Awaken to the aroma of our own blend of coffee..... For you, we serve a full champagne breakfast on old china, sterling silver, and crystal, gently lit by candles, wall sconces and the beautiful crystal chandelier above your head. Today, you might have puff pastry stuffed with crab, creamed eggs and cheese topped with sour cream. Tomorrow may be Citrus Belgian Waffles topped with whipping cream and fresh berries, or perhaps our own Eggs Benedict with fresh herbs picked from our garden and a luscious hollandaise sauce. All are accompanied with fresh fruit, assorted teas, coffee and fresh juice.
Weather permitting; you may enjoy the beginning of your day with breakfast in the beautiful gardens. For you early risers, hot beverages are available on all floors 24 hours a day, and usually available downstairs about 7:30 a.m. Breakfast is served 9:00 every morning, except Sundays and holidays at 9:30. Please feel free to take a cup into one of the sitting rooms, or gardens, and enjoy the serenity of the Bed and Breakfast.
We try to alternate our menus to sweet one day and savory the next, always taking our guests dietary needs into consideration. Not to worry if you are celiac, vegan or vegetarian. Just let us know when you make your reservation!
Can't make breakfast because you have a meeting or plane to catch - don't worry. Just let us know a day in advance and we will have our "Packed to Go Breakfast" placed outside your door the evening before for you to take on your trip. It includes a freshly baked item, fruit or yogurt, and breakfast bar or juice to be sure that you feel energized as you start your day.
Coffee & Tea are available 24 hours, including cookies in the Waterford Cookie Jar and candies in the large Martini Glass in the front salon. Spring and Summer brings pitchers of Herbal Iced Tea and Mint infused Lemonade; In Fall and Winter enjoy a cup of organic Chai, some Hot Mulled Cider or a Hot Cocoa!
In the evening, guests may enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or cordial with other guests at the Mansion. At times, we prepare some picky treats as a compliment to our offered aperitifs. Kathy's basil, feta and tomato bruschetta is a guest favorite during the summertime!
During Fall, Winter and Spring (October 16 through April 1), Park Avenue Mansion now offers a five-course pre-select dinner.
Why concern yourself with driving on icy roads or white outs in the snow? Why risk a "DUI" after enjoying a good bottle of wine with your dinner? "Stay inn, Dine inn", and with the kitchen on standby, you can be "seated" at your convenience between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Imagine ambling downstairs with a glass of wine in hand and allowing the comfortable, laid back ambiance of the Inn do the rest.
