What a way to start your day! Don't miss the brunch at 1661. The food is great and you can't beat the scenery. We enjoyed meeting other visitors while our two young sons played on the lawn and swing set.

Great place to have breakfast, or dinner, the dining room overlooks the Atlantic. 1661, is close to downtown, so is easily walkable, if you decide to drive, there is ample parking.

Thank you for your review and we were glad to see that you enjoyed the location! We serve breakfast year-round (during the season it is our full champagne buffet breakfast and during the quiet season it is a bit more limited, but still a full breakfast!). We do not serve lunch or dinner at any time during the year. From... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable brunch here. Champagne brunch for $21.95 is a pretty good value on the island or anywhere. Champagne and mimosas are included. Eggs and omelets are made to order in the kitchen and then brought out to the table. There was corn-beef hash, ham, fish, muffins, french toast, and fruit among other items.... More

A buffet is not always easy to pull off, and breakfast food is even more difficult. However, I was very impressed with the breakfast buffet at the 1661. The ocean view itself was worth the trip. We were immediately seated upon arrival and served a carafe of coffee. The server also took our order for any eggs or omelets which... More

A simple breakfast buffet with made to order omelets. Food was delicious. Loved that they used fresh vegetables and herbs from their gardens.

Breakfast was included in our rental rate for the Dodge Cottage. Must say I am not s big breakfast person, but I get very hungry on vacation. This breakfast buffet has something for everyone. Made to order eggs/omelet. Fresh fruit, champagne or mimosas. Plus bread, bagels, sausage, fish, ham, bacon, home fries. Too much to go on about. You will... More

We stayed 2 nights at the 1661 Inn and were excited for the full champagne breakfast we had read about. It did not disappoint! They have an attentive hostess and numerous staff. In fact, in general this inn has a lot of seasonal staff always at the ready to be helpful. Omelettes made to order and brought to the table... More

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.
