Food & Wine
As part of the hospitality at the Thomas Shepherd Inn B&B in Shepherdstown, WV, we are pleased to offer you a full breakfast in the morning along with beverages and biscotti for early risers. Our full breakfasts consist of a fruit course, an entree with breakfast meat, and baked goods and are 'cook's choice'; we don't have a buffet or 'cooked to order' menu options.
To help us prepare a breakfast you will enjoy, please tell us when booking of ANY dietary restrictions you may have. Many of our breakfasts are casserole-style creations that cannot be changed before serving but can be adapted if we know of any problems before your arrival! Dietary restrictions include things like no sugar, gluten-free, allergies to wheat, eggs or dairy, religious restrictions on pork and shellfish, no meat for vegetarians, etc. We do our best to prepare a delicious breakfast for all of our guests. There are times, however, when we cannot meet all dietary restrictions - in that case, we have cereal, homemade low-fat, low-sugar granola and yogurt available for you.
Guests have recently enjoyed homemade pine nut/golden raisin muffins and hot apple soup with a broccoli cheddar frittata and local bacon; another morning's menu consisted of yogurt muffins and baked pears with blueberry-pecan French toast and local sausage..
Our breakfasts are typically served at large tables in two dining rooms (each seats six guests) from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. but if your schedule requires special arrangements please let us know and we'll do our best to work with you.
