Guests sit down for a bountiful breakfast in the French-country influenced dining room, replete with a glowing fireplace and artistically-appointed tables. Guests of the Inn may choose to eat in front of the open fire or cozy up to a window-seat with a lovely view of Santa Ynez’s charming country lanes. Larger groups may share one of the community tables. Since the Santa Ynez Inn only serves breakfast to our guests, the ambiance is always peaceful, intimate and quiet. Perfect for comfortable meals and friendly conversation!

Guests may indulge in variety of breakfast entrees, as well as a Continental breakfast, complete with our chef’s hand-made granola and freshly baked scones and muffins. A favorite among guests is the Italian Eggs Benedict, with two eggs and Italian Sausage on an Italian Baguette with fresh Pesto sauce. Another delicious dish is the Black Forest Ham and Gruyere Crepes with eggs and Grilled Heirloom Tomatoes. Our Chef is happy to create made-to-order omelettes, and often creates omelettes using only egg-whites, for guests with special dietary needs.
