Breakfast at the Inn
We offer a hearty breakfast made to order, featuring specialties such as our own home-made granola, seasonal fruit, fresh-baked bread and home-made jam. All dairy products, meat and eggs are from conscientious suppliers who raise their animals thoughtfully and humanely. If you prefer a tofu scramble you’ll find it loaded with local seasonal veggies. Organic, fair-trade Peace Coffee and a selection of organic, fair-trade black, green and herbal teas by Serendipitea are always available.
Maybe it won't be so hard to get out of bed, after all...
We Care About Your Choices
When you make your reservation with the Milkweed Mercantile, we'll be asking you what your dietary preferences are. Vegan? No problem! Allergic to wheat? We've got it covered. And you can rest easy knowing that your plate is filled with foods that were chosen because of their light impact on the earth.
Please let us know ahead of time about any dietary requirements and/or preferences. An increase in meal prices may reflect the cost of more expensive ingredients and more time-consuming preparation.
Our Community Atmosphere
Breakfast is served in our cozy organic café, where you'll dine with other Mercantile guests and the Mercantile staff at our community table. Conversation is guaranteed to be interesting, and you’ll have an opportunity to have your many questions answered. If you’d prefer a more private breakfast, please let us know.
Weather permitting, you'll have the option of eating breakfast on our wraparound porch, overlooking the bustling courtyard at the heart of Dancing Rabbit. And you won't feel left out in the cold in the winter. You can have your breakfast next to our toasty fireplace while wearing your bunny slippers.
We do our best to make every occasion a special one. Please let us know if you have any questions about the food at the Milkweed Mercantile.
What our guests are saying:
“We booked dinner, and were served a wonderful home-cooked meal with pasture-raised ham, fresh vegetables and homemade biscuits. Breakfast was also a knockout.

“The food offerings accommodate all dietary needs without compromising taste and flair.” ~Diane B.
” Food in the morning was delicious…” ~Kyle
“The food here is excellent! Breakfast is made with guests' dietary choices in mind (omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, food allergies, etc.). The conversation at breakfast with the inn keepers and various guests ranged on many topics relevant to sustainability and sharing.” ~Christine D.
“The food was great (we had dinner there one night as well as the full farm breakfasts made to order), the people were great and the concept of an eco B&B was the best!” ~MaryJo and Doug
“The food is varied, exceptional, and plentiful to say the least.” ~Bonnie
“One of the highlights of my stay was… the food that was lovingly prepared and cheerfully served to me throughout the weekend! From the cheesecake, to the tea, and the brunch on Sunday morning...I can't put into words how delicious it was! The eggs were from happy chickens on a local farm, the jam was homemade, as was the butter and the biscuits...truly one of the best breakfasts I have ever eaten.” ~Sara G.
