Breakfasts

Breakfasts at Lanesboro B&BAn elegantly-set table with a delicious breakfast found nowhere else.  That is our goal.  We put our heart and soul into our breakfast preparation, and we are highly selective about what we serve.  Persian omelet.  Rommegrot.  Shirred eggs.  Tomato basil pie.  Real food made from scratch.  Nothing artificial.

Produce available at our local Farmer’s Market usually determines what is on our breakfast menu, plus what can be harvested from our own garden.  We insist on are that our meats and eggs are genuinely free-range (we know our farmers) and that our fresh produce is organic or locally-grown.

What results is a truly one-of-a-kind breakfast.  Our guest books attest to this.  And if your bodies do not have capacity to enjoy it all at breakfast, we provide small bags for you to take goodies out the door.

Special diets can be accommodated as we are able, including gluten-free and lactose-intolerant.  Please let us know in advance.  Our breakfasts are fine for vegetarians who include eggs and dairy.  We can prepare vegan, but honestly we do not excel at that.

“I was drawn to your inn for its environmental sensibilities…and I’ll come back
for that, but also for the food, the peaceful rooms, proximity to town, the
fabulous food and…the food. Thanks for a great anniversary weekend.” –Sonya | Brainerd, MN

Sample Menus & More:

Many B&B cookbooks have been published.  Our experience is that you can open one to any page, point to an arbitrary recipe, and chances are that it will tell you how to do one of three things:  (1) add sugar to fruit; (2) add sour cream or whipping cream to baked goods; or (3) add sausage and cheese to eggs.  We try to limit that.

We emphasize baking over frying*.  No hydrogenated oils.  No corn syrup.  Real lemon zest.  Fresh, unadulterated fruit.  Real vanilla.  Real butter.  Real maple syrup made by us.  No MSG in anything.  No creatures raised in confined spaces.

The morning begins with coffee or tea served outside your bedroom, one hour before breakfast.
