Heard that this place had great breakfast! Was really disappointed - pricey, no bacon!!! Scrambled eggs had seen better days and the pancakes ran out - staff didn't restock. Save your money & go someplace else

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.
