CHARRED OAKS INN BREAKFAST
“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.” John Gunther, American writer and journalist.
Scrumptious full gourmet breakfasts!
It’s all about choices …
Breakfast at Charred Oaks is a real treat and the inn’s menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the best Kentucky has to offer year round. Pamela and Richard believe it is all about choices – breakfast dishes are prepared from scratch each and every day! We pride ourselves on creatively accommodating guests’ dietary preferences by providing vegetarian, vegan, or gluten/dairy free options when notified at the time of booking.
Guests enjoy so many options for our incredible breakfast dining at Charred Oaks Inn:
Option One - Breakfast Lite Available from 7:30AM til 10:00AM
For guests who prefer a “lite” start to their day, who need to get out and about early, or who want to sleep in until the last snooze alarm goes off, Breakfast Lite is the perfect choice for them.
Stocked with yogurts, fresh fruit, homemade granola, baked oatmeal bars (a Charred Oaks specialty) and/or one of Pamela’s daily fresh pastries, not only is it nutritious, but it’s easy as well – with handy “to go” supplies.
Option Two - Chef’s Choice or Breakfast Made-to-Order Available from 8:00AM til 9:30AM
Our Made-to-Order Breakfast is graciously served in the inn’s bright and beautifully decorated dining room set up to allow for maximum privacy with luxury table linens, fine china and gorgeous glassware. Fresh flowers, flickering candle lights and soft music enhance the breakfast experience and help get the day off to a relaxing start or if they prefer, guests can eat outside on the patio (weather permitting).
Option Three - Breakfast in Bed Served 8:00AM -9:30AM
Guests can choose to pamper themselves or someone special with a thoughtfully prepared breakfast of their choice from either the Breakfast Lite menu or the Chef’s Choice Breakfast. Their breakfast will be brought to their room on a tray set with gleaming tableware, sparkling stem ware and fresh flowers.
