You deserve to awaken to the Bloomsbury breakfast feast! Everyday should begin with the perfect meal — a perfect gourmet breakfast feast.
Take your seat and admire the breakfast service in the 1854 Bloomsbury, Chesnut Dining Room. To highlight the deliciousness about to be served, the table is well-laid with Westmoreland Milkglass, fine silver and Deneen Pottery mugs. The perfect cup of coffee made with beans blended at Little River Roasting Company in Spartanburg SC or cup of hot tea highlighting either Charleston Tea Plantation and Twinings greets you.
The First Course
The first course of the Bloomsbury breakfast feast always features fruit. In fact, fruit soup is a norm at the Chesnut dining table.
Cold Cantaloupe Soup
Hot Apple Soup
Buttermilk Strawberry Soup
Or, you might enjoy White Wine Poached Pears, Fresh Watermelon Pizza, Tri-berry Parfait, or Fresh Fruit drizzled with local Honey from Quiet Content Farm.
The Bread Course
Chef Katherine is known for piping hot Biscuits served right from her Grandmother Sallie Rose’s iron skillet.
Farm-fresh butter and speciality jams/jellies/preserves made on the premises are definitely served with those amazing biscuits.. When asked which jam is her favorite, Katherine laughs and replies, “The last one I made.” But, seriously, she loves the Lemon Lavender (the lavender comes from the George Washington Inn) or any of the ones that contain toasted pecans such as Berry Nut. The pronunciation is “puh-kann”, not “pee-can”…growing up in rural Arkansas, Katherine can explain why.
The Main Course
You can stay for three days or fourteen days, you will never have a repeat entree! After just one Bloomsbury breakfast feast, you’ll know why guests return soon and often. Sweet or savory, the entree is prepared around each and every persons’ diet restrictions.
Bloomsbury Egg Benedict. Dutch Babies with Peppered Praline Bacon. Ricotta Eggs and local Sausage. Fresh Blueberry Casserole. Egg Nests and Blistered Tomatoes. Cottage Cakes.
You dream it and it might be on the menu. Well except for Belgium Waffles. Sorry! If you have ever lived in Belgium as the Browns did, you will understand why. Belgium Waffles are made with a dough and not a batter.
Oh, one more thing — there is no “short order” cooking at Bloomsbury.
The Last Course
Most guests at Bloomsbury love what often times follows the Bloomsbury Breakfast Feast! Many have a keen interest in this prominent, historic manor home sitting on two acres in the heart of the historic district of Camden SC. Co-owner Bruce Brown is more than willing to share the history.
