! Which is the skeptic alert.

Score for breakfast, so far: 7 out of 10
