The Art of Breakfast

Spiced Poached Pears served chilled with a Maple Cream and our own Purple Basil Pear Sorbet

We consider breakfast a culinary and creative dining experience providing our opportunity to share with you our appreciation of fine food and its ability to provide a harmonious balance of the senses and the first smiles of the day!

The majority of our savory entrees are prepared without the use of breakfast meats (which are offered several days a week as an accompaniment), while our sweet batter based entrees focus on interesting combinations of fresh fruits. We enjoy being creative by using fresh vegetables, local cheeses, fresh berries, local fruit and "just picked" herbs from our garden. We do not repeat any menu item during a guest's stay. And, we offer the choice of a sweet or savory entree each morning.

Our style reflects the use of simple, fresh ingredients

prepared with a touch of sophistication and a bit of whimsy...

Breakfast is served from 8am to 9am in our dining room accented with fresh flowers, crisp linens, contemporary china and fine flatware. Alternatively, many guests prefer to enjoy breakfast on our wrap-around porch overlooking the harbor.

For early risers, we offer a self-serve buffet available by 7:00am

  • Featuring one of the following Freshly Baked Items like Fruit Muffins, Cinnamon Buns or Oat and Cocoa Dusted Almond Bars
  • And, a variety of Teas (herbal and decaffeinated), Hot Cocoas, Lavazza Espresso beans from Italy for fresh-ground Espresso and our own Kingsleigh Blend of Coffee

Breakfast Service begins with the "Breakfast Shot" of the Day

  • A shot of freshly juiced "from the whole fruit or vegetable" with all natural nutrients preserved and no preservatives or additives - an amazing appetite awakening experience. As pictured above, it may be watermelon, pineapple, pear, celery, carrot, cucumber or beet...purely juice, simply amazing served in a Special "K" crystal shot glass. To keep it interesting, we have also added "combo" fruit and veggie shots - think Smoothie Shot - still fresh, fresh, fresh!
