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 served on antique china and silver from the estates of local families. Fresh sourdough bread from scratch is baked daily in our kitchen.
The menu is chef's choice and varies on a daily basis. While we can’t always guarantee a specific dish, we can accommodate special dietary requests - including vegetarian, vegan, low-sugar, and gluten free - with 48 hours advance notice.
