One of our favorite places to send guests is to the Boyd and Wurthmann restaurant in Berlin, Ohio, about a 35-minute drive from the Inn. Set in the heart of Amish country, it’s like a step back in time, oozing with charm, and filled with scents of fresh baked pies.
Dozens and dozens of pies are made fresh daily here, just one of the treats you’ll find on a visit. Boyd and Wurthmann has been in the same downtown spot since 1938 and visitors will feel a sense of the past here in everything from the comfy setting, to the tables of locals discussing the news, to the coffee that is still 75 cents per cup.
Despite its old-time feel and size, the restaurant is a powerhouse of food, serving many of the area’s four million annual tourists, as well as all of us faithful followers. Dining here is pure down-home, with a menu that skews hearty. Homemade soups, sandwiches—hot roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy is popular—and fresh salads, join entrees that feature items such as pork chops, country fried steak, and sausage and chicken dinners.
But the most irresistible thing Boyd and Wurthmann makes are its pies. Oh my, they are delicious! Seasonal fruits are featured in many of the 15 to 20 daily choices, including my personal favorite, fresh peach pie. Second to the pies are the diner’s homemade cinnamon rolls. Grandma never made them so good!
The restaurant opens early, and is a top draw for breakfast. One item to try: “The Wreck”, an Amish haystack that is a layered-up specialty of biscuits, eggs, cheese, meat, veggies, and sausage gravy.
