A traditional Southern breakfast featuring Louisiana-inspired recipes is included in your bed and breakfast room rate. A rotating-menu buffet is set out daily – guests may not order particular items off of a menu. Upon request, with advance notice, special dietary needs are accommodated (please inform us of special needs when you make your reservation).
Breakfast is served from 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. for our travelers during the week. On the weekend, breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m. It is helpful for the cook to know your breakfast time so that the food is hot and fresh.
Breakfast is served in the lovely breakfast room of antiques featuring John Gould hummingbird prints, botanical prints from the Temple of Flora collection by Robert John Thornton and antique collectible menus. Though Breakfast is the only meal served daily, the Dining Room can be reserved for luncheons, meetings and private dinner parties.

Grits and Grillades
Like many of the recipes in South Louisiana, “grits and grillades” was introduced by the Creole people. The French and Spanish settlers brought their own styles of cooking and blended them with local crops to create dishes as hot and sultry as the Louisiana nights. “Grillades” (pronounced gree-yahds) is a dish consisting of rich, dark gravy with braised meat served over creamy, garlic cheese grits: the Creoles served it for midday brunch or late night suppers after their elaborate balls. The grillades are meant to cook for a long time until the meat is so tender that you can cut it with a fork. Bon appetit, and as we say in South Louisiana, “laissez les bon temps rouler” (let the good times roll)!
