Description: Memorial Day through Columbus Day the 1661 Inn serves its renowned full champagne buffet breakfast each morning. The breakfast buffet features an omelet station, homemade corned beef hash, eggs, pancakes or french toast and a whole lot more! During the quieter seasons, a smaller version of our buffet is available as well. For the 2016 summer season, we will be introducing a small appetizer menu, desserts and flaming coffees at the new 1661 bar starting at 5:00pm.

“Gorgeous Views and Good Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

There is an omlette bar and a wide assortment of breakfast items. Prices are reasonable. I would like to see more lunch items and am willing to pay more to have a greater assortment.

“Great breakfast awesome view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We really enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfast and beautiful view! It was a short walk from where were staying at on water street. Would definitely consider staying here next time to Block Island.

“Flaming Coffees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Take the time and schedule in the flaming coffees in the "parlour" at the Hotel Manissess. Great way to spend the evening to finish off a wonderful meal~

“Flaming coffees!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We only went to the parlor (called the upstairs parlor but it's on street level - the dining area is down in the back by the yard/fountain) for the flaming coffees and weren't disappointed. Desserts and coffees were superb and it's just a fun experience to see! Yeah, it allows them to charge $10 for a coffee, but the liquor in it was more than a generous pour, and it's a unique experience.

“Really Lovely Dinner In the Garden!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This was my favorite meal on Block Island. Like most higher end places here, the prices are quite high, but the food and atmosphere were excellent. We ate in the garden, which was great for the kids. The service was reasonably fast and the staff was incredibly nice and patient as we relocated about three times!
