Breakfast at the Blucher House is quite an affair. Guests have compared it to an elegant dinner party. Served by candlelight amid fresh-cut flowers in the Inn’s beautiful dining room, oftentimes on the Innkeeper’s great grandmother Love’s china or on custom made Italian pottery, along with sterling silver flatware, beautiful stemware and exquisite linens, the Inn’s breakfasts are a multi-course delight. The menu changes daily at the whim of the Innkeeper. The Blucher House uses only the freshest ingredients, vegetables and herbs from the Inn’s organic garden when available, freshly layed eggs from the Inn’s own chickens, fresh creamery butter and extra virgin olive oil.
On weekends and holidays, a scrumptious three-course breakfast is served family style at 9:00 a.m. Always included are orange juice, freshly ground coffee specially roasted and blended for the Blucher House, an assortment of teas, just baked breads and a fruit course. The entrée may be an elegant crepe, a light as a feather quiche, a hearty breakfast casserole, a vegetable frittata, stuffed French toast, a tasty omelet or some other special treat. Breakfast concludes with dessert which may consist of the Inn’s famous Bananas Foster or country style peach cobbler both served with Bluebell ice cream, an apple filled puff pastry, an apple or pear baked in a puff pastry or homemade cinnamon rolls. Guests are asked to gather in the living room or library and wait to be seated until the Innkeeper and her staff have properly prepared the table and lit the candles. Guests will be called to table when everything is perfect!
During the week, a delicious expanded Continental breakfast buffet is served from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. or at a time agreed upon by the Innkeeper and her guests. A fresh fruit platter, freshly baked breads, an assortment of cereals including the Inn’s own homemade granola, yogurt and milk is always available. Oftentimes a protein dish is offered as well such as breakfast link sausage in a puff pastry blanket or a green chili, egg and Monterey Jack cheese puff.
Every effort is made to accommodate individual dietary requirements when at all possible; however, advance notice is very much appreciated so that the Innkeeper and her staff may prepare accordingly.
In the event we happen to be away from the Inn, our staff serves a Continental breakfast on weekends as well. Upon booking your room, we will inform you so that you can make other plans if you so desire.
