For you we serve a full champagne breakfast on old china, silver, and hand-painted Park Avenue crystal, complete with our own Eggs Benedict or homemade Belgian Waffles, fresh fruit and homemade breads, assorted teas, coffee and fresh juice. Breakfast is served in our formal dining room. From the beautiful hand painted crystal glasses and large crystal chandelier, to the spectacular cast iron fireplace, huge sideboard, and original oil painting, the dining room seems to have jumped off an artist's canvas.
