A full gourmet breakfast buffet is served each morning in the inn dining room from 8:45 AM to 10 AM offering a delicious variety of choices for our guests.

Four dishes hot from the ovens of the inn kitchen often include a variety of quiches, twice-baked red potatoes, yeast rolls or biscuits, and coffee cake with fresh fruit. The rolls, biscuits, coffee cakes, and quiche crusts are all made from organic flour using heirloom recipes producing wonderful delectable treats. These are the signature dishes of the Turtle Rocks breakfasts.

Sometimes layered egg and cheese-based casseroles called “Strata” are substitued for the quiche as well as another heirloom gem, a Ukrainian dumpling called “varenyky” similar to the German “pierogi”.
