Although little-known today, the true reason Vikings wore horned helmets was to store malted milkshakes for interminable longship voyages. Research the historic Viking-soda jerk connection with today's Groupon to Schubert's Diner & Bakery in Mt. Horeb. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Norwegian dinner fare (served starting at 11 a.m.).
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Norwegian breakfast fare (served all day).
Founded in 1911, Schubert's Diner & Bakery has spent the last century dishing out traditional Norwegian fare, including hearty breakfasts, homemade dinner plates, and fresh-baked goods. Norwegian meatballs sidle up to Swedish rye bread in a recipe that has been a signature item for the past 45 years ($7.50). Fresh-baked treats are available for purchase with both meal options and include rosettes, an intricate, fried Norwegian pastry coated in sugar for a snack as light and sweet as a hot-air balloon toting a heap of third graders' valentines ($0.85/1 or $3.99/5). Select the breakfast option for all-day access to morning delicacies. The lefse omelet blankets fluffy eggs in a rolled Norwegian potato flatbread before tucking in a tiny teddy-bear garnish ($6.75). Schubert's Diner & Bakery covers tables with blue-and-white-checked tablecloths and lines its soda fountain with old-fashioned white barstools, upon which guests slurp down ice creams and malts.
