Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast breakfast is presented buffet style. Our staples each morning include homemade granola, steel-cut oatmeal, hard and soft boiled eggs, South African seven grain bread, sun-dried plums in cinnamon orange sauce, cut fresh fruit, and juice. To add variety, we change our quiche daily (alternating chili relleno, tortilla, tomato feta, vegetable, or whatever new, enticing recipe comes our way). We also serve a specialty baked each day, rotating an assortment of muffins with honey bran bundt cake or cranberry nut torte. Every afternoon, our guests may enjoy hot mulled cider—a welcome drink in the chill of the winter—or cool iced tea on a warm summer day, along with home-baked cookies, fresh fruit, crackers, and cheese. As one guest exclaimed, “You know you are in the right place when you walk in the door and are hit by the aroma of cinnamon spiced cider and freshly baked cookies.
Telephones and TVs are excluded to ensure our peaceful enviornment.
