Took some friends to the Inn for brunch/lunch on our way from Rochester to Ithaca (not too much out of the way and well worth it) last Sat. This was our 5-6th time, but their first. The service was first rate and food is always well-prepared and dee-LISH! Among us, we had an omelet, chicken and biscuits, lemon ricotta pancakes/oatmeal-encrusted french toast (the waitress suggested this 1/2 and 1/2 order which thrilled my wife who couldn't decide between the two) and I had the crab cake Eggs Benedict with green chile hollandaise sauce. Along with the winter's view of Cayuga Lake and a couple Bloody Marys made for a very nice lunch. Thanks!
P.S. We previously have stayed at the E.B. Morgan House (down the road a little, but still part of the Inn) which was delightful. Beautiful, quiet, well-appointed rooms and an excellent caretaker/concierge who took care of everything.
