GUESTS HAVE TO SAY:
“If I were to try to imagine the most exquisite tea, in the most magical setting, prepared by the most warmly charming hostess, I would have imagined our afternoon tea of today! It was my tea dream come true.”
Such are the ingredients, patiently cultivated, long-grown, unadulterated, nature-bred, that enter into a breakfast produced by the “slow-cooking” kitchen. It is fare that spurns pancakes and muffins -- poor sources of nutrition in any event -- favoring rather a light, fresh, wholesome and flavorful variety of dishes, among which typical is the wild mushroom omelet, with the mushrooms -- oyster, matsutake, shitake, chanterelles, black trumpet, boletes, lobster, morels -- from a farm up the coast, the whole sautéed in raw butter with onions, fresh garlic, fresh ginger and often a vegetable green, made piquant with a little salt, masala spice and soy sauce. Other choices include Kismet’s granola mixed with organic, sulfur-free dried fruit, such as apricots, banana chips, mango, pineapple, papaya, raw roasted seeds, shred coconut, and served with yogurt made at the inn. Or a special egg dish with saffron, vegetables and haloumi cheese from one of the raw milk creameries aforementioned, on multi-grain or cinnamon raisin toast; coffee or tea, freshly-brewed, and fresh seasonal fruit, jam and butter, always accompany what is said to be the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is included with your stay at Kismet. We do offer breakfast for non-guests at $30 a person.
All breakfasts will accompany fresh fruit, freshly brewed coffee or tea, jam, raw butter & milk.

Kismet granola mix with Kismet yogurt made without any additives or sweetener. It is always made with the previous batch of yogurt every two weeks when fresh milk is delivered.
