Have you been to Elk Horn lately?
Several years ago we started a booth at the Egg Krate in Elk Horn.
Since then we have come to realize just how much the mighty Danes have to offer. For a town of around 600 people, they are super active group putting on two yearly festivals, Julefest and Tivoli.
So what does Elk Horn have to offer? Head over in the morning and stop at the Coffee Girl. She has amazing coffees, teas and steamers. Have a yummy scone, muffin or cookie for a tasty treat.
The Egg Krate continues its tradition of antique, vintage and collectable finds. There is something for everyone.
Log Cabin Quilting recently moved into the former Fajen Lumber building. They now have more space and more to offer.
The Old Danish Workshop is handmade wood birdhouses, toys and more. The Nest Egg ladies clothing. Both are located next to the windmill.
Have you been to the Museum of Danish America, Genealogy Center or Danish Windmill? Even if you don’t have Danish roots, they are filled with history and modern culture.
Stay for lunch and stop at Larsen’s Pub for a giant tenderloin. They are on the Tenderloin Trail Across Iowa for a reason.
Rather have a pizza or pasta, stop at the Flour Mill. Or how about Elk Horn’s most recent addition, The Norse Horse. They offer Hoagies and soups plus a full service bar.
Did you know they have a tea room, Pleasant Thymes Tea Room. Just opened is a new clothing and art store, Copenhagen Friday.
And yes, back by popular demand, The Danish Table (moved into a new building behind the former Danish Inn, which has been torn down).
And before you leave the area, grab some wine at the Countryside Vines and Wines.
We are from Audubon and always feel so welcome. It’s a short drive, so give Elk Horn a try.
