Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
The Buchel family
The Buchel Family Although they were not one of the first settlers in Mequon, they made quite a contribution to the growth and assets to the Town. They came here from Switzerland, their mother country. Their father was a well known chef in Switzerland and the sons followed in his vocation. There were five boys, ' ,erner, Eugene, Walter, and Joe, and ? who were all tutored by their father. They, served their apprentice- ship as chefs under such able tutors as Uike Goldman, Maders, C -ri Raasch, etc. They bought the original stone con- sturction from August Gruenwald brick and stone residence and t: vern on the northwest corner of Cedarburg Plank Road and Donges Bay Road. Their prime goal in operating a restaurant was to offer their customers the best food they could buy, cook it and season it to make it the most taste- ful food. This they accomplished which is evidenced by the great number of people eating there. Their annual Mardi Gras celebration is always well attended. Nearly every few years another addition to the building is made. Each addition is decorated differently and as one will notice in the restau- rant business, tie Buchel (iAlmin Inn) is three places put into one building. In the past few years, Werner Buchel occupied his spare time to the writing of songs and the appro- pte--ct -h--u &.1 ereto. It took about two years to complete the sony~ a nd music. This he would then show to the public, i: .i . c, :.' - oe for the~ show and a meal. About eiF1 t ar te i f these p)erformances were given. In the past four or five years, Mr. Buchel with the help of some local and irofessional hel}', showed two different performnances.
