BREAKFAST AT THE INN

BLUE DOOR Inn is a licensed Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast allowing us to offer fresh food options prepared in-house.   Breakfast is served from May 1st through November 30th but not offered as part of our Winter or Spring Rate Specials.  The 1857 Blacksmith Shop was revamped as the Breakfast Room for our free continental breakfast service. 


Mid-Week Basic Continental Breakfast includes fresh fruit/berries, muffins baked in the early morning, house granola, yogurt, juice, milk, tea & coffee.  


Expanded Weekend Continental Breakfast Saturday's offering is usually mini blueberry buckwheat pancakes.  Sunday is an egg bake, quiche, biscuits with sausage gravy or other "hot" choice. 


We're always experimenting and adding new breakfast items.  Watch out we've been known to serve apple pie and corn on the cob when they're in season!

AUTHENTIC GERMAN BREAD!!!
No really ... we serve fresh authentic German-style bread shipped directly from Germany as part of our breakfast service.  After much searching for a "local" bread provider for "real" breads we decided to go directly to the source.  Bread Village ships to the Blue Door Inn weekly and our breads arrive partially baked.  We complete the process each morning and serve hot crusty fresh bread!

  • 100% Natural & Vegan:  no additives, non-GMO, low fat, low sugar
  • High Fiber & Protein:  up to 8g fiber, 6g protein per slice
  • Gently Milled & Slowly Fermented:  produces a more nutritious, digestible bread
LOCAL FOOD SOURCING

We are blessed at the Blue Door Inn to have access to many good local resources for our breakfast menu & preparation.  When the Breakfast Room opened in 2016 we made the decision to use local and organic food whenever possible.  We're always on the lookout so let us know if there's a local source we're missing.

ALMA GENERAL STORE  www.almageneralstore.net
Alma is underserved when it comes to grocery stores, but the Alma General Store keeps us supplied in Amish butter for our breakfast service and local meats.  In the summer we can also find local produce.  Great place for our hotel guests to find a steak so they can grill out on our patio.
