A full gourmet breakfast is served daily with the theme rotating between sweet and savory. The star of the show might be sweet potato pancakes or stuffed French toast topped with seasonal fresh fruit and whipped cream. One might find savory breakfast sandwiches of bacon, basil, tomato and avocado on toasted French bread; parfaits of house-made soft granola, Greek yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, and chopped pecans; creamy, three-cheese scrambled eggs made with fresh eggs from our own Arbor House Inn chickens and seasoned with just-picked herbs from the greenhouse. Piping-hot coffee, a selection of teas and a variety of fruit juices are always on hand to round out the show. Special diets are accommodated as closely as possible when given prior notice.
