Breakfast at Brook Farm Inn
Our guests try to resist our Berkshire Breakfast
Start your day with our sumptuous Berkshire breakfast buffet, starting at 8:30 and ending at 10:00. It’s always a healthy, Berkshire breakfast with low sugar, good protein, and locally sourced flavors.
You’ll wake to the aroma of coffee being ground for early risers. When breakfast begins, sample one of Angela or John’s legendary dishes … perhaps Spinach/Mushroom Baked Eggs or Almond meal buttermilk pancakes. Or, maybe breakfast will be White Cheddar and Dijon baked eggs, a frittata, Eggs Scrambled with Boursin and Salmon, or Cinnamon Baked French Toast with local Maple syrup or fruit sauce. Sometimes we’ll make a treat we’ve learned from our trip to Greece or a German breakfast favorite. We thrill our guests with Strawberry Scones made with fresh strawberries and ricotta, “Bernie Who” Cake, or Honey Lavender Scones. We feature breads from the Berkshire Mountain Bakery and freshly squeezed orange juice as one choice. Each day, we serve creamy Greek yogurt with Bola Granola as well as Irish Oatmeal with a variety of toppings: slightly toasted walnuts, organic banana chips, organic raisins, and cinnamon. Fresh fruits abound, sometimes served as fruit salad and sometimes on a platter so you can choose!
On Saturdays, during the summer, we continue the tradition of bagels and lox with all the delicious garnishes (like heirloom tomatoes) and cream cheeses.
Because John is a coffee snob and hopes you are, too, we grind coffee beans freshly roasted by No. Six Depot Coffee Roastery. Because Angela likes tea, we serve at least eight varieties of Harney Tea.
The staff will be on hand to refill your coffee cup and suggest interesting ideas for your day in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Our buffet always includes options for vegetarian guests. We do our best to accommodate special dietary needs and always have gluten free options and a variety of non-dairy milk.
Have Afternoon Tea at the Inn
Come back to us for afternoon tea Friday and Saturday at 4:00, served in the spacious library. Sit in front of the fireplace with a cup of freshly brewed Earl Grey tea, and indulge in delicious scones we bake for you. You’ll be refreshed and ready for your evening out at a concert, theater performance, or one of the area’s fine restaurants.
Bed and Breakfast Guest Pantry
Our guest pantry provides two small refrigerators, an ice machine, and a Keurig machine for coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Raid our cookies jar and help yourself to mugs, silverware, and wine glasses. Plan a picnic at one of the umbrella-shaded tables in our delightful garden, or have a midnight snack any time!
