The Reynolds Mansion aims to provide guests with ample opportunity and variety to enjoy the pleasures of the table. We are committed to using the freshest local and regional ingredients, which allows us to change the menus seasonally at our Asheville bed and breakfast, as well as introducing special dishes based on that day’s market bounty. In addition, all breakfast goods are baked daily on the premises as well as the delectables for any scheduled afternoon teas, which are usually served in the Library, Parlor, or on the porches depending on the weather.
Start your day with a wonderful breakfast! Each morning our Asheville bed and breakfast guests enjoy a full, hot gourmet meal, which is served usually in the grand dining room at our formal dining table. On occasion, in the warmer months, breakfast is served on the covered porches overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast is served at 9:00 AM.
For those who need that early morning “Cup of Joe,” freshly brewed coffee and hot water for tea are available anytime from any of the coffee bars located on each floor. You may enjoy taking your morning coffee in the house or possibly sitting on the front porch and watching the day begin.
Our sumptuous three-course breakfast starts with fruit juice, homemade buttermilk biscuits or muffins, and a specially prepared fruit dish. A tantalizing hot entrée is then presented to you to give your taste buds an early morning treat. The menu of the day might include Sweet Pepper Scrambled Eggs, Breakfast Casserole, Ginger Pancakes with Lemon Sauce, or our back-to-basics southern style breakfast.
Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are always available in the dining room coffee bar, and afternoon snacks are ready for you when you return from your day of exploring. Raiding the cookie jar is encouraged!
