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

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

Wandered into the 1661 this morning in search of food and enjoyed an amazing buffet breakfast with beautiful view. Courteous and friendly staff. Excellent food prepared in-house. On the pricier side for breakfast.....but not when you consider the champagne/mimosa and the well-prepared variety of food offered. Pleasantly surprised that there was a gluten-free bread option and whole baked fish. BTW... More

Honeymooned here and returned for our 25th anniversary. Great location. Quiet with beautiful open view. Owner and staff very friendly and accommodating. Great champagne breakfast. Only negative is that our room was somewhat dated. We stayed in the Ball room.

I have to say this is the only place on the island that my picky 6 year old will sit and enjoy her pancakes that are made to order for her their fruit is fresh and when their Garden is in bloom they use fruits and vegetables from the garden to prepare their fresh meals it is absolutely amazing

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.
