Sunny's Rooster Ramblings
Brrrr. Winter is making a grand entrance this year, all across the country. Flannel sheets and warm quilts are the order of the night around here. And with the holidays approaching, meals need to be a little more special yet not add too many calories -- need to save those for the holiday snacks! How about a crock-pot casserole? Eggnog French Toast? Warm crock-pot fruit cobbler instead of cold fruit? Hot spiced apple cider? Gingerbread scones with maple butter? Feeling warmer now? I know I am. AND I have the energy for that last minute shopping and round of holiday get-togethers.
Lewiston does have history in the winter. This year we commemorate the burning of the village by the British during the War of 1812 with a dedication of a memorial statuary honoring our Tuscarora neighbors who saved the villagers. This is installed at the corner of Center Street and Portage Road.
Relax all evening; Start the day with a full breakfast
We encourage you to take your first cup of coffee and sit on the porch swing before you tuck into our full breakfast. Unless, of course you have an early date to meet friends. Or maybe you have the first ride on the Jetboat and prefer to eat later. Simply let us know the night before the time and food you would prefer so we can make this YOUR vacation.
Over the years we have asked our guests for their breakfast preferences and discovered that healthy hearty breakfasts are much preferred over fancy gourmet fare. Everyone requests Sunny's Scones and she has whipped up a variety of flavors made with whole wheat, oat, multi-grain, or wheat-free (rice) flour. She'll add a bit of fruit or nuts then adds just a touch of decadence adding flavored honey butter to compliment the scone of the day.
With the hearty breakfast and family atmosphere at Sunny's Roost our large dining room allows you to practice a boarding house reach. We attempt to have a variety of local items on hand to help spark your breakfast appetite, so you can choose from the following list or ask if we can make something special. Here's just a sample of breakfast items Sunny enjoys serving:
- Orange cinnamon French toast served with orange honey butter and maple syrup
- Eggs of many persuasions including omelets with assorted fillings, fritatas, stratas, and baked eggs
- Add some meat to breakfast; sausages, bangers, breakfast steaks, pork chops or bacon - Canadian or regular
- Buttermilk, whole wheat, buckwheat, oat pancakes OR waffles!
- Most items can be made gluten free or vegan if enough notice is given
We want Sunny's Roost to the kind of place where you feel comfortable kicking off your shoes and putting your feet up on the furniture, coming down to breakfast in the comfortable bathrobes you find in the room, or inviting friends to join you on the roomy front porch.
What are you waiting for? We're looking forward to your visit Our home may be 100+ years old and within the Village of Lewiston's Historic District, but our welcome is ever in the present. The quiet, after concert evenings and our comfortable beds let you rest up for the next day's adventure.
