Some of the great breakfast selections are: The breakfast Steemed Pod, Scrambled eggs, Bacon, Spinich and Cheddar cheese with Pickeled slaw. If you like Steak and Eggs as a breakfast you will love the savory Vegetable Goat Chees Frittata.  Served with Herb-Crusted Beef and Chimichurri along with Pork Shoulder, Potato Hash with Chorizo Sausage and Natural Jus. How about somthing a little healther and not as hearty, you can go with either the Steel-Cut Oatmeal, Steel-cut Oats, topped with Caramelized Brown Sugar, Bourbon-soaked Raisins, Marcona Almonds and Goji Berries. This item is prepared with alcohol and can only be ordered by Guests 21 years of age or older. Another option would be the Fresh Fruit Plate.

It is Cinnamon french toast with a Blueberry Cream Cheese Dollop, Passion Fruit Anglaise and Pork Sausage.
