Bed & Breakfast

  • d

I have never stayed at one of these and more than likely never will. However I always felt that they made some very tasty and unique dishes. Lately I have been looking at various menus and trying some recipes. I have rather mixed emotions about them right now and am not ready to make any comment. What opinions do you have and what personal experience, if any, do you have. Should someone look to this as a resource for good recipes. Thanks

  1. If you've found intriguing recipes prepared by B & Bs, I'd say, sure. Why not? Pat

    1. We stayed in one recently that reportedly used to be a brothel. Had a lot more fun embroidering the story for our church buddies than eating the breakfast which was okay pancakes and sausage.

      1. Try the link below for B and B recipes.


        1. Have stayed in B&Bs all over the country. Much favor them over sterile hotels. Food is undeniably better and there may actually be some charm to the architecture. Grab one of the hundreds of B&B guides out there and try a few out - you won't be disppointed. Not to mention the fact that a number of really good chefs work part time at a few B&Bs, in California more often than not (especially in Wine Country).

          1. Stayed at a B & B in ashland, OR or was it CA I'm not sure it was on the border b/w the two states. Was there for the Shakesphearan festival. It was pretty nice. I would say its good for a getaway for a couple. Breakie is breakie, ain't nothing too special you can get out of it in my opinion unless you are back in Asia. They normally serve eggs, etc. The thing I like about it is that most of their ingredients are fresh which makes it very fulfilling.

            1. re: icecold

              Completely disagree, icecold. I've had some spectacular breakfasts at B&B's. They are like restaurants though...the majority are mediocre. You need to do your research to find the gems.
