Sweet Stuffed Crepe Cigars Voted Best B&B Breakfast


Caramel Apple Bacon French Toast Takes Second in BedandBreakfast.com’s Third-Annual Best B&B Breakfast Recipe Challenge

AUSTIN, TX (April 14, 2014 ) – A contest that would satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth, the BedandBreakfast.com® Best B&B Breakfast Tournament was a showdown of “sweets to beat,” with Sweet Stuffed Crepe Cigars from Open Gates Bed & Breakfast in Darien, GA winning top honors for best B&B breakfast in North America.

BedandBreakfast.com’s Facebook® fans selected the Caramel Apple Bacon French Toast from Farmers Guest House in Galena, IL as their close second favorite.

Rounding out the Foodie Four were the Blueberry Stuffed Puffed Pastry from The Oaks Victorian Inn in Christiansburg, VA and Banana Stuffed Cinnamon French Toast from Marshall Slocum Inn in Newport, RI.

“This year’s ‘Sweets to Beat’ contest highlighted some of the culinary treats that B&B innkeepers and chefs love to serve their guests,” said Matt Laessig, general manager of BedandBreakfast.com. “Breakfast is the signature amenity of bed and breakfasts and our annual best B&B breakfast contest featured the best of the best.”

“I am so grateful and overwhelmed by the gratitude of my family and friends support around the world,” says Zachariah Rath, Open Gates Bed & Breakfast innkeeper and owner. “The Sweet Stuffed Crepe Cigars recipe takes me back to sailing the high seas of the Caribbean from Grenada, to the markets of St. Martin, and the cigar shops in St. Barts.”

For the third year in a row, BedandBreakfast.com’s Best B&B Breakfast Tournament contest worked in brackets, much like the NCAA Basketball®’s March Madness®, with BedandBreakfast.com’s Facebook® fans voting on their favorites.

This year, breakfast dishes with fruit were fan favorites, with nearly all of the Indulgent Eight finalists featuring blueberries, strawberries or bananas.

The Sweet 16 finalists were chosen based on recipe creativity, uniqueness and appeal by guest judges including Anne Banas, SmarterTravel.com; Genevieve Shaw Brown, ABC News; Adrien Glover, Travel + Leisure; and Larry Olmsted, USAToday.com Great American Bites columnist.
