Bed and breakfasts are notorious for their scrumptious AM offerings, and our Picks will point you to a mouth-watering compilation of recipes you can expect to find at inns around the world.
- Some B&B owners post their breakfast recipes online for guests to enjoy back at home. You can also e-mail the owners for a recipe; unless it's a top-secret family formula, they will most likely be happy to oblige.
- As is evident by the name, most B&Bs offer breakfast with each overnight stay. Many places offer two breakfasts, one for early risers and one for everyone else. Breakfast is usually served buffet-style and occasionally the meal is sit-down. Check the Web site of the B&B you plan to visit for meal times and a breakfast menu.
- Vegetarians interested in visiting a bed and breakfast should e-mail the innkeeper ahead of time to give them a heads up. Most B&Bs have a plethora of recipes from which to draw and finding veggie dishes should not be a problem. Check out the Web sites listed under this guide's "What if I need special accommodations?" section.
- Innkeepers sometimes invite their guests to make special meal requests. If you find this to be true with your B&B, visit their Web site to submit an online request form, or shoot them a quick e-mail request before you arrive.
- The Cooking News delivers a tempting article on recipes for best B&B breakfasts. How does Crème Brule French Toast sound?
