Maple Leaf Dinner Menu

This menu from the Mountaineer is unusual in that it is folded twice, like some greeting cards. When completely unfolded, the printing is all on one side and the other side is blank, so I’ve chosen to make the PDF as if it were a typical single-fold menu.

The table d’hôte menu offers entrées of salmon, cod, steak & kidney saute, omelet, or cold meats for $1 and prime rib, chicken frickasee, or eggs Meyerbeer (eggs and lamb kidneys) for $1.25, all with soup, salad, potatoes, vegetable, dessert, and beverage. The a la carte menu contains many of the same items found in the 1929 Honolulu menu, but at lower prices. This suggests this menu is from the mid-1930s, as the early 1930s experienced severe deflation.
