Breakfast is a Big Deal

As you gear up for a day of cycling, hiking, skiing, running, touring or lounging (yes, lounging burns energy, too), your hosts will ensure you receive the energy required to fuel your action-packed day.

Breakfast is a big deal. Our moms and our nutritionists have been telling us for years that it is the most important meal of day. Breakfast at Craigleith Manor is thoughtfully prepared to provide nutritious and delicious options for every guest.

Sourced from local ingredients, the breakfast menu changes daily and is created with health-conscious, active guests in mind. Upon arrival, you will receive a breakfast menu for the next day. You can choose what you want to have for breakfast and when you want to have breakfast. We love choices.

You can sit for breakfast anytime from 08:00 to 09:30 in the dining room or weather permitting on the outdoor main floor decks. You can choose from a selection breakfast beverages, starters and entrees featuring homemade gluten-free granola, jams, juices, coffee and a long list of herbal and other teas. The Summer & Fall 2020 breakfast menu features three unique omelets daily!  For the bacon and egger’s you can always have them done anyway you like! There is something for everyone. Our full service breakfasts are made to order with the freshest local ingredients that we can source.

Coffee is king. We serve only the best Kicking Horse organic fair-trade coffee, which is roasted in British Columbia. The coffee pot never goes empty. You keep drinking it, and we’ll keep making it. We serve French press Kicking Horse decaf coffee also.

Special Dietary Needs are not a problem for us

We take great care in how our breakfasts are put together to cater to the dietary needs of our guests.
