Staycation - Vintners Inn brunch


The resort grounds.. so romantic to wake up and look outside and see vineyards!


Of course I could not wait to break out my brand new clutch!  I took her to brunch the very next morning and what do you know she matched the plates! hahaha.


How cute is this place it feels as if you're eating in a tiny cottage in the country somewhere in Europe!


The breakfast includes one entree and an all you can eat buffet bar with fresh cut fruit and various yogurts, cereal, pastries, cheeses and juices.  All of the pastries are made on sight.  They had some of the most delicious croissants I've ever had!


Waffles & cream w/ boysenberry sauce and veal sausage

The waffles were soooo good they were buttery and crisy on the outside and slightly soft and a bit custardy in the inside.  I wasn't too keen on the veal sausage but to be fair I don't really like veal or sausage for that matter but the hubs thought it was delicious. 

Eggs Benedict w/ Hashbrowns

My eggs benedict were extraordinary!!!  The in house english muffins really took the benedict to a whole new level!  I also gotta show some love for the crispy hash browns.  I find it really annoying when I go to a brunch place and the hash browns are soggy what's up with that?!


Look at that egg.. sooo freakin' yellow.. you don't get egg yolks that color in the city!


After brunch we took a stroll on the resort grounds.


A quickie preview photo to show you what the clutch looks like size wise I cropped out the top you don't need to see my scary no makeup morning face hahaha.  Don't worry a real OOTD with the clutch is coming next week!





A strawberry shortcake bar for the road :)  Back to reality. *sigh*

  30. This place reminds me of this gorgeous resort we stayed at a while ago called Pere Marquette Lodge in Illinois. Everything is decorated with a hom-y, staycation type of feel to it.
    It looks like you had a nice, relaxing time, and I lovelovelove the clutch!!

  33. Gosh that food looks yummy - I always love a running egg i'm really had a dip endless amounts of toast in them and eat them that way! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like that purse. the colour is quite nice and matches the blue heels you posted a while back =D

    salmon eggs benedict is probably my all time favourite breakfast dish. I can't think of anything tasting better than that :O so so good but not for people who dislike eating egg yolk lol. I know a few girls that cant eat yolk (they find it gross).

    I saw you had a pair of louboutins a while back :O Lucky bum!! The front desk girl at vinters inn is really strange though. Why didnt they sell the cookies? Weird lol :S woman didnt know what she was doing there.

    I hope you are well. Lots of people getting sick so stay safe.

  37. Oh what a lovely place for a little getaway. And I'm pretty sure everyone will be commenting on your clutch or flats or about the vineyard, but not me

    I've gotta talk about that breakfast of yours!! LOL You've got the same taste in breakfast as me. EXACTLY something I'd order, eggs benedict & hash browns! ;D Yum, just thinking about it is making me hungry. I've got a brunch scheduled for Sunday, so I think I already have an idea of what I'm ordering. Lol, hopefully it's on the menu :)

    Have a good weekend hun~!
