I have stayed at the Pollard Inn Four times now, each visit has been better then the last.
This past trip was so fantastic I just had to write a review. Something I have never done before, but I thought my stay was worthy of it.
The service is fantastic. Michelle and Larry the owners make you feel right at home.
The facility is a late 1800 bank building and the rooms are all decorated differently. I noticed on this trip, new bedding and new antiques in the parlor. The lobby was also freshly remodeled. It must be a hugh undertaking renovating a building like that but the inn keepers keep making it better.
But what prompted this review was the breakfast. It was the best I have ever had. And I don't say that lightly. I am well traveled and have eaten every where from the Waldorf to quaint country inns and the Pollard has them all beat.
The breakfast was that fantastic. If you can't spend the night, call I hear they are going to open the dining room to the public soon.
You eat in the old bank lobby with the ornate safe still in the wall. They call it Megan's although I didn't see a sign. It is actually their daughter's, a cute 12 year old you might find playing the grand piano.
Yes you heard that right, the restauranteur is a 12 year old. But don't let that fool you. The decor is metropolitan and the chairs are so comfy you could spend the night. And all the plate and silver service is modern, clean squares and rectangles, very fun. And all the food is presented very artistically.
Our breakfast was a 5-courses.
First they brought us juice and coffee and almost immediately our first course. They started us with an entertaining cheese assortment. The chef actually came personally to introduce it to us. Followed by fruit that pared with the assortment of cheeses.
Next, was a french toast with some crispy coating served with home made apple syrup. I could have easily had seconds of the french toast and called it a meal. It was the best I have had.
The forth course was the fluffiest omelet I have ever seen. It was served with two types of sliced potatoes and a side tomato salad. It was so excellent, even though I was stuffed I cleaned my plate.
The final course was a bunt cake with espresso.
It was all simply wonderful. Each course led smoothly into the next. Gently waking us. Who would think at one point we would be pouring syrup and the next eating tomatoes but it all worked.
They even refilled my juice several times.
I would give the inn high marks and the restaurant even higher.
Plan a weekend there, you will not regret it. And as mentioned if you can't spend the night at least stop for breakfast. I am sure we will see this girl on the food network soon.
