The Biggest Complaint We Get

November 1, 2015 by captain swift inn

For 12 years, there’s one complaint we get all the time…

“You give us too much good food!”

We hear this nearly every day… Many of our guests tell us they don’t even need to eat lunch because they’re still full from breakfast.

We never want anyone to get up from the table hungry. That’s why we serve a two-course breakfast every morning: a starter and the main course.

Before we became innkeepers, we traveled across the U.S., regularly staying at Bed & Breakfasts. And a two-course breakfast is our favorite. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all!

We want to make sure all our of guests have enough food to fuel them for their adventures around Maine.

Today, we’re sharing two of our favorite menus: Grilled Pineapple with Ginger Cream and Tomato Herb Frittatas.

These are two of our easiest breakfast items, but two of the most popular. We hope you enjoy them too!
