We use fresh in-season ingredients, meats and produce from local farms. Coffee and tea are out on the sideboard around 8am and guests are encouraged to get a cup to enjoy anywhere inside or out. If you're an early riser, just let us know and we'll put it out earlier. Your breakfast will start with coffee, tea, and your choice of orange, cranbery, or apple juice. We start with a fruit course, depending on what is freshest - it could be a mixed fruit parfait, melon with honey orange sauce, a fruit crumble, slushie, or a banana foster, served with a home-made muffin.
Following the fruit is the main course. Arcady alternates between a sweet and a savory dish. One day could be our banana macadamia nut pancakes, french toast or waffles with local farm sausage, the next could be herb scrambled eggs or an egg bake with oven roasted rosemary potatoes and local organic bacon.
