Start Your Day Right at Our Asheville, NC Inn

Whether you enjoy standard fare or vegetarian/vegan options, breakfast at The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast is sure to be a highlight of your day. Jim Palmer, resident chef & innkeeper, prides himself on the fact that standard B&B food is not served here at our Asheville accommodations.

For example:

  • French Toast is stuffed with ricotta, cream cheese, and honey; sautéed; then baked to plump and moist perfection.
  • Eggs Benedict – only better. Sometimes whole grain toast is substituted for the usual muffin, or shaved honey ham is used instead of Canadian bacon. Our herbed Hollandaise sauce is the best you have ever tasted.
  • Omelets are prepared in the classic French style; whipped until light and airy and filled with a variety of succulent ingredients.

Guests with special dietary restrictions are always welcome. Jim is experienced with preparing food for vegans, vegetarians, diabetics, and persons with specific food allergies. Just let us know your needs in advance if possible, or at check in.
