Breakfast at Simplicity

Fresh breakfast served daily

Guests enjoy a hearty, hand-made, two-course country gourmet breakfast each morning from our kitchen. We will have a private table set for you and the number of persons in your party.

Breakfast is different every day and varies with the seasons. And, of course, your choice of fresh-brewed, organic coffee or hot tea and juice is included.

Special Dietary Needs

We have choices for everyone

Are you vegan or vegetarian or have special dietary needs? We have good news and we have bad news.

The Good News: While our Valle Crucis bed and breakfast is not a vegan, vegetarian, or certified-organic dining establishment, we are pro-organic, pro-vegan, and pro-vegetarian, and we get where you are coming from. We really do, and we both understand and care. That means that if persons in your party are vegan or vegetarian, we can prepare special vegan-vegetarian meals. If you have other special dietary needs or allergies we can address those needs as well, sometimes for free, sometimes not.

The Bad News: It’s not always a free service. We prepare for and are geared to preparing a regular meal plan which meets the needs of the majority of our guests, and shifting gears to prepare for a special diet requires significantly more preparation, work, and more costly ingredients.

We also need some notice in order to assure that we design meals for the duration of your stay which are in harmony with your culinary philosophy, needs and remain gourmet delicious. We will ask you about any special dietary needs when you reserve and in our confirmation email. The best way to assure this gets taken care of properly is to call the front desk at 828-963-5857 at least a week prior to your arrival. The current supplement over regular rates for Vegan-Organic and Special Dietary Breakfasts is $5 per person per breakfast.
