Two Breakfasts and B&B Photos

Ahh, and so we arrive at the last day of our B&B vacation in Asheville.

Catching up? Here are my previous Asheville posts:

It was a beautiful morning at the B&B. I didn’t feel like I was quite ready to go. Like I hadn’t spent as many lazy afternoons reading on the porch, lounging on the couch, or sipping wine outdoors as I wanted. But, it was time to pack up.

We headed to the front porch of the B&B for breakfast al fresco. We started with fresh watermelon.

Next, we had orange muffins.

And lastly – cranberry-nut pancakes with a mini quiche.

The quiche was like a baby version of that mile-high one I had at the other Asheville restaurant.

Sis enjoyed breakfast, but she had plans for a second. She’d heard about the French toast at Books & Breadboard and decided it was her mission to try it before we left. Since today was our last day in town, we had plans to head over to Books & Breadboard before they stopped serving breakfast at 11am.

The staff (like 5 or 6 people!) remembered us from our trip a couple days before and gave us such a warm welcome. :)

I had no plans of ordering another breakfast since I was still full from the first one. I just hoped to get a bite of hers. I ordered some mint tea with honey to sip on.

Sis happily ordered the French toast and shared a slice with me when it came out all propped up and gorgeously displayed on a bamboo cutting board.

I must say, I know I’ve used the word “best” a lot when I talk about this restaurant, but this really may have been the best French toast I’ve ever had. The inside wasn’t undercooked – it was nice and firm. The outside was just-crispy. But the flavor was what really won me over – orange-scented with a bite of cinnamon. I’m definitely going to try re-creating this one sometime.

I decided I should try ordering something one last time, but I just got a chicken salad sandwich on pumpernickel for the road.

Here are a couple more photos of our B&B that I snapped over the trip.

My favorite spot of the B&B was definitely this long, open porch. Gorgeous!

Hopefully, we get to return to Asheville soon to revisit some of our new, fave spots and discover others!
