The Inn - Breakfast
Wake up each morning to the aroma of a freshly prepared gourmet breakfast. Served in the formal dining room, you will be treated to our favorite local and regional fare featuring organic and/or local ingredients, such as Taylor’s Sausages and Café Mam coffee whenever available.
For your enjoyment we do a savory breakfast (see smoked salmon casserole recipe) one day, followed by a sweet breakfast (see baked cheese blintz casserole or cream caramel toast) the next. Of course, our breakfast always starts with fresh fruit, juice, coffee or tea. If you have special dietary requirements, please let us know well in advance, and we will make an effort to accommodate you.
Enjoy our complimentary hot and cold beverages and munch on fresh baked cookies – anytime!

Layer the toasts on top of it and make 2 layers.
Mix eggs, milk and ½ and ½ and pour on top. Refrigerate overnight.

Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with the cinnamon, nutmeg and the dark brown sugar. Dot with the butter cubes.
Place in the preheated oven and bake about 1-1/2 hours until set. Allow to cool at least 30 minutes before cutting.
For the sauce:
Melt the butter over low heat. When it’s hot but not colored, add the confectioners’ sugar and whisk constantly until thick.
