At Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn, guests dine at individual tables so they may enjoy privacy and relaxation during breakfast. We offer two types of breakfast fare to meet guest needs: either a quick continental breakfast for those in a hurry or a full gourmet breakfast served at individual tables with  fine linen tablecloths and china. For those in our dining room, we try to appeal to all the senses with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the sound of soft music playing in the background. Our rotating menus include breakfast dishes that reflect our effort to present your meal with an artistic, attractive flair and include a first course of fresh fruit and homemade granola.
Our Three Cheese Tart is available some mornings as one of the menu selections during breakfast. It is featured in the Room at the Table cookbook and the recipe is on our blog for those wishing to recreate this savory quiche at home.Our Crème Brulee French Toast is a signature dish that is available on both our rotating breakfast menus. We stuff French bread with homemade crème brulee and then dip each piece in fresh egg batter before cooking and then topping with turbinado sugar. The sugar is caramelized with a kitchen torch to create a memorable and indulgent breakfast entree. Is it a guest favorite!
Nearby Eagle Bend Farm is our source for the farm fresh eggs used in our breakfast dishes. Besides their great flavor, you might also notice a slight change in the color of our dishes since these eggs have the bright yellow yolks that are characteristic of quality farm eggs. We think you will enjoy them as much as we do!We make batches of homemade granola for our breakfast service. It is a the perfect topping for fresh berries and in season fruits.  Several guests have asked us for a copy of the recipe, so we printed complimentary recipe cards that are available on site or you can find the recipe on our blog.
Chocolate-covered strawberries and/or sparkling juice can be added to reservations by request. (Just check our website for current pricing and details.) Cork bottle openers are also available in each guest room for guests who wish to bring their own champagne. Pampering details such as fresh flowers, a seasonal fruit and cheese plate, and other add-on options are available to enhance your stay. Please visit our website for more information.
