Full Breakfast—Included Free

Breakfast is part of your getaway experience at the inn …. Judy and Robert, the innkeepers,  serve a full breakfast which begins with fresh fruit, juice and coffee/tea followed by hearty main course, such as Elegant Scrambled Eggs, Stuffed French Toast, Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes or or Herbed Baked Eggs with a side of bacon or sausage.

The food focus is on a breakfast which is nice to look at and even better to eat. It’s been called gourmet, but also hearty, “killer” and “to die for.” Guests often linger, sharing a last cup of coffee. The entrée is different daily with alternating breakfast meat on the side.

Our newest dish is a savory egg dish which has tomatoes, pepper, eggs of course, and sausage all in one. Smells heavenly while baking!

If you have special dietary needs or don’t eat breakfast, please let us know when you make your reservation.

Although we’re a B&B, you don’t have to eat breakfast with others if you don’t want to (ask us for a private table in the parlor) or don’t eat it at all (breakfast is included free in the price.)   Continental breakfast tray (fruit cup, muffins, juice, coffee, tea) available by arrangement (reserve the day before).
