Breitbach's (Balltown IA) Rises from Ashes!
Christmas Eve, 2007, Breitbach's in Balltown, Iowa, was destroyed by fire. It's the oldest continually operating food establishment in Iowa right on the most scenic spot in Iowa. What a loss that was. But for a change, some spirit-lifting news! The new Breitbach's is open and is beautiful! They've taken the same floor plan, but added vaulted ceilings, oak beams, a fireplace, beautiful woodwork - you have to see it. And the food, thankfully, is just as good. Stop by this fall and celebrate the restaurant's return and the spirit of the Breitbach's and their friends and fans who volunteered to help throughout the construction. And the pies are still great!
