Breakfast at the Deutsche Strasse Bed and Breakfast isn't just breakfast, it is an experience. Enjoy the light of the morning sun on our all season sun porch while enjoying that first cup of coffee an hour before breakfast time. The table is set with fine china and crystal and the four courses of our breakfast are served to our guests at a time that is convenient for them. The first course served is a homemade granola made in our kitchen and sometimes you can smell the aroma of the granola baking the night before. Anticipate the flavor! A fruit course is served in conjunction with the granola. Sometimes our guests sprinkle the fruit selection with the granola and others enjoy the taste of the fruit in its own course. We try to serve locally grown fruits when they are in season in a way that is pleasurable to the palate. The main entrée of the breakfast will sometimes feature the Bavarian Omelet or the Homemade Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes with warm orange syrup, or a manly quiche called the Crazy German Quiche. These are just samples of the variety of our offerings. It is the tradition at the Deutsche Strass to serve as the final course a dessert! It could be something as traditional as muffins, but we enjoy surprising our guests with unique selections as well. Some examples are the Mini Black Forest Fudge Cakes, Key Lime Mousse with raspberries, or a slice of a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll. Come enjoy the cuisine as well as the conversation!
Our Coffee is served an hour before breakfast and continues during breakfast. The Deutsche Strasse is the only location at which you may enjoy this special blend. Originally, Ramona would blend together a variety of purchased coffee beans and use this mixture for her own Breakfast Blend. Many of our guests would inquire as to where we purchased this delightful blend, and we would advise them it was our own. As this request was made by several guests over the year, we contacted a coffee roaster with the challenge to emulate the blend we were making. We found a roaster who did so successfully and they now commercially produce our blend for our use. We now have half pound bags of our special blend in either bean or ground form available for purchase. Not only can our guests enjoy our coffee in their homes, at work, and when travelling, but they can also use the pouches of coffee as host/hostess gifts, thank you gifts, or stocking stuffing stuffers. Wake up and smell the coffee!

If you have specific food allergies, we will be sure to avoid those foods when preparing breakfast. Please feel free to call and discuss these needs with us.

Prep: 30 minutes total.
Ingredients: Omelet Ingredients 3 eggs 1 Tablespoon water 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 Tablespoon butter Filling 1/2 cup breakfast sausage, cooked and drained 1/3 cup chopped onions, cooked until caramelized 1/3 cup finely grated Swiss cheese. Garnish Fresh tomatoes, peeled and diced – 1/3 cup Orange slices and a strawberry Butter Croissant
Directions: Put first three ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and beat with hand-held beater until completely mixed and slightly frothy. Set aside. Heat at medium heat a 9-inch non-stick fry pan and melt the butter until it sizzles. Tilt the pan to grease all areas. Pour in egg mixture and cover for one minute. Remove cover and take a heat resistant spatula and slightly lift the edges of the egg, a portion at a time, allowing the wet egg to spread out and go under the cooked portion. Cover, again, for about 30 – 45 seconds. When the egg is set, layer each ingredient of the filling on half of the circle of egg in the order given. Season with pepper to taste, and then take the spatula and work up edge of the empty side of the egg. Fold this side over the filled half. Cover and let the omelet cook about 30 seconds. Remove the omelet from the pan by tipping the pan onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with Omelet with tomatoes. Put a warmed croissant on the plate next to the omelet if desired. Arrange Orange slices and strawberry to complete the filling of the plate.
