A full country breakfast is served daily, featuring a frittata of the day, eggs any style with homemade bread and mountain potatoes, Belgian waffles with fruit compote, and old fashioned oats with streusel topping. Breakfast entrees are served with a choice of bacon, sausage, or hash and are complemented with fresh muffins and pastries, fruit, yogurt, and homemade granola from the breakfast bar.

The meal, always of the freshest ingredients, is creatively composed and professionally served.
