Best Breakfast in Williamsburg! Oh Yeah...

So what kind of Breakfast do you get at Colonial Gardens B&B? Well several words come to mind for me but let me share some from our guests.

Amazing, Fabulous, Delicious, Tasty, Scrumptious, Yummy, Delectable, Mouth-watering, Lovely, Wonderful, Magnificent, Superb, Outstanding, Terrific, splendid, Fantastic, Marvelous...... Oh... sorry I was just enjoying the moment...

OK so what makes them so... What they said? a few things, first great ingredients, you just can not get a superior dish with inferior products. We like to use as many local and organic foods that we can get our hands on. We get our eggs from a local source out of Matthews Virginia and I have been known to pic a berry or two in the local area in spring.

It also helps to have good utensils to work with, they are your tools.

Then comes a love of cooking and serving. Everything turns out better when you put love in it! There is nothing like putting a great hot meal in front of appreciative folks.

So lets look at some dishes you will find at Colonial Gardens Bed and Breakfast.

French Crepes - served with a chocolate hazelnut spread, fresh strawberries, and bananas topped with strawberry sauce, a hint of fudge sauce, and whipped cream with baked cream eggs and sausage patties alongside a chocolate-dipped strawberry.

Eggs Benedict - served with homemade hollandaise with homegrown tarragon served with seasonal fruit.

Strawberry and Cream Cheese-stuffed Croissant - drizzled with strawberry sauce and then baked for just enough time to melt the cream cheese and strawberries together... of course, it's served with an egg and meat, but after this who cares?

Lemon Pancake Rolls - these delicate lemon-flavored pancakes are rolled with a mascarpone cheese in the middle and then served with fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup on top. Alongside you will enjoy tarragon-laced scrambled egg and link sausage for a perfect pairing.

Chocolate French Toast with Raspberry Sauce - It really does not get much better than this. Layers of French toast are lightly browned before a fair amount of bittersweet Godiva chocolate is sandwiched between two of them. Once French toast is brought to a perfect golden brown, a homemade raspberry sauce is drizzled over them just before large fresh raspberries are placed on top. Eggs for this dish are baked in cream in the oven to a delicate finish that keeps the egg whole and moist yet done through. Served with triple-thick Smithfield bacon.

So, What do you think? sounds great right? Well here is the best part,if you can not get to the Colonial Gardens bed and Breakfast in Williamsburg for a romantic or otherwise getaway you will still have an opportunity to enjoy a great breakfast. Karen is getting ready to start filming her knew cooking show which will demonstrate how to make some of her amazing breakfast fare. Stay tuned

Happy New Year!

Colonial Gardens is happy to ring in the new year! That means a whole new year of wedding bell possibilities.

We hosted two weddings here last night in front of the Christmas tree. The first elopement took place a 5 pm with Ray and Nancy Dixon. They invited Nancy's two boys and her sister to watch as they exchanged nuptials. After the ceremonies they went on to Opus 9 steakhouse where they enjoyed a "fabulous" dinner. The Bride wore a hand made silk gown that was stunning with crystal straps and accents.

Remember, if you are looking for an intimate venue for your elopement or wedding stick with the Colonial Gardens B&B.
