The Holladay House Bed and Breakfast serves an elegant two-course breakfast every morning from 8:00am to 9:30am. We are happy to serve an earlier breakfast with prior notice.
We have a variety of recipes that include some old favorites (Sharon makes fantastic French toast), as well as some creative dishes (our signature crustless quiche is delicious, and Sam’s cast-iron frittatas are always crowd-pleasers). When possible, our ingredients are fresh and locally produced, from the locally-roasted coffee to the farm-fresh eggs purchased at the local farmer’s market down the street.
Do not be surprised if you awaken early and see us returning from the Orange County Farmer’s Market with fresh eggs, fruit, and “just-picked” organic fruits vegetables for your enjoyment (such as the local Orange County strawberries shown here)!
