Our Breakfast

Our Inn motto is "Our home is your home  away from home." Our breakfast pampers you, yet provides a healthy, and hearty homemade feast. Awaken to freshly brewed coffee. The fragrance of homemade muffins, coffeecakes, and bread baking fills the air; followed by savory scents such as homemade sausage and sausage and egg casseroles.  While these bake, we patiently prepare the opener - a fresh fruit cup of tiny morsels of every possible fruit flavor topped with a dollop of creamy vanilla yogurt and a wedge of kiwi, strawberry, or the fruit of our choice. Each recipe provides flavor and nutrition, as most recipes are low fat, yet tasty. As you dine, you have the opportunity to interact with those staying here with you. We promise good food and good fun at the Dutch Colonial Inn.
