No one stays at a bed-and-breakfast for a boring hotel breakfast. We use garden-grown herbs and in-house recipes to create meals you'll want to wake up for.
Breakfasts at the 1899 Inn are served daily in the formal dining room, which gets direct morning sunlight through east-facing bay windows. Meals are usually served on antique silver from the estates of local families.
The menu varies on a daily basis and is chef’s choice. While we can’t always guarantee a specific dish, we can often accommodate advance requests. The chef can work with special diets (including vegetarians, vegans, low-sugar, and gluten free) with 48 hours advance notice.
Baked French Toast. Our signature dish. It has a creamy bread pudding texture with a buttery crunchy topping. Served with pork sausage and fresh fruit.
Ham and Swiss Frittata with Parmesan Crust. This creamy quiche-like dish is a guest favorite. Served with organic nine-grain toast and fresh fruit.
Lavender-Poached Pears with Yogurt, Granola & Honey Drizzle. Anjou pears poached with a blend of lavender and ginger, topped with vanilla bean yogurt, granola, and drizzled with Montana honey. Served with fresh-baked croissants, house bread, seasonal jellies, assorted cheeses, charcuterie, and fresh fruit.
Omelets. Made to order. Ingredient choices vary, but usually include bell pepper, spinach, mushrooms, onions, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and ham. Seasonal vegetables and cheeses may also be available. Served with organic nine-grain toast and fresh fruit.
Biscuits and Gravy. Fresh-baked made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits served with our own pork sausage gravy. Served with fresh fruit and eggs to order.
Breakfast Burritos with Colorado Green Chili. Scrambled eggs, fried diced potatoes, onions, peppers, and pork sausage in a flour tortilla, topped with a homemade chili made from roasted hatch chiles and pork country ribs. Served with salsa, fresh fruit, and organic nine-grain toast.
Most dishes are garnished with fresh-cut herbs from the house kitchen garden.
Breakfast is served with a wide selection of teas and hand-ground locally-roasted drip coffee. Assorted fruit juices are available on request.
Teas and Starbucks Via instant coffee are available 24 hours a day in the dining room at the fast-boil electric kettle.
