Every morning we prepare fresh brewed coffee that has been sustainably grown and locally roasted. Help yourself to our continental offerings that always include our creatively prepared fresh fruit, homemade granola, yogurt, milk, almond milk, fresh baked breads, muffins or scones, homemade jams and preserves, fresh whipped butters and juices. Some additional items could include creative deviled eggs, mini fritatas, and more.

We appreciate all food preferences and are happy to alter our dishes to make them vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy free whenever possible.

Made with Fresh Local Ingredients

IMG_6586Each morning we offer a different uniquely-composed dish cooked to order. We know our guests have active days ahead so we do try and keep the dishes lighter and healthier while still offering full flavored, satisfying entrees.

This is where our local ingredients have the opportunity to shine and where we get to put twists on traditional favorites.

The possibilities on our sweet days might be:

  • Blueberry lemon mascarpone pancakes with almond milk panna cotta and pure Maine maple syrup
  • or gingerbread waffles with bourbon compound butter and buttermilk syrup

On savory days you might be served:

  • farm fresh eggs Benedict on a lobster cake with tarragon hollandaise sauce with a tomato salad picked that morning from our garden
  • a local mushroom omelet with crispy farmer’s market fingerling potatoes dressed with a mint and walnut pesto
  • or maybe a hash that includes potatoes, parsnips, arugula and smoked duck topped with 2 sunny-side eggs.
