Awaken to the aroma of our own blend of coffee…..For you, we serve a full champagne breakfast on old china, sterling silver, and crystal.

Today you might have crepes stuffed with crab, creamed eggs and cheese topped with sour cream. Tomorrow may be Citrus Belgian Waffles topped with whipping cream and fresh berries, or perhaps our "Breakfast Flower" quiche filled with a blend of cheeses, vegetables and herbs picked from our herb gardens. Breakfast is served in our formal dining room. From the beautiful hand painted crystal glasses and large crystal chandelier, to the spectacular cast iron fireplace, huge sideboard, and original oil painting, the dining room seems to have jumped off an artist's canvas. Weather permitting, guests may also enjoy breakfast alfresco in the English gardens or on the private deck. Brick paths, fountains, benches and iron tables are hidden among flower gardens giving a feeling of rural isolation in a thriving urban environment.
