ORLANDO — Commercial fishing is a major industry in the state of Alaska, and this has been the case for literally hundreds of years, ever since Alaska Natives began harvesting salmon in the early 17th century.

It could be providing fast food, or it could be offering something more upscale, but essentially everyone recognizes the name, and goes there because they know exactly what they’re going to get.
But what if you’re one of those patrons, like me, who has a craving instead for the unpredictable, for the surprise meal that doesn’t taste like it was made assembly-style?
There will be times when it feels like an uphill climb as you cruise down those busy commercial corridors and see one chain after another. But then ….
It’s called The Old European Breakfast House, and it’s a restaurant located on a busy commercial strip. Continue reading
