The Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast serves an elegant delicious gourmet breakfast each morning in the dining room, between 8:30 and 10 a.m. Breakfast is 4-courses: beginning with an artistic fruit arrangement, freshly baked bread, which is followed by a full savory or sweet entree, and ends with a dessert.  A continental or a “to go” breakfast is also available for our early departures.

We are happy to serve an earlier breakfast with prior notice. Please let us know about your own dietary requirements, and we will happily create a breakfast you can enjoy!  Should you wish to invite a guest to breakfast, we will simple add $15 to your bill.

The specialty Ellwanger Estate blend coffee is freshly ground and brewed.  Coffee and tea is always available.

Picture this: White tablecloths are illuminated by soft candlelight as you are presented an award winning, thoughtful breakfast dish, such as french toast bread pudding with spiced pears or spicy sausage vegetable quiche. In season, the peaches and pears grown on the property grace the table in the elegantly appointed dining room. 

We have a variety of recipes that include some old favorites, as well as some more creative dishes. To every extent possible, locally grown foods and products are served…pear butter from on site pear trees, farm fresh eggs from free-range chicken (Eloise and her sister hens), garden fresh fruits and vegetables.  Do not be surprised if you awaken early and see us returning from the Farmer’s Market (every Saturday) with fresh fruit, and “just-picked” organic vegetables for your enjoyment!

We have a variety of recipes for many special diets, and often have created special breakfasts for:

  • Low-Carb diets
  • Low-Cholesterol diets
  • Celiac diets (Gluten-free or Wheat-Free)
  • Fructose Intolerant diets
  • Food allergies (nuts, strawberries, eggs, cheese, shellfish, etc.)
  • Lactose Intolerant diets
  • Vegetarian diets (including Ovo-Lacto, Lacto, Ovo, and Vegan)

Let us know about your own dietary requirements and food dislikes, and we will happily create a breakfast you can enjoy!
