What, No Omelets?

One of the many pleasures of a Bed and Breakfast in most parts of the world is the “cooked” breakfast. Not so on Nantucket where local Health Department laws are very restrictive for almost all B&Bs (one notable exception is the Union Street Inn which was licensed for a “commercial kitchen” before the law was passed). By regulation the vast majority of innkeepers on Nantucket can’t serve eggs, meats, or foods which might spoil, regardless of how they are prepared. Rumor has it this restriction was approved by the Town as a favor to the restaurant lobby. But Nantucket innkeepers can do magic with a “continental” breakfast.

At the Sherburne Inn we aim to please you with breakfast in bed.

Sherburne Inn breakfast basket

Susan’s famous picnic basket breakfast is placed outside your doorway each morning so you can get your motor started in a relaxed fashion. Guests are delighted to discover seasonal fresh fruit and yogurt, juices, a variety of home baked coffee cakes, breads and muffins. Our popular Kuerig machine provides a variety of coffees, teas and cocoa. If you would prefer to eat this breakfast in one of our two parlors or outside in our garden, rather than in your room, the basket is very easy to carry.

Most guests find that our continental breakfast is just the right size on a morning following a Nantucket dining-out experience, but if you would prefer a hot breakfast there are a number of wonderful choices within a five minutes walk including: Black Eyed Susans (our favorite), Fog Island Cafe, Arnos, and Even Keel.

Does lingering in bed over a leisurely breakfast while you are on vacation sound as good to you as it does to us?
