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.

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...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...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.
