Breakfast & Other Refreshments
In the morning you will enjoy a full breakfast in the Dining Room. Relax - this isn't a formal affair - just good food, good coffee and good conversation. Offerings include freshly baked muffins or scones, fresh fruit and yogurt, and a savory egg-based entree such as souffle, frittata or quiche. You won't leave hungry!
Good, strong coffee is available after 7:00 am and breakfast is served at 9:00 am.
If the daily menu doesn't suit you, we offer a selection of alternatives that accommodate most dietary restrictions and allergies. Almond and soy milks are always on hand. We happily accomodate gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan diets with advanced notice.
Some guests who are hesitant to join a communal breakfast have found that they really enjoy the experience. They have found interesting conversation and like-minded people. For those who don't want to talk, don't worry, let the others carry the conversation and just enjoy the incredible food and coffee.
Guest refrigerators on each floor provide room to store your own items. Tea is always available in the Dining Room, where you will also find homemade cookies, or some other sweet treat, later in the day.
We carry a selection of local wines and craft beers for purchase by the bottle. There are also cork screws, bottle stoppers and wine/pint glasses for your use.
Our guest pantry includes dishes, flatware, cutting boards and basic condiments to help refresh your leftovers or to kick up your picnic dinner or lunch. A microwave is available in the library for any necessary reheating.
