We take breakfast seriously at the Hummingbird Inn! Included with your stay is a full country breakfast served each morning in our Dining Room. A yummy nibble for your coffee may be found on the Tea & Coffee Bar prior to breakfast. Guests often take this to their favorite spot to enjoy alone or with others. At 9:00 am we serve a seated two-course breakfast that typically starts with seasonal fresh fruit, our famous yogurt parfaits with house-made granola, or Jeff’s delicious crepes! In the winter we include warm starters such as broiled grapefruit, baked apple and cranberry gratin or oatmeal creme brulee. The main course is hearty and may be sweet, savory or a little of both. Our most popular main courses include spinach and tomato frittata, Southwest egg bake, salmon quiche, eggs Florentine, eggs Benedict, roasted herb potatoes, crispy hash browns, seasonal French toast, cherry griddle cakes or Jeff’s French pancakes served with Virginia ham, oven roasted local bacon or grilled local sausage. Our eggs are organic non-gmo, delivered weekly from Bells Valley Farm just up the road from us!
All dietary restrictions are accommodated with advance notice. We make wonderful tofu scrambles with grilled vegetables or a Quinoa Hash for our vegan guests; please let us know at the time of your reservation so we may purvey fresh ingredients for your dietary needs.
