Award-Winning Breakfasts!


2012 Winner of "Best Breakfast" from Yankee Magazine

Guests have told us that breakfast at Bristol House is one of the highlights of their stay with us! One guest even thanked us for “putting the BREAKFAST” back in Bed & Breakfast!

Our set breakfast menus are highly influenced by local ingredients and by what is in season. We try to incorporate these products whenever possible. In season, we use vegetables from our own garden as well as our neighbor's gardens.  We only use quality ingredients; which is showcased in our homemade granola and sweet breads.  Our gourmet breakfast is something to be savored and usually includes: fruit and/or yogurt with homemade granola or nuts and a speciality cooked entrée.

As our breakfasts are prepared as a "set selection" and not menu service, please let the Innkeeper know if you have any significant dietary restrictions or food allergies PRIOR to your arrival so adjustments can be made to the daily selection.  

Our dining room is set with fine linens and elegant place settings.  When the weather is nice, you may also enjoy your breakfast on our outdoor patio.  

Sample Menu:

Fruit & Pastries
Berry Croustade– delicate puff pastry filled with fresh fruit dusted with vanilla sugar, topped with yogurt & mint
Suzanne’s Buttermilk Biscuits – a tribute to my dear friend Suzanne and our Southern heritage!

Baked Eggs– fresh Rhode Island eggs baked with sun dried tomatoes & topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese & basil served with toast points
Potato Bacon Gratin w/ Roasted Cherry Tomatoes – A rich, creamy potato & bacon dish topped with parmesan cheese and served alongside cherry tomatoes that have been roasted with olive oil until sweet
