Food & Wine
La Farge Perry House prides itself in its gourmet complimentary breakfast for guests. All of our ingredients are fresh and locally sourced. Our innkeeper Paula attends weekly Aquidneck Growers Markets for fresh ingredients all year long that are grown or produced within 50 miles. These ingredients help make up the daily, complimentary breakfast dishes created each morning for our guests. Unique, popular New England breakfast favorites include fresh eggs, blueberry pancakes, vegetable hash, brioche french toast, avocados, fresh fruits, hearty seasonal muffins, greek yogurt and much more.
Guests have access to sitting in our gardens and wrap around front porch in the summer and by the fireside in the family room off the large kitchen or elegant living room in the winter. Many a guest has been found tip-toeing down the stairs for a chocolate chip cookie at midnight.
Every afternoon from 4 p.m. - 5 p.m., we give guests the opportunity to meet our innkeeper. During this hour, guests can enjoy complimentary local wines from Newport Vineyards with assorted cheeses and crackers. 'Welcome Hour' is located in the front parlor of the inn and open to all guests
