The Breakfast Experience
Home > Culinary Experience > The Breakfast Experience
No other experience brings you that elusive thing we call home as quickly as waking up to the warm and comforting aromas of breakfast. Coffee being freshly ground and sweet and savory delights vying for your nose’s attention; you know that something wonderful awaits your arrival at the breakfast table. Any possibility might exist. You may be surprised with fresh scones with homemade jams, gnocci with fresh herbs, a 3” high savory custard, or perhaps a French crepe, an Italian fritatta, or a Spanish Tortilla. No matter the experience, you can be assured that the Innkeepers of The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild take Breakfast very seriously.
There is nothing like the taste of cold fresh apple cider made from organic apples that have ripened in our orchard during the hot sultry days of summer. The fruit is hand picked and the juice is extracted in an old fashioned apple press. Nothing is added, the taste is naturally sweet and we serve this at our breakfast table. Imagine spreading home made plum jam on a hot buttered English muffin. We make our jam from several varieties: Damson, Italian and wild plums. The taste is ambrosia. We also serve our pears, blackberries and blueberries in season with Belgium hazelnut waffles and 10 grain pancakes. Our abundance of fruit will make your breakfast a delightful experience here at the McKenzie River Inn.
Enjoy a hearty, savory breakfast of Northwest delicacies in our dining room, on the patio or delivered to your room. Though our menu changes with the season, you can expect a fresh-baked pastry or fruit dish: blueberry scones, baked apples, or baked ginger pears to start your breakfast, followed by an entree of perhaps Broccoli/Mushroom Quiche, Italian Frittata, Orange French Toast, or Apple/Pecan Crepes. Fresh homemade granola, yogurt, and fresh fruit are always available. Being a member of the Hood River Organics Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group we are able to serve locally grown, organic foods. And, of course, plenty of coffee, tea, and juice. Enjoy a cup of steaming hot coffee in the gardens. Step out and sample the fresh plums or raspberries from the patch out in the garden …a perfect way to start your day!
The Pfeiffer Cottage Inn
Specializing in local sustainable practices is the goal when planning our meals here at my inn as well as most inn's around The Willamette Valley. Some of us have the pleasure of being poised in the middle of the most fertile land in the county. Sitting high among the hills in wine country, resting in our nests amid hazelnut orchards or placed perfectly downtown in a town where "food" is the "word!" Yes, it's all about the beauty of the feast. Where can we go to find that perfect meal? Innkeepers say...right here...in Oregon!
