We went to the B&B for breakfast, anticipating a pleasant event. It wasn't nearly up to expectations. We had the Sunrise Special (scrambled eggs on a split croissant). Eggs clearly had been microwaved which can make them tough. The croissant was not house-made, not nearly...More

It was an enjoyable place. The sandwich was good; the mushroom brie soup was out-of-this-world fantastic. Wish I had the recipe. The turkey on the sandwich was ok, not great. It did not look like it had been roasted in-house. The avocado was brilliant and...More
