People often ask what to expect for their morning meal at our Maine bed and breakfast, and since we don’t have a set menu, breakfast varies greatly! While some bed and breakfasts opt to have a fixed menu or serve a continental breakfast, it just so happens that we are firm believers in a hearty morning meal and we really enjoy eating as well! That means that you can be sure that we will serve up hearty and nutritious morning meals with enough variety for all palates.
And while the morning menu at the Maine Stay Inn changes every day, we make every effort to craft balanced breakfasts that feature sweet, savory, and sinful component. Typically we alternate between sweet and savory entrees, but if you’re not someone who likes to start the day with something sweet, there will still be plenty of options on a day with a traditionally sweet main course. For example, we include eggs and a side of breakfast meat. And sometimes we even include home fried potatoes or a savory bread! Our main goal is really to prepare the highest quality foods in a way that you wouldn’t eat for breakfast at home!
Because Kennebunkport Maine is known for its delicious food, visitors are often concerned that they are going to over do at breakfast. But since we can’t count on pastries to fuel us for the day, we would never do that to you! So even though some of the items on your plate might be indulgent, at our Maine bed and breakfast, we want to provide delicious and nutritious breakfasts, including lots of protein sources, fresh fruits, and healthy carbohydrates as well.
As a hearty eater, I often worry about leaving the table less than satiated, and that’s rarely (if ever) a concern here in Kennebunkport Maine. But since we also always offer homemade vanilla maple granola with dried fruits and nuts, that’s never a concern. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and dairy free meals are some of the frequent restrictions we’re very happy to accommodate and have handled over the years. And while we work hard to provide an equally delicious meal, it might not be an identical preparation. We simply ask you to let us know if you have dietary restrictions, because we’re happy to accommodate your needs, as long as we have a little warning!
Another thing that people wonder about when choosing to stay at a Maine bed and breakfast is who they will be dining with. Fortunately, the Maine Stay is able to accommodate lots of settings and preferences. The main dining room offers family style options, which allows for a traditional bed and breakfast experience and socializing with other visitors. Tables for two on our wraparound porch let guests enjoy some more intimacy while still being waited on during the warmer weather. Some really prefer the most private and intimate dining experience (or a very relaxing breakfast in bed), and any any suite allows guests to have our gourmet breakfast delivered directly to their door to enjoy in the privacy of their own space.
With so many options for breakfast, there really isn’t a “typical” experience at our Maine bed and breakfast!
